The Radiography program is an exciting and dynamic field of medical imaging. Radiographers use radiation generating machines and associated equipment to produce images of internal body structure/organs. These images contain vital information needed by the physician for proper patient diagnosis.
The mission of Bacone College Radiography Program is to assist in meeting community needs for highly competent radiographers, who give skilled care with respect for individual, cultural, and spiritual differences, while maintaining the college commitment to serving American Indians. This is accomplished through didactic education, offered in a nurturing Christian environment, and clinical education provided at affiliated hospitals and clinics. The combination of theory and clinical practice enables the student to acquire the knowledge, skills, and professional values necessary for the practice of radiography in diverse community and clinical settings.
