Advanced Pediatric Imaging Post-Master's Certificate
Beginning in the fall of 2023, the School of Radiologic Sciences will be offering an Advanced Pediatric Imaging Post-Master’s Certificate program. The program provides integrated didactic instruction with the utilization of imaging simulation. During the course of the program, imaging of the pediatric GI system, GU system, respiratory system, musculoskeletal (MSK) system, and the neurologic system will be taught. The program ensures you have a comprehensive understanding of pediatric imaging practices and provides valuable hands-on training through simulated imaging procedures relative to each pediatric body system that prepare you for real-world scenarios. Pediatric sedation and physical exam for pediatric imaging procedures are also taught in this program.
The program operates synchronously in a virtual setting, making it accessible to busy professionals.
The program is two (2) semesters in length and is offered during the fall and spring semesters. Tuition is $4,800.00 per semester with no additional cost for nonresident students.
The student qualifies for a certificate of proficiency upon completion of the program.
