The radiography program fosters and supports creative and positive learning experiences within an atmosphere of academic excellence and continuous improvement. The goal of the radiography program is to provide every student with the knowledge, skills and professional attributes necessary to succeed as radiographers.

The radiography program provides an organized curriculum that includes courses in general education and radiological education while preparing students for careers as members of the healthcare field. A radiographer is a licensed professional who conducts medical imaging scans using radiographs, fluoroscopic screens, and other imaging modalities. These images are used by physicians in the diagnosis of disease and injury. Radiographers work in hospitals, private practices, clinics, traveling agencies and other qualified facilities.

The radiography program is offered at Polk State’s Airside Center in Lakeland. Classes and clinical assignments are scheduled Monday through Friday.
