Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences

The applied medical radiation sciences encompass a variety of disciplines, including radiological technology, radiation therapy and nuclear medicine technology. Because the world of medical radiation science is evolving vibrantly, there is a strong need for quality education and research in radiological sciences and protection. The Department of Radiological Technology and the Institute of Radiological Science maintain a strong commitment to new medical imaging technologies. We provide innovative programs blending an interdisciplinary core curriculum and ongoing clinical experience in radiological sciences. The 4-year bachelor's program in the Department of Radiological Technology Should prepare undergraduate students to apply for certification through the Taiwanese Registry of Radiological Technologists, since this certification is necessary for radiology technician working in hospitals, clinics and medical laboratories. Following degree completion, students are also eligible to write the registry exam of radiation protection technologists and the physicists.

Teaching Goals

  1. To develop academic programs and curricula that satisfies the requirement of professions.
  2. To teach in both traditional and the computer-assisted teaching methods with well functioning classrooms and laboratories.
  3. To provide clinical laboratory and hospitals programs with up to date knowledge and skills to meet the scientific and technological needs in radiological sciences related fields.
  4. To provide students with guidance and feedback regarding their academic and clinical performance.
  5. To train students to become qualified radiological technologist, radiation protection technologists and medical physicists.

Main Objectives

  1. Equip with professional knowledge and skills in the field of medical imaging and radiological sciences.
  2. Be able to work in a clinical environment and also in a research laboratory, and succeed in building careers in academic and industrial fields.
  3. Demonstrate evidence-based practice to identify the problem and causes and solve the problem properly.
  4. Show the professional attitudes and ethics to interact appropriately with other care providers, administrators, patients and their families.
  5. Realize the importance of life-long learning and professional development to maintain clinical competence.
