WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
The Ascension St. Vincent Radiography Program is the only hospital-sponsored associate degree program in Indiana!
Our students work with highly-experienced faculty representing all imaging modalities. We stress quality, comprehensive training and educational opportunities that prepare our students for a career in medical imaging and radiology sciences.
Radiology Services support all Ascension St. Vincent locations in Indiana using state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment and digital imaging systems.
Our students get considerably more hands-on experience with patients and technology than in most comparable 2-year radiography programs.
Our students receive instruction from faculty who are Ascension St. Vincent associates and are onsite in the clinical settings.
Our Mission is to make a positive difference in the lives and health delivery status of our students, the people we serve, and the community. This is accomplished through a commitment of excellence by our faculty and staff, Advisory Board, and the sponsoring institutions in the delivery of quality training and education opportunities in radiological sciences. We will display compassion and dignity to all. Our paradigms will be open to all aspects of education that do not violate the Mission or Core Values of our sponsoring and affiliated institutions.
