Radiography course work includes concentration in anatomy and physiology, patient care and management, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, radiation protection, quality assurance, and radiobiology. The course work also includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities including Johnston Health (Clayton and Smithfield), Wayne Memorial Hospital, Sampson Regional Medical Center, Harnett Health Betsy Johnson Hospital, and Eastern Carolina Medical Center with clinical supervision by all students.
Students enrolled in the Radiography program attend classes at JCC during daytime hours only. The clinical schedules are primarily day shift rotations although students are assigned to occasional night and weekend rotations, as well.
