Introduction

Our Dual-Degree BS in Radiologic Sciences/MHS in Advanced Medical Imaging and Leadership (3+1) program not only advances your knowledge within the radiologic field and specialty, but prepares you to take on various healthcare leadership roles by delving into such crucial subjects as health policy and health administration.

Program Overview

Become a skilled technologist and a resourceful leader

The Dual-Degree BS in Radiologic Sciences/MHS in Medical Imaging and Leadership (3+1) program gives you the opportunity to obtain both a bachelor’s and master’s degree, as well as certification in two radiographic modalities within four years — a rare offering in higher education. The BS in Radiologic Sciences program, completed in three years, first develops technical and interpersonal communication skills through robust classroom, laboratory and clinical experiences. This provides maximum exposure to a range of radiographic techniques and imaging procedures, preparing you in both the art and science of radiography.

In your fourth year, you’ll move on to the advanced medical imaging and leadership program, a unique collaboration between the School of Health Sciences’ Department of Diagnostic Imaging and the School of Business’ Department of Health Care Management and Organizational Leadership. This integrated, interprofessional curriculum combines core business disciplines and guided health management courses with advanced imaging modalities in three distinct pathways: magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computed tomography (CT) and women’s imaging (WI).

Unique learning opportunities

The Bioanthropology Research Institute and the Department of Diagnostic Imaging in conjunction with the Yale Peabody Museum examine animal mummies with digital radiography and multi-detector computed tomography on the North Haven Campus. Julia Bailey ’20, a radiologic sciences major, assists with the scanning.

When you graduate from the dual-degree program, you’ll enter the workforce ready to take on managerial roles within your radiology healthcare organization and able to meet the needs of patients as an efficient and highly qualified advanced imaging professional.
