Radiation Sciences

Radiation Sciences has an optional board certification that graduates may take. However, graduates must have four years of full-time work experience before sitting for the boards. We have information about the students who have passed the board certification but the data are not reported by cohort, or by the date each graduate passed the boards. We are only able to verify whether or not a graduate is board certified but are not provided with a detailed report from the Board of Radiology.
