Pre-Medical Imaging & Radiation Sciences
At Jefferson, you will be treated as a professional from day one. In our stimulating and supportive environment, you will build a strong foundation in sciences and humanities, preparing you for success in upper-division courses in Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences.
As a student in Pre-Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences program, you will complete two years of pre-professional coursework with other pre-medical and health students on Jefferson’s East Falls Campus. In late fall of your second year, you will begin the process of working with faculty to select concentrations in the medical imaging and radiation sciences professional program. Students who interview and maintain progression criteria are guaranteed to matriculate into the professional phase. Jefferson’s academic advisors and faculty work closely with our students on course selection and academic performance to ensure that each student is on pace to transition into the professional phase of the program.

Students who maintain progression criteria are guaranteed to matriculate into the professional phase. Students study two concentrations within Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences, one each in year 3 and year 4, at the Center City Campus.
Concentrations prepare students for success in a specific area of technological practice. We recommend that students study the concentration they are most interested in working in during their second year. Refer to the list of concentration options on the Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences program page.
