About Our Department

   
   

 

The Department of Medical Imaging and Radiological Sciences was established in August 2002, and the department plans to enroll 55 new students every year. The aim of the department is to train, theoretically and practically, technical and research specialists in basic radiological sciences, medical imaging, medical radiological technology, and clinical practice. Through our training students are equipped with good abilities to practice radiological technology, medical treatment and further research contributing to the elevation of medical quality in Taiwan. The department also set up a two-year in-service program in medical imaging and radiological sciences in August 2006.
   
   

 

Courses are designed with five major fields: basic sciences, basic medicine, radiology and imaging sciences, clinical radiological technology, and clinical practice. We focus on basic electronic medical imaging and disciplines in radiology with interdisciplinary studies in clinical diagnosis, clinical treatment, nuclear medicine, sonography and imaging. We train students to have the ability for special research and thesis writing, the professional skills for radiological sciences, and the humanistic quality from general education. 142 credits are required for graduation, including 18 for core courses of general education, 112 for professional skills courses, and 12 credits for liberal education.
Courses in the first year are on the study of basic disciplines.
In the second year, we focus on important courses in basic medicine and basic radiology, along with courses in designs of computer programmes.
In th
e third year, courses are designed to focus on professional radiological technology and clinical studies, such as general introduction to radiology and clinical medicine.
Students are arranged for clinical practice in hospitals in the fourth year. This training will equip students with the quality required to be an accredited medical radiologist.
   
   
 

In order to train competent specialists in medical imaging and radiological sciences, our department has recruited 8 full-time teachers at or above the level of assistant professor, 4 full-time lecturers, and 4 part-time lecturers. In the upcoming future three years, the department plans to have 10 full-time teachers at or above the level of assistant professor in the faculty and will invite medical doctors and radiologists from hospitals to lecture on courses related to clinical practice so as to elevate our teaching quality and learning experience. For future teacher recruitment, the department will ensure the approach to our planned major interdisciplinary studies: medical imaging analysis, sonographic technology, radiological diagnosis technology, radiological treatment technology, nuclear medicine technology, medical physics, radiation measurement, radioactive isotope tracer technology, and radiation medicine development.
Major areas and the approach of the department are broad and multidisciplinary centered on both basic sciences and clinical sciences. We have designed 8 major areas:

  1. Radiological Diagnosis Technology
  2. Radiological Treatment Technology
  3. Radioactive Isotope Tracer Technology
  4. Medical Physics
  5. Medical Imaging Analysis
  6. Radiation Medicine Development
  7. Sonographic Technology
  8. Nuclear Medicine Technology
   
   
 


1. Establish close relationships with other hospitals and medical centers and consolidate teaching resources so as to develop integrated research projects.

   
   
  Graduating from the department means you can take a national examination to be an accredited medical radiologist, which allows you to practice radiology in hospitals or run your own clinic. You can be a medical physicist or participate in radiation protection, medical imaging processing, and nuclear medicine development in hospitals. You can also start your career in retail or maintenance of medical radiological equipment in private corporations. You can go for further studies, such as overseas studies, studying in national graduate schools or post-baccalaureate medical programs.
