The mission of the Department of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences is to advance clinical, diagnostic and therapeutic practices in health care through excellence in teaching developed within a culture of interprofessional collaboration.
The Department of Clinical and Diagnostic Sciences is the academic home of five undergraduate programs that each focus on different aspects of clinical care:
- Clinical Laboratory Science – chemistry, microbiology, medical laboratory analysis
- Diagnostic Medical Ultrasound – anatomy, physiology, medical imaging using sound waves
- Nuclear Medicine – physiology, oncology, medical imaging using radioisotopes
- Radiography – anatomy, medical imaging using radiation and magnetic fields
- Respiratory Therapy – physiology, pharmacology, pulmonary critical care
These accredited programs develop health care professionals who have state-of-the-art clinical knowledge and skills. Each program has a 100% board examination pass rate and 100% job placement rate. CDS students are well prepared to excel in collaborative health care teams because they participate in engaging interprofessional activities with students in medicine, nursing and the other programs in the School of Health Professions.
