About Medical Imaging SciencesThe School of Arts & Sciences-Newark and the Rutgers School of Health Professions (Rutgers-SHP) offer a joint Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Imaging Sciences. (The old name “Allied Health Technologies” was replaced in September 2012.) Medical Imaging Sciences majors complete their prerequisite science and math courses at Rutgers University-Newark. They apply to Rutgers-SHP in January for admission to one of four MIS programs: Cardiac Sonography, Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Nuclear Medicine, or Vascular Sonography. All four 15-month programs begin at Rutgers-SHP in September.
Admissions are competitive and so not guaranteed. Minimum admissions requirements include an overall GPA of 2.85 and grades of C or better in all pre-requisite science courses taken at Rutgers University-Newark. Students who transfer into Rutgers University-Newark must complete at least half their biology credits at Rutgers University-Newark to qualify for the joint degree program.
