Welcome and thank you for visiting the website of the Department of Radiography and Radiological Science at the University of Calabar. We are a proud member of the College of Medical Sciences. In the Department of Radiography and Radiological Science, we strive to provide quality medical education to students, residents, and fellows on the various innovative techniques of providing exceptional patient care such as those involving the application of all fields of nuclear medicine, diagnostic and interventional radiology. Furthermore, we are deeply involved in qualitative and innovative research on ways to advance medical research using radiological techniques. We strongly encourage you to go through our web pages and find out more information about our academic programs, courses and curriculum, research, staffing structure, and other activities.

 

The Department runs courses and curriculum that lead to the award of undergraduate and postgraduate programs in radiology. We have a highly trained and experienced team of academic, clinical, administrative, and technical staff, who have a deep commitment to teaching, inspiring, and helping students to learn, acquire knowledge and skills, and consequently, develop experience in the use of radiography and radiological techniques in patient care. Over 40 permanent and ten part-time staff have been engaged by the University to help in giving our dear students the best training in medical education, research, and management.

 

We have laboratories that are equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities that are freely available for the training of students. We have graduated many happy and satisfied students, who are occupying excellent job positions in universities, hospitals, ministries, research institutes, and private practice. The high accomplishments of these students and their feedback have been very instrumental to the sustenance of our rich academic tradition.

History

The need for a degree program in Medical Radiography arose when the two hitherto existing schools of Radiography in Lagos and Ibadan could no longer attract students into the Diploma course. The B.Sc. program in Radiography started at the University of Calabar in 1980/81 session. The program hitherto covered a period of 4 years; this was reviewed in 1990/91 session to 5 years following the N.U.C recommendation.
The program was run in Radiography Department but was accorded full department status as Department of Radiography in 2005.
