A Brief History
The University of Guyana started its Associate degree in Radiography from 1966 to 2006. Later in 2013 this program underwent a complete revision of its curriculum by the Pan American Health Organisation, RAD-AID International with endorsement from Ms. Cynthia Cowling, Director of Education, International Society of Radiographers and Radiological Technologist (ISSRT). The revised curriculum was upgraded to a B.Sc. Medical Imaging, with students completing all degree requirements within Four (4) years.

In 2013 the University of Guyana welcomed its first batch of students to read for a full Degree in Medical Imaging, with its curriculum covering not only Radiography but introduction to newer modalities such as Magnetic Resonances Imaging, Computed Radiography, and Sonography. Later in 2017 the University graduated its first full batch of Medical Imaging Technologist, with its second batch well on their way.
The program endorses a strict standard of clinical and professional conduct for its students. Students are expected upon completion to:
- Engage in critical thinking and problem solving in clinical setting, while demonstrating quality patient care.
- Safely perform all radiological examination.
- Effectively communicating with colleagues and patients.
The University also offers clinical attachment in combination with classroom sessions, at affiliated hospitals. This enables students to gain a hands-on experience under the supervision of qualified Medical Imaging Technologists and Radiographers.
