The Department of
Kinesiology, Health, and Imaging Sciences is housed
in the College of Science, and has more than 350 students
enrolled in its graduate and undergraduate programs. The department offers
students practical education and an opportunity to learn by doing, in
facilities that employ the latest technology and equipment.
Students who graduate from the Department of Kinesiology, Health and Imaging Sciences are prepared with both the knowledge and practical skills
to give them an edge in a competitive job market. Students have hands-on
learning opportunities at the following facilities:
KHIS students receive real world experience in a variety of
settings. Majors can become a group
fitness class instructor or personal fitness trainer at the University's
Recreation and Wellness Center (RWC) through work-study and internship programs. Exercise science students complete
internships in corporate or clinical settings that prepare them for the
business world or physical therapy school. Health Promotion internships are offered in
hospital settings, health departments, community health centers, corporate
settings and YMCA's to mention a few. Health and Physical Education students
perform their student teaching in both elementary and secondary settings in a
semester long experience. Our students
work with real clients before they graduate, giving them the first-hand
knowledge and experience employers seek today.
The Center for Health, Education & Research (CHER) building is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to provide students with quality instruction for classes and laboratories and to prepare them for clinical experiences. As a student, you will simulate imaging procedures in a controlled environment prior to performing them on live patients. Laboratories have videotaping capabilities, allowing students and faculty to evaluate performance. This also allows students to develop their skills and become more confident prior to their clinical assignments. The CHER building also houses a testing and multimedia center that provides for online testing and computerized instructional modules that enhance learning. These experiences will provide you with knowledge and confidence in preparation for national certification exams.
The lab is equipped with three computed radiographic machines, imaging plates and computer imaging stations. Computerized imaging monitors allow the faculty and students to view images stored on the mini picture archiving and communication system from the computerized radiography rooms. Patient care equipment includes:
The CT/MR labs are equipped with eight computer workstations containing discipline software programs. These computer workstations allow you to reconstruct images and perform other imaging parameters needed in CT and MR, providing you with the skills and preparation needed prior to clinical assignment.
The laboratory has four ultrasound machines, various anatomic phantoms, computerized monitors for the image reconstruction area and a MedSim simulation manikin. The simulator allows you to perform virtual sonographic examinations by scanning a realistic manikin with access to computer archived volumes of normal and pathologic patient ultrasound data. The modern equipment promotes academic excellence and student success by providing you the opportunity to develop clinical skills, demonstrate greater confidence and perform at higher levels during your clinical rotations.
