The 24-month program prepares individuals for a career in radiography. Radiologic technologists are part of the medical team that performs diagnostic imaging. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care. 

The course of study consists of a balance of classroom theory and clinical education. The clinical education is competency-based and utilizes the Radiology Department, offsite facilities, evenings, weekends and specialty areas of CT, MRI and Interventional Radiology for achievement of the skills and proficiency that are required in the profession of radiography.

Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to apply for the national certification examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Graduates passing the certification examination are recognized as registered technologists. This program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (www.jrcert.org).
