In this program, students will have the opportunity to build the knowledge and skills required for an entry level position within a radiology lab. As a Limited Licensed Radiology Technologist (or Radiology Aide) you will become a vital team member in the medical field, functioning as an extension of a Radiologic Technologist to help meet the increasing needs of patients. Students will participate in both classroom and clinical learning activities as they learn the fundamentals of radiography, patient care, image processing, positioning, radiation safety, medical terminology, and anatomy and physiology.

Emphasis is placed on continuing education into a higher-level radiology career.
