Imagine a career in imaging. In just 24 months you can study to become a Radiologic Technologist. In this program you’ll learn everything from patient care to using technology to produce diagnostic medical images. Technical skills are just part of what you’ll take away from this hands-on program. You’ll also learn how to communicate with patients, solve problems and work on a team with other health care professionals. Care and compassion are essential elements of this program.
Upon successful completion of the educational and ethical requirements established by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT), students will be prepared to take the national certification exam. This program is the foundation for employment in diagnostic radiography and computed tomography.
Qualified applicants must have completed a minimum of an associate degree or higher. Consideration may be given to applicants who are within 15 hours of degree completion. The degree must be completed prior to completion of the radiologic technology program.
