Radiologic Technology

Radiologic technologists are trained in the art and science of creating images of the human body. They work closely with radiologists and other physicians, and they play a vital role as a member of a patient’s total health care team.

As a graduate of the Radiologic Technology program, you'll be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) national examination. Our program has a 100 percent registry exam success for each of the last 12 years.

A balanced curriculum of general and clinical courses offers the student a rich environment in which to learn both the art and science of radiologic technology. Clinical courses are hands-on experiences at one of seven area hospitals. You'll spend 1800 hours at the clinical education site during the 24-month program and have every opportunity to learn your chosen profession.

Radiologic Technology Applicant Orientation

The mandatory Radiologic Technology Applicant Orientation will be June 7, 2018 in the Robert M. Rogers Nursing and Health Sciences Center, Southside Room at 1 p.m. Updates to your application will be accepted until (but not after) the orientation.
