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.
