A radiological technologist is a person trained in the "art and science" of creating images of the human body. You'll work closely with the radiology doctor (radiologist) and other physicians, and play a vital role as a professional member of the 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 Orientation
Orientation for all Radiologic Technology applicants will be held on June 8 at 1 p.m. in the Southside Room, in the Robert M. Rogers Nursing and Health Sciences building on the corner of 5th and Fleishel.

+ Registry pass rate statistics represent the year that the graduate took the exam rather than the year that they entered the cohort. Since retention statistics are based on the year that student first enter the program, the number of graduates in a given year in the registry pass rate chart may differ from the number of graduates listed in the retention chart.
