Radiologic technologists are highly skilled professionals who assist the radiologist (a physician) in the diagnosis of disease using ionizing radiation. As a radiologic technologist, you will: provide care to patients during radiographic procedures; position patients for accurate radiographic projections; determine the amount of radiation needed for proper diagnostic image; be knowledgeable of radiation safety practices.
The associate of science in health science degree (concentration in radiologic technology) consists of 25 hours of General Education requirements and 53 credit hours of radiology core courses. Successful completion of the radiologic technology curriculum qualifies students to take the ARRT examination.
Program instruction is 24 months (6 semesters) with instruction in the clinical setting and campus classroom. You will learn theory and principles in the classroom and laboratories, and apply this knowledge in clinical settings.
