The Radiologic Technology program is designed to prepare individuals for employment as a Radiologic Technologist. The primary role of a Radiologic Technologist is to operate imaging equipment and perform technical procedures to produce x-ray studies for the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease.

Professional competence requires a Radiologic Technologist to apply knowledge of anatomy, physiology, positioning, radiographic techniques, patient care, and radiation protection to produce images of the body. Radiologic technologist’s must exercise independent judgment in the performance of imaging procedures and be able to communicate effectively with patients, other health professionals, and the public. Duties include maintaining patient records, image processing, assisting the radiologist in the performance of procedures and initiating basic life support techniques as necessary.

This program is designed for college graduates with degrees in other fields who are now interested in pursuing a career in medicine or other health professions. The curriculum affords students the opportunity to demonstrate academic excellence while mastering all elements of the premedical curriculum. Students enjoy the same intellectual energy, faculty attention, and laboratory facilities as full-time undergraduates.
