Radiography Technology


The primary mission of the Radiography Technology program is to prepare students for a career as a Registered Radiologic Technologist. The primary responsibility of a radiologic technologist is to create images of patients’ bodies using medical imaging equipment. Imaging exams help medical providers diagnose and treat injuries and diseases.

Students in this program will be instructed in classroom and laboratory settings to learn on-the-job skills, and then apply their knowledge in a clinical setting. Students will have the opportunity to gain experience in many healthcare settings including but not limited to hospitals, urgent care, and family practice clinics.
