The Radiography Technology program is the first step in your career as a Registered Radiologic Technologist. The primary responsibility of radiologic technologists is to create images of patients’ bodies using medical imaging equipment, such as X-ray, Fluoroscopy, and C-arm imaging. The images that you help create will help medical providers diagnose and treat injuries and diseases.
In this program you will be instructed in classroom and laboratory settings to learn on-the-job skills, and then apply that knowledge in a clinical setting. You will have the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of healthcare settings including -but not limited to- hospitals, urgent care, and family practice clinics. The experience you will gain at your clinical sites will put you on the path to a successful career as a Radiographic Technologist.
Adults only. High school students are not eligible to enroll in this program.
