RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY DEGREE (RT23)

The Radiologic Technology associate degree program is a sequence of courses that prepares students for positions in radiology departments and related businesses and industries. Learning opportunities develop academic, technical, and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. The program emphasizes a combination of didactic and clinical instruction necessary for successful employment. Program graduates receive an associate of applied science degree, have the qualifications of a radiographer, and are eligible to sit for a national certification examination for radiographers.

Acceptance to the Radiologic Technology program is via a competitive selection process based primarily on grade point average of prerequisite courses and the score on the PSB Allied Health Aptitude test.
