The Radiologic Technologist is a vital part of the Radiology Department and the health care team. Responsibilities include patient care, operating radiographic equipment, performing radiologic procedures, and assisting the radiologist. Examinations conducted may include x-ray imaging, computer tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and mammography. Conforming to the regulations in the use of radiation to protect themselves, their patient, and coworkers is vital.
This two-year program is offered in partnership with CHI St. Vincent School of Radiologic Technology. A total of 79 credit hours are required, broken down into 19 general education credit hours and 60 RADG credit hours. The program begins every July (Summer II term) with a class of 18 students selected.
