Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology
The Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology is designed to prepare students to enter the profession of radiologic technology. The Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program is structured to provide students with basic concepts and competencies to work as a radiologic technologist in the healthcare environment. This is accomplished through didactic education in patient care, radiographic procedures, medical ethics and law, radiation biology, as well as radiation safety and protection. In addition, students learn mastery of the required skill sets during their structured clinical rotations in the clinical setting. Listed below are the requirements for the Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology.
The fulfilment of our mission and goals through an integrated curriculum insures students attain the following learning outcomes:
- Students will display effective management and communication skills, both verbal and written
- Students will demonstrate critical thinking and problem-solving skills
- Students will demonstrate the ability to prioritize safety and patient care
- Students will demonstrate professional work standards
- Students will acquire the professional tools and experience for an entry level position in radiologic technology
