The Radiologic Technology program is an Associate of Science degree program, consisting of a cohort group completing 4 semesters + 1summer semester which includes an 18-month clinical internship. This degree program provides an opportunity for students to be educated and trained in the healthcare career of Radiologic Technology.
The objective of the program is to graduate students who are competent and confident in providing excellent patient care in the field of radiography. The goal of the radiology program is to prepare competent entry-level radiographers in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills),and affective (behavior) learning domains. Students will demonstrate the knowledge and critical thinking skills to competently and safely perform radiographic procedures along with developing communication and patient care skills.
Students will practice radiology skills in lab. Those skills will be applied and enhanced in an affiliated medical center by training on the job with a licensed radiographer imaging patients. The radiology program prepares the student to work in a hospital performing all routine radiography and fluoroscopy exams.
The didactic education will prepare the student for taking the national exams of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)in addition to the Certified Radiologic Technologist license from the California Department of Public Health.
