The program prepares the student for certification as a full diagnostic radiologic technologist. Training includes radiographic equipment operation, exposure and image processing principles, radiographic procedures, radiation protection, patient care and directed clinical practice. The program runs for 24 months, including two summer sessions. Upon completion of the program, the student will be awarded a certificate of achievement and Associate of Science degree. Graduates of program are eligible to apply for certification by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the state of California (CRT and Fluoroscopy). The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
Program Learning Outcomes:
Students who complete the Radiologic Technology Program will be able to:
• Master entry-level skills in positioning, employ safe radiation practices on patients, self and others, and select appropriate technical factors for radiographic exams.
• Communicate using professional language, accurately obtain patient histories and listen without judgment to patients, visitors, physicians, and staff.
• Adapt standard procedures for non-routine exams, modify patient care skills for the injured or critically ill patients, and adjust technical factors for pathology and non-routine exams.
• Maintain calm composure at all times, maintain compliance with all mandatory health and safety policies, and treat patients, visitors, physicians and staff with kindness and respect.
The Radiologic Technology Program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required for an entry-level position as a Radiologic Technologist in a variety of settings.
This award revision includes removal of RADT 050 (2 units) and addition of new RADT 070L (.5 unit). Additionally, RADT 275 (2 units) removed from program and moved to Recommended Elective since it isn’t accrediting agency required material. Overall decrease of 3.5 units from 75 to 71.5 units.
