The radiographer is a health care professional that performs radiographic procedures that provide information to assist in the diagnosis and treatment of the patient. The Radiologic Technology Program consists of five semesters of full-time study which includes supervised clinical coursework in a radiology department. The program is affiliated with 17 area hospitals. Each student will be assigned to a variety of clinical sites during the two years of clinical coursework. Clinical experiences will include evening rotations.

Applicants for the program may begin working on the general education courses at any time.  The professional courses must be taken in sequence and are offered only at the Oak Ridge Branch Campus except for the clinical courses.  
 

Along with the general entrance requirements of the Allied Health Sciences programs, the applicants for Radiologic Technology Program must also:

 

  1. Submit all admission materials including applications, transcripts, and Spring grades by May 15 of the year you are applying.  Applicants who fail to have documents in by the deadline will not be considered for admission.
  2. Obtain a GPA of 2.5 or better in the required courses.
  3. Obtain a “C” or better in each required course.
  4. Complete 8 hours of clinical observation under the supervision of a registered radiologic technologist in a diagnostic radiology department.  A completed observation form must be submitted to the program director prior to the application deadline.  The form for documentation of observation hours may be obtained on the program’s webpage.

 

The Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182; (312) 704-5300; www.jrcert.org.  Graduates of the program are eligible to take the certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology.

These classes may be taken prior to being accepted into the program.
