Radiologic Technology

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.
