Do you enjoy working with people? Do you have a desire to help people with health issues and/or injuries? Do you love technology? If so, then Radiologic Technology might be for you! Radiologic Technologists (Radiographers) are the radiologic sciences professionals that perform radiographic (x-ray) procedures on patients in hospitals, imaging center, and physician offices. Radiographers work in the emergency room, operating room, and imaging departments performing imaging (x-ray) studies to be used to diagnose injury and/or disease. Radiographers need a high level of knowledge and skill in communication, technology, critical thinking, and the desire to help people that are injured or ill. Sinclair's Radiologic Technology Program has experience faculty and a state-of-the-art x-ray lab that will help prepare graduates to work as an entry-level radiographer. Sinclair's program has excellent pass rates on the national certification exam and a high job placement rate.
A career in Radiologic Technology can lead in many directions. Graduates may find employment in comprehensive hospitals, suburban or rural outpatient centers or physician offices. Completion of this associate degree program can also lead to additional educational opportunities such as higher degree programs in management, education, etc. and advanced imaging programs designed to prepare radiographers for specialization in imaging modalities such as Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), etc.
Formal articulation agreements with other colleges and universities indicate how Sinclair programs and courses will transfer to other institutions.
Graduates of this Associate of Applied Science program are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' (ARRT) examination. Successful completion of the radiography certification exam is a requirement for employment in most institutions. Applicants for the ARRT are required to comply with state and federal laws. A pre-application may be made to ARRT in order to obtain a ruling regarding eligibility for the examination. Students with specific questions about legal issues are encouraged to contact the ARRT directly or review the ethics section of their website at www.arrt.org. Licensure is also required in Ohio, and graduates of the program qualify for a full Ohio radiographer license upon successful completion of the ARRT examination.Criminal background checks are required for all students enrolled in the Radiologic Technology Program. See online admissions packet for additional information.
