The program will provide you with communication and critical thinking skills as well as the technical and patient care skills you’ll need.
The curriculum follows the approved standard developed by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT). The full-time program begins each year in July and consists of 22 months divided into four semesters. A typical week consists of two days of class and three days of clinical education. Classes are held at Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center. Students study anatomy, patient positioning, equipment operation, computer applications, radiation protection, patient care, interpersonal communication and professional responsibilities. Please see the Academic & Clinical Education Calendar and Course Descriptions for complete descriptions and sequencing.
Through a combination of hands-on learning experiences with inpatients and outpatients in clinical education, students attain an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the principles and practices of radiologic technology. Students benefit from using state-of-the-art digital imaging equipment and working side-by-side with radiologists and experienced radiologic technologists. Clinical education assignments are scheduled at hospitals, imaging centers and orthopedic outpatient offices.
Full-time attendance is required. All classes and clinical education assignments are scheduled Monday-Friday, 7:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
