About the Program

The School of Radiologic Technology at Hancock Health is a full-time, 23-month program that trains students to become registered technologists in the field of radiology. Our curriculum includes classroom and clinic time so that students learn to perform diagnostic imaging procedures in a safe, professional manner. Typical imaging procedures in the field of radiologic technology include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and computed tomography (CT) scans.

The radiology program begins on the first Monday after July 4 of each year. Upon completion of the program, students earn a certificate and become eligible to sit for the national examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Passing the exam earns students R.T.(R)(ARRT) credentials under authority of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. View course descriptions here.
