The Radiologic Sciences program is a sequence of courses that fulfills the educational objectives established by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and competencies outlined by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. The program commences in June each year.
The program is accredited through YVC by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities and Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
A radiologic technologist is like a photographer. They take pictures or images of internal organs or structures within a person’s body. The technologist produces images using ionizing radiation, digital computers, etc. An integral job responsibility is patient care.
While producing images, human touch and patient safety are critical. Technologists will be faced with the entire spectrum of patient types: healthy people needing routine physical procedures, trauma victims, the critically or terminally ill, the elderly, etc.
