Career Training Objective

The profession of radiology is guided by the ASRT and ARRT Code of Ethics and therefore it is the expectation of the College that each graduate following successful completion of the certification and registration exam, will work within legal and ethical boundaries. This responsibility requires dedication to applying standards that are outlined within the Code of Ethics for the Radiologic Technologist. Radiography is also a dynamic discipline that requires growth, personally and professionally, to better prepare for future needs of the profession. These needs may vary in many ways, dependent not only in the environment where one is employed, but across the profession as it changes. While the radiography program provides the requisite knowledge and skills to become competent as an entry level R.T., the program is confident that each graduate adopts the same enthusiasm for self-improvement.

The program will:

  1. Provide learning experiences that prepare every student for competent performance as a radiologic technologist that includes, but is not limited to: lecture, interactive and self-discovery activities, problem-based case presentations, small group discussions, mentoring, tactile/kinesthetic activities provided through laboratory experiences and clinical practicums.
  2. Provide comprehensive academic and clinical preparation for each student to have a successful result on the ARRT certification and registration exam.
  3. Graduate professionals that enthusiastically display leadership responsibilities while providing competent care.
  4. Provide access to activities that foster community awareness while responding to the needs of the community.
  5. Ensure that the standards required for accreditation for the College and the program is maintained.
  6. Support the community of radiologic technologists and health care professionals by providing opportunities for professional development.
