radiologic technology

The two-year Radiologic Technology Program is a Marietta Memorial Hospital sponsored Certificate Award program with articulation with Washington State Community College for an Associate of Applied Science degree.

Radiologic technologists are specially trained allied health care professionals who use radiography (x-ray) equipment to produce images (radiographs) of tissues, organs, bones, and vessels of the body to diagnose pathology and injury. Radiographers also assist the radiologists (physicians specializing in the use of x-rays for diagnosis and treatment) during patient radiographic exams.

Classes begin each fall and run for six consecutive semesters. In addition to classroom instruction, you will also have labs and clinical rotations. This portion of your training is held at Memorial Health System: Marietta Memorial Hospital, Selby General Hospital, Belpre Medical Campus, MHS - Wayne Street Campus; and Camden-Clark Medical Center, Memorial Campus.

The Certificate (of Completion), awarded by Marietta Memorial Hospital, allows you to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (A.R.R.T.) credentialing exam to become a Registered Radiologic Technologist. 

Additionally, as a graduate from WSCC, you will earn an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree in Radiologic Technology concurrently with the Certificate Award.
