Radiologic Technology

radiology
Sponsored by Marietta Memorial Hospital

Radiologic Technologists are specially trained health care professionals who assist radiologists by producing radiographs used to diagnose pathology and injury. The technologist provides patient care and uses technology to provide quality health care to the patient.

Program

The two-year Radiologic Technology Program is a Marietta Memorial Hospital sponsored Certificate Award program with articulation with Washington State Community College for the A.A.S. degree. "RADT" courses begin each fall and consist of six consecutive semesters of study. "RADT" Didactic courses are held at Washington State; labs and clinical rotations are held at Marietta Memorial, Camden Clark Medical Center – Memorial Campus, Camden Clark Medical Center – St. Joseph's Campus and Selby General Hospital. Students complete the program in July of their second year. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the ARRT national certification exam to become a Registered Radiologic Technologist. All Non-"RADT" courses are open enrollment classes and may be completed prior to entering the program.

The program is accredited by The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (J.R.C.E.R.T), 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182; Phone: 312-704-5304 www.jrcert.org. The program generally follows Washington State Community College's Academic Calendar.
