If you've ever had an x-ray, you've probably met a radiologic technologist. Radiographers use x-ray equipment to produce 2-D and 3-D images of the body's tissue, organs, bones, and vessels. Some radiographers specialize in computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), mammography, ultrasound, nuclear medicine, or interventional.

A career in radiologic technology can lead in many directions. Radiologic technologists are needed in every healthcare setting. You could work in a large hospital, a suburban outpatient clinic, or a rural physician's office. You could specialize in dozens of clinical areas, from prenatal care to orthopedics. You could manage an entire radiology department, including its budget and personnel. You could teach, inspire new generations of radiologic technologists, or perform research that leads to breakthroughs in diagnostic imaging.

The AAS Radiography Program offers a comprehensive 18-month curriculum that prepares students for their American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) registration/certification exam and entry-level radiologic technology positions. Many students begin working as student technologists during their fourth and fifth semesters at hospitals and urgent care centers. 

In addition, the Program offers continuing education to students and registered technologists in the fields of CT, MRI, and Mammography. Please see the Program's advanced modalities post-primary certification page for more information.

Accreditation

The Jefferson College Radiologic Technology Program is an accredited program through the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a recognized accredited program by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

The most recent JRCERT accreditation letter was sent on 4/25/2024. The Program was placed on probation. The Committee based this decision on the expiration of the maximum compliance timeframe allowed to document compliance with all accreditation standards. As required by the USDE and consistent with JRCERT Policy 11.400, the program was to have documented compliance with the Standards by July 22, 2024. Consistent with JRCERT Policy 11.400, the JRCERT Board of Directors has granted a 12-month good cause extension to the program’s compliance timeframe. The board recognizes the change in key program personnel (i.e., program leadership) may have affected the program from documenting compliance with all accreditation standards. The program must now be in compliance with all accreditation standards no later than July 22, 2025.
