RadTechs continue to be in high demand! When you graduate with your Radiologic Technology Associate Degree, and successfully complete the registry examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), you will qualify for entry level positions in hospitals, clinics and private offices.
GRCC RadTech graduates are prepared for a career in diagnostic medical imaging as a registry-eligible radiographer, with skills in:
- Critical thinking.
- Radiation safety.
- Patient care.
This two-year program requires attendance for six semesters including two summer sessions. The practical experiences you will have in off-site clinic will heighten your awareness of patient communication practices and acquaint you with all phases of radiologic technology practice, which often varies from hospital to hospital. The personal contacts you develop will often help you in your job search after graduation.
