ANNOUNCEMENTS

*NEW* 2015 RADT Admission Requirements:  Medical Terminology will be a required prerequisite for 2015 applications.  The deadline for 2015 applications is March 1st (or last business day prior), so get into a Medical Terminology class soon!  The new Information/Application packet for 2015 will be posted by August 1st.

*NEW* Required RADT Summer Class: Starting in 2015, all students who receive acceptance into the program must enroll in and successfully pass the Summer RADT 050 (Concepts in Imaging Technology) class, in order to proceed with the 24-month program.

*Fluoroscopy Class for Technologists: We are no longer offering the full (55 hour) fluoroscopy class, since technologists who are ARRT (R) registered are eligible to take the CA state fluoroscopy exam without any additional education.  We will develop a Fluoroscopy Review class for those who need a refresher in order to prepare for the state fluoroscopy exam.

*Fluoroscopy Class for Physician Assistants: We are in the process of finalizing our ability to offer a full fluoroscopy class (40 hours didactic + 40 hours clinical training) for Physician Assistants.  Certain restrictions will apply. PA's must already have priviledges at one of our hospital affiliates.  Contact the Program Director for more information.

The Radiologic Technology (RADT) program is a 24-month long program that prepares and qualifies graduates to become nationally registered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT; www.arrt.org).  Didactic, laboratory and clinical training includes operation of general and fluoroscopic radiographic equipment, exposing and processing images, radiation safety, positioning patients, ethics and clinical patient care.  Graduates will have obtained California fluoroscopic and venipuncture training within the program.  Starting in 2015, all ARRT candidates must possess an associate degree or higher (in any field or area), in addition to the successful completion of the 24-month program, in order to be eligible to sit for the ARRT exam.  Currently, the admissions selection process is lottery based.  For more information, be sure to carefully read the Information/Application packet and Frequently Asked Questions, provided in the side links.
