Radiologic Technology, AAS
Mid-Plains Community College in conjunction with Southeast Community College offers the Radiologic Technology program. The program prepares students for careers in performing diagnostic imaging procedures. It teaches the use of radiation to produce images of the human body for diagnostic purposes. An integral part of the program is supervised clinical practice at health care facilities.
Program graduates earn an associate of applied science degree and become eligible to take the national examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and earn the designation, R.T.(R) (ARRT).
Radiologic technologists will find employment in hospitals and health care facilities.
Graduates may continue their education toward a baccalaureate degree in Radiologic Technology at several colleges which grant transfer credit. These institutions provide additional training in specialties, such as nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, sonography and related modalities. Check with four-year college of choice for information on transfer requirements and courses.
The radiologic technology program through Southeast Community College accepts one new class each year. The class starts each year in the summer quarter (July). For admission to a health program, all students must receive a cumulative GPA of 2.75 in the science courses and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 in the general education courses.
- Human Anatomy and Physiology I w/lab (BIOS 2250)
- Human Anatomy and Physiology II w/lab (BIOS 2260)
- Descriptive Physics w/lab (PHYS 1150)
- Intermediate Algebra (MATH 1010) or higher
