Graduates of this program, upon successfully completing the registry examination of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), are prepared for positions in medical facilities, government, public health and education. The Radiologic Technology program at GRCC is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. The employment outlook continues to be very favorable for radiologic technologists.
Clinical practicums associated with GRCC’s program have been established within a 50-mile radius of Grand Rapids. These practical experiences seek to heighten students’ awareness of patient communication practices and to acquaint them with all phases of radiologic technology practice, which often varies from hospital to hospital. The personal contacts developed during clinical experiences often help students in securing jobs after graduation.
The Radiologic Technology program is a two-year program and requires attendance for four semesters and three summer sessions.
