Our program offers each participant a unique opportunity for success and professional satisfaction in this progressive medical specialty. The radiologic technologist, also known as a radiographer, is a health-care professional who administers ionizing radiation (x-rays) to produce anatomic images for diagnostic, therapeutic, and research purposes.
The Radiologic Technology Program is a 21-month program, for which we received the maximum 8-year accreditation status awarded by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) through 2022. The JRCERT is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as the national accreditation agency of programs for the radiographer. Successful completion of the academic work and clinical experience prepares the student for admission to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists certification examination and New York State licensure.
The JRCERT can be contacted in writing at 20 N.Wacker Street Suite 2850 Chicago, IL 60606-3182, by phone at (312) 704-5300, or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
