Diagnostic Medical Imaging
A Career in Medical Imaging
The nationally accredited Diagnostic Medical Imaging Program is challenging, rewarding and an experience like no other. The Program curriculum prepares students to become clinically competent, entry-level Radiologic Technologists with a combination of classroom, laboratory, and supervised clinical education experiences. Students learn how to operate imaging equipment, communicate with patients, properly position body parts, select appropriate exposure factors, and obtain diagnostic quality images. Additionally, students will learn the ethical and legal aspects of the Medical Imaging field and the professional standards required for a successful career. Throughout the duration of the Program, students will complete all educational and clinical requirements for Radiography certification and registration in accordance with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
Students are encouraged to become members of national, state and local Medical Imaging organizations such as:
- American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT)
- Pennsylvania Society of Radiologic Technologists (PSRT)
- Philadelphia Society of Radiologic Technologists (PhilaSRT)
- Aunt Minnie
Membership benefits of these organizations include opportunities for mentoring, scholarships, continuing education and professional networking.
