Radiologic Technology

What is Radiologic Technology? Radiologic technologists, or radiographers, are key members of the healthcare team who create images used to diagnose patient injury or illness. They use sophisticated equipment to produce radiographic images, or x-rays, of the human body at the request of a physician. With new advances in medical technology and a shortage of healthcare workers, career opportunities abound for radiologic technologists throughout the country. 

HCC offers an A.S. Degree in Radiologic Technology. Students learn in our new Center for Health Education, a facility that features multi-media-equipped classrooms and state-of-the-art technology.

Admission into the program is competitive. For a program overview, information on the admissions process and more, download this information packet. You can also learn more by downloading the information sheets on the right. However, the best way to learn about the program is to come to an information session! Since prospective students are required to attend an information session prior to applying, it makes sense to attend one as early as possible.
