Pre-Radiologic Technology Qualifications

Prepares students to apply to most professional medical imaging programs. Includes a base in the university GER options and includes all pre-requisites needed for application to the UAA Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degrees in Radiologic Technology program. Completion of the certificate does not guarantee acceptance into a medical imaging program. Students need to consult with a Health Sciences advisor before registering for courses.

Certificate Requirements

Requires at least 9 classes, yielding a minimum of 30 credits of which 19 are GERs. At least 9 credits must be taken at UAS. A minimum grade of C (2.00) is required in all courses.

Certificates are programs of study designed to prepare students to secure entry-level employment in their chosen field.

Typically a certificate is 30 credits (one year).

Radiologic Technology through UAA

The Radiologic Technology Program is dedicated to preparing students to become Radiologic Technologists. Radiologic Technologists specialize in producing diagnostic radiographs that demonstrate anatomy on medical X-ray film, fluoroscopic screens, and other electronic imaging devices for purposes of diagnosis.

The program of study incorporates didactic (classroom & laboratory) instruction and clinical application to provided correlation of theory with practice. The students are supervised by faculty and registered technologists during their clinical experience in approved clinical educational centers. The inclusion of general university requirements fulfills the Imaging Program’s goals of developing knowledgeable and competent imaging professionals with opportunities for continued professional growth.

Radiologic Technology Core courses are open only to students accepted and enrolled in the Radiologic Technology Program. Courses must be taken in sequence and prerequisites must be met prior to course enrollment. New students are admitted into the Radiologic Technology Program after completing certain prerequisite courses and after the student has been through the selection and screening process.

Those interested in enrolling in the Radiological Technology program can find more information at the UAA Website.
