The program highly recommends that applicants work or volunteer in a healthcare setting to familiarize themselves with various patient situations. This experience may provide valuable insight to the applicant. Without this experience the applicant may be unaware of certain aspects of working in healthcare and patient interactions.
The course of study in Radiologic Technology offered at Mt. SAC and its affiliated hospitals is designed to train students in the diagnostic uses of x-ray as well as the technical skills to use x-ray equipment in both the laboratory and clinical settings. Students learn to operate x-ray equipment, assist physicians in the diagnosis of disease, and to apply proper medical ethics. Students will also learn the nature of radiation, the principles of electricity, the structure of x-ray machines, and the operation of a clinical x-ray department.
Students who complete a total of four (4) regular semesters, two (2) winter, and three (3) summer intersessions of preparation at the College and its affiliated hospitals are eligible to apply for the registry examination through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, and the California Certification of Radiologic Technology with the Department of Public Health.
