Radiologic Technology Program
We are now partnering with Southern Illinois University (SIU) to provide our Rad Tech students with a pathway to TWO Bachelor's Degrees:
- Health Care Management B.S. (online course work along with an internship at a healthcare facility)
- Radiological Sciences- Education and Management B.S. (fully online)
These pathways also lead to online Master's Degrees in Health Administration or Radiologic Sciences.
100% of the students graduating in 2015 secured employment in Radiologic Sciences within one year of program completion. Congratulations to the Radiologic Technology Class of 2015!
The course of study in Radiologic Technology at Mt. San Antonio College 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 radiation protection, 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.
