Radiologic Technology Program
One aspect of health care that will continue to be important in the future is radiologic technology. Radiologic technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They are educated in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and basic patient care. They may specialize in areas such as CT (computed tomography) scans, mammography, MRI (magnetic resonance imaging), or general radiography (X-rays).
Carroll University has partnered with Ascension - St. Joseph, Aurora Health Care and Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin to create a 2+2 program for students interested in pursuing a career in radiologic technology. The student's first two years are spent at Carroll University taking general education and prerequisite courses. The last two years are spent in one of the partnering hospitals' school of radiologic technology receiving didactic and clinical training.
The 2+2 program between Carroll University and the partnering hospitals allows students to earn a certificate in radiologic technology and a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences: Radiologic Technology. This B.S. degree gives the radiologic technologist many more career choices than the certificate alone. Interested students should contact Carroll University's 2+2 Health Sciences advisor for more information.
