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 the Milwaukee area Radiology Alliance to create a 2+2 program for students interested in pursuing a career in radiologic technology. The student's first two years will be spent at Carroll University taking Liberal Studies Program, General Education and prerequisite courses. The last two years would be spent in one of the Radiology Alliance schools of radiologic technology.
The 2+2 program between Carroll University and the Radiology Alliance 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 adviser for more information.
