About the Program

Applications will be accepted for the 2023-2025 program beginning Aug. 1, 2022 through Feb 23, 2023.

The School of Radiologic Technology at Hancock Health is a full-time, 23-month program that trains students to become registered technologists in the field of radiology. Our curriculum includes classroom and clinic time so that students learn to perform diagnostic imaging procedures in a safe, professional manner. Typical imaging procedures in the field of radiologic technology include X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and computed tomography (CT) scans.

The radiology program begins on the first Monday after July 4 of each year. Upon completion of the program, students earn a certificate and become eligible to sit for the national examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Passing the exam earns students R.T.(R)(ARRT) credentials under the authority of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. View course descriptions here.

If you like small class sizes, individual attention, and lots of clinical experience, our School of Radiologic Technology may be right for you. Apply between Aug. 1 and Feb. 23.

VACCINE INFORMATION: Due to clinical site requirements, students accepted to our program are required to provide  full vaccination documentation, including COVID and annual flu vaccine.
