Take a Look Inside… Become a Radiologic Technologist
Radiologic Sciences is one of the fastest-evolving areas of heath care today. High tech imaging methods employed in the radiologic sciences include x-radiation (x-rays), magnetic energy, and sonographic energy. The largest component of radiologic sciences is Diagnostic Medical Imaging, which involves the production of images used to diagnose medical conditions, injuries, etc. by a professional called a Radiologic Technologist, or Radiographer. At Sinclair Community College, the Radiologic Technology Program prepares you to successfully work in this technologically-advanced field by developing your skills in communication, diversity, scientific inquiry, critical thinking and judgment.

Short-term Technical Certificate
Special Medical Imaging
The short term certificate in special medical imaging is designed to provide radiographers certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) with didactic and clinical education in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Mammography. Didactic courses focus on current CT, MRI and Mammography principles while clinical courses provide students with real-life experience and development of hands-on skills needed to pursue employment opportunities in CT, MRI and Mammography.

Associate of Applied Science - Radiologic Technology
As a specialized discipline within the radiologic science profession, radiographers perform medical imaging procedures to aid the physician in the diagnosis and treatment of injury and disease. Graduates will be eligible to apply for the national credentialing examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Successful completion of the ARRT credentialing examination simultaneously satisfies the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) Radiologic Licensure Program requirements.
The Radiologic Technology (RAT) program consists of five (5) semesters once accepted to the technical curriculum. Acceptance occurs only after completing the required program prerequisite courses and other published admission requirements. Required general education courses may be completed prior to acceptance into the RAT technical curriculum. Students choosing to complete all general education courses prior to beginning the first technical term in the Radiologic Technology program may have less than the number of credit hours required for full-time student status.
After college application has been completed, students should schedule an appointment to meet with an academic counselor by calling 937-512-3700 or in person in building 11, Room 11346. To be eligible for admission to the Radiologic Technology program all admission requirements and course prerequisites must be completed by the June 1 deadline. A 2.5 grade point average is required for acceptance, in addition to completion of all prerequisite courses with a grade of C or better. All general education and RAT technical courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. For additional details regarding program admission please see the online Radiologic Technology packet.
