Radiologic Technology

What is Radiologic Technology?

Sinclair's Radiologic Technology Program prepares you for a career in one of the fastest-evolving areas of health care today. A rewarding profession for those who offer both advanced technical knowledge and human compassion. Technological advancements are consistently introduced which provide exciting opportunities in the field.

Who are Radiographers?

Radiographers are radiologic technologists who specialize in medical imaging.  Advanced technical knowledge and human compassion are the most important features of registered radiographers. They specialize in medical imaging by providing patient care in routine and special procedures performed to diagnose, prevent, and treat disease. Radiographers often assist radiologists and other physicians in the delivery of health care services in medical imaging and other related departments. Radiation protection practices of the radiographer provide for safe radiation environments.

Why major in Radiologic Technology?

Our graduates find employment in a variety of in-demand positions across the United States. From hospitals to private offices, equipment manufacturers to education and imaging centers to research centers, our graduates will be prepared to enter any position confidently and competently.

This area of study might be for you if:

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 program is designed to be completed in five (5) semesters on a full-time basis when the student begins the technical portion of the program. The degree program consists of open enrollment courses (general education and division specific) and program specific courses with limited enrollment. The open enrollment courses may be taken prior to entry into the limited enrollment courses. To qualify for entry to limited enrollment courses, please see the Applicant Information packet located on the webpage. Completion of prerequisites and a cumulative GPA of 2.5 is required, as well as a grade of C or higher is required in all program courses.
