Associate of Applied Science (AAS)
Radiologic Technology through UAA

The Radiologic Technology Program is dedicated to preparing students to become Radiologic Technologists. Radiologic Technologists specialize in producing diagnostic radiographs that demonstrate anatomy on medical X-ray film, fluoroscopic screens, and other electronic imaging devices for purposes of diagnosis.

The program of study incorporates didactic (classroom & laboratory) instruction and clinical application to provided correlation of theory with practice. The students are supervised by faculty and registered technologists during their clinical experience in approved clinical educational centers. The inclusion of general university requirements fulfills the Imaging Program’s goals of developing knowledgeable and competent imaging professionals with opportunities for continued professional growth.

Radiologic Technology Core courses are open only to students accepted and enrolled in the Radiologic Technology Program. Courses must be taken in sequence and prerequisites must be met prior to course enrollment. New students are admitted into the Radiologic Technology Program after completing certain prerequisite courses and after the student has been through the selection and screening process.

Those interested in enrolling in the Radiological Technology program can find more information at the UAA Website.
