Radiologic Technology

The Radiologic Technology program consists of general studies, radiologic courses, and clinical experiences that prepare you to be a radiologic technologist. A technologist's primary function is to provide high quality diagnostic radiographs utilizing advanced medical imaging equipment. You will operate diagnostic imaging equipment, position patients for diagnostic imaging, and assist physicians. More than half of your education will be provided in hospital or clinic radiology departments to assure hands–on experience. After graduation, you will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technology Examination, and be prepared to find a job in a hospital, clinic, private physician's office, educational institution, or other health–related industry.

I now use the things I learned at Indian Hills on a daily basis. How often do graduates of other schools get to say that? The courses were excellent and well taught by instructors who were second to none.
