The Radiologic Engineering Programme prepares the student to exist a radiographer: a skilled healthcare professional that uses radiations to produce images of the human trunk.
An Acquaintance of Engineering in Radiologic Applied science degree will be awarded to students who have successfully completed 83 credit hours of coursework. This includes 32 hours of general didactics credits and 51 radiography credits. The degree program is designed to be completed in five semesters, 20 month time-frame of full-time study.
The AAS Radiologic Technology degree is a terminal caste. This ways that information technology is the highest academic degree needed to secure employment in the field. The AAS Radiologic Technology degree does not guarantee total assimilation into a Bachelor of Science in Radiography, Health Sciences or a like field. Additional credits, outside of the AAS, may be required to meet the admission criteria of the receiving institution.
Graduates of the program are eligible to employ to take the American Registry of Radiographic Technologists’ National examination (ARRT) for certification and registration. First in 2015, students who do not have an acquaintance’s, bachelor’s or other degree must earn ane prior to taking the ARRT. Graduates of the programme are employed in hospitals, clinics, physician’s offices, medical laboratories, government agencies and manufacture.
Clinical Didactics Requirements
Students volition exist completing clinical experiences at several clinical sites within a 50 mile radius of Southside Higher of Health Sciences. Students are responsible for transportation to and from each site. Clinical hours tin be scheduled for 6 to 10 hours a day, Mon through Friday between the hours of 7 am and 11 pm. Students that are geographically dispersed have an opportunity to attend clinical rotations in South Colina or Franklin, Virginia. Students will be required to submit health documents and records, CPR course completion, urine drug screen, and criminal background check. A full listing of requirements is bachelor here. * All data regarding clinical hours, locations or days are subject to modify with notification.

Plan Effectiveness Data
The following is the well-nigh electric current program effectiveness data. Our programmatic accreditation bureau, the Joint Review Commission on Instruction in Radiologic Engineering (JRCERT), defines and publishes this information. Click here to go direct to the JRCERT webpage.
Credentialing Test: The number of students who laissez passer, on the first attempt, the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination, or an unrestricted land licensing examination, compared with the number of graduates who have the examination inside half dozen months of graduation. The 5-year average benchmark established by the JRCERT is 75%.
|Credentialing Examination Rate||Number passed on 1st attempt divided by number attempted within vi months of graduation|
|Year 1 – 2017||12 of 12 – 100%|
|Year two – 2018||xiv of 16 – 88%|
|Year three – 2019||fourteen of fourteen – 100%|
|Year four – 2020||13 of xiii – 100%|
|Year 5 – 2021||15 of 16 – 94%|
|Program 5-year Average||68 of 71 – 95.viii%|
Job Placement: The number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences within twelve months of graduating. The five-twelvemonth average benchmark established past the JRCERT is 75%.
|Task Placement Rate||Number employed divided by number actively seeking employment within 12 months of graduation|
|Year 1 – 2017||x of 12 – 83%|
|Year 2 – 2018||sixteen of 16 – 100%|
|Year 3 – 2019||14 of 14 – 100%|
|Year 4 – 2020||13 of 13 – 100%|
|Year 5 – 2021||16 of 16 – 100%|
|Program five-Year Average||69 of 71 – 97.2%|
*The number of graduates employed may differ from the number of graduates because graduates may not be actively seeking employment. The JRCERT has defined not actively seeking employment equally: 1) graduate fails to communicate with plan officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts, 2) graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation, iii) graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, 4) graduate is on agile military machine duty, and/or v) graduate is continuing education.
Program Completion: The number of students who complete the program within the stated program length. The annual benchmark established by the programme is 75%.
|Program Completion Rate||Number graduated divided by number started the program|
|Yr 1 – 2021||16 of 17|
|Annual Completion Rate||94.1%|
