Concordia College Announces New Bachelor of Science in Radiologic TechnologIes
Concordia College will launch a new Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Technologies beginning this Fall. Graduates of the program will be eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) National Certification Examination.
Employment data projections reveal strong growth potential for Radiologic Technologists, beginning with a median starting salary of $55,910, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The job outlook for Radiologic and MRI Technologists is growing faster than average, projected at 21% by 2022, with over 48,000 new jobs projected to be added during that period.
Dr. Molinda Kearns, Health Studies Program Chair at Concordia College, adds, “We are excited to introduce the Radiologic Technologies Program to our academic offerings. It will bring a unique and desirable option to our students. The fact that this program is bachelor degree-awarding means students will leave with technical knowledge and patient care experience to provide career opportunities upon graduation as hospital and outpatient care facility administrators.”
Radiologic technology is the art and science of utilizing radiation to produce diagnostic images of the tissues, bones, organs and vessels of the body to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of disease. Images may be recorded on film or viewed digitally on a video monitor. The radiographer is an essential member of the health care team and is responsible for producing high quality diagnostic images through accurate positioning, radiation protection and quality patient care.
