Concordia’s New Associate-to-Bachelor Program in Radiologic Technologies Can Help Rad Techs Advance Their Careers

Beginning in Fall 2018, Concordia College New York will begin offering graduates of 2-year radiologic technology programs the opportunity to complete their bachelor’s degree in Radiologic Technologies at Concordia. Additionally, these students can be fast-tracked for Concordia’s master’s degree in Business Leadership.  

Concordia’s 4-year baccalaureate degree in Radiologic Technologies has long provided excellent preparation for management positions in the field, whether in imaging offices, clinics, hospitals or large medical facilities. Now rad techs who have already earned an associate’s degree will have access to the opportunities a 4-year degree brings in this growing field, including work in any of the various imaging arts, specializing in a particular application, educating future radiologic technologists, or even contributing to industry textbooks and test preparation materials. With the addition of an MS in Business Leadership (which can be completed in a year), graduates will be further prepared for leadership and entrepreneurial roles in the field. 

DorothyAnn Saia, MA, RT(R)(M), is Adjunct Professor in Concordia’s Radiologic Technologies program. She is Editor-In-Chief of McGraw-Hill Education’s RadReview, the flagship prep tool for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) National Certification Examination, and has written and edited several books on the subject. 

“Graduates of a 4-year program are better prepared for expanded roles in the field,” said Professor Saia. “The baccalaureate degree curriculum helps develop the required communication skills for higher-level positions. This more rounded approach to the subject provides many opportunities for students to grow both personally and professionally.”
