Radiologic Technologist

If you are looking for a health care career that works with the latest advances in medical care where you will be a vital part of the patient care team, radiologic technology is a good choice.

Radiologic technologists perform diagnostic imaging examinations on patients. They are responsible for preparing patients for procedures, adjusting and maintaining equipment and working with physicians to get the best images possible to properly evaluate the patient.

Midland College offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology. The program will prepare students for a rewarding career in a health care setting where they help diagnose medical problems by providing optimal images. Graduates of the program are eligible to take the national certification examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Classes include didactic, laboratory and clinical components and meet at the F. Marie Hall Outpatient Center located at 4214 Andrews Highway, Midland, Texas.
