Diagnostic Medical Imaging
Imaging Your Anatomy
Our Diagnostic Medical Imaging program will teach you how to use radiological equipment and provide X-ray images that doctors use in diagnosing and treating patients. You will learn how to conduct an X-ray study, operate radiation equipment, identify types of conditions seen in X-ray studies, and demonstrate care and sensitivity with patients. As a student of the Diagnostic Medical Imaging program, you will enjoy benefits such as lab training and classroom study, supervised time in hospitals and health care settings, and preparation to take the national test for credentials accepted anywhere in the United States. Graduates of the College’s program regularly have a higher pass rate on the certification exam than national averages.
All 146 graduates of the Diagnostic Medical Imaging program since 2004 have passed the national certification examination on the first attempt for a 100% pass rate. Forty seven graduates actively sought employment in medical imaging in 2009-2013 and 100% are employed. Twenty eight students started the program in July 2011 and 17 of them graduated in June 2013 for a program completion rate of 61%. Additional information can be obtained at www.jrcert.org.
