What's causing pain in the body is often happening beneath the surface. The power of radiography is to see what can't be seen with the naked eye and bring the human body back to health. Observing internal organs and inspecting skeletal structure has never been more fascinating or useful in diagnosing patients, and in our two-year program, you'll learn to provide quality patient care, produce high-quality radiographic images and understand protocols of radiographic procedures in a variety of clinical settings.
The Associate of Science in Radiography degree program prepares you for success in the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) exam, the national certification exam. The average pass rate over the last five years for our graduates is 96%—all with grades scoring higher than the national average.
You will gain a tremendous advantage by completing a job-shadowing experience in a clinical setting by May 1, prior to your August enrollment. Later, you'll spend 14 weeks in practice at our affiliated medical facilities during the summer between your first and second years. Better yet, you'll receive a stipend for your work. Check out the clinics where you'll learn on site.
Champlain's Radiography program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (www.jrcert.org), and through the clinical practicums offered, students work in medical settings with the latest technologies.
You'll spend equal amounts of time in both the classroom and the clinic. By graduation, you will have logged 1,600 clinical hours and created a solid network of professional relationships, having learned the skills necessary to succeed from professors with experience from time spent in the industry. Meet our faculty.
Our Radiography graduates' career success is outstanding: 100% of 2013 Radiography graduates were employed within a year after graduating, and 85% of them were in positions relevant to their career goals. See how our students succeed.
