  • About the Program

    Students will gain a basic understanding of the historical development and role of a radiologic technologist within the healthcare setting, as well as obtain basic knowledge of human anatomy, physiology, basic disease processes, and the essentials of patient care.  This course will also explain the legal, ethical, and professional responsibilities associated with becoming a radiologic technologist, while emphasizing the importance of good communication and critical-thinking skills.  Mastery of the material in this course would provide students with a strong background should they wish to pursue certification in areas such as first aid, CPR, or AED, as well as a Limited Radiology Technologist License.  This class will be held in a Carilion facility and students must provide their own transportation.
