Radiologic Technology

Why PCC?

The PCC Radiologic Technology faculty has more 70 years of combined experience in the field. Our faculty members are trained teachers with program expertise and all faculty and instructors are registered through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Some faculty members have additional registries in the areas of mammography, bone densitometry and quality control.
 
The energized lab on the Pueblo campus has the same current technology that is being used in the field. You will be trained on a computed radiography system that will prepare you for your clinical internships and career in radiography.

PCC's Radiologic Technology BAS Degree Completion Program is one of only two medical imaging bachelor’s programs in Colorado.

What will I learn?

The Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology prepares you to work as a critical member of today's health care team. We teach you important critical thinking and problem-solving techniques as well as interpersonal and communication skills. This training will allow you to interact effectively with other health care team members, patients and families from a variety of professional, social, emotional, cultural and intellectual backgrounds.

We provide you the skills you need to work with highly complex medical imaging equipment, analyze acquired images for quality, assess patient condition and apply appropriate techniques of patient care and education, and achieve the highest degree of clinical competency. Our program focuses on developing your intellectual abilities as well as the judgment you need to demonstrate a professional attitude and demeanor, display the highest moral and ethical standards, and foster the safety of yourself and your patients.

PCC’s bachelor’s degree completion program in Radiologic Technology is designed to provide education in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) as well as leadership and education in medical imaging. Many employers are seeking graduates with a bachelor’s degree and at least one additional imaging modality; this program helps you prepare for these requirements. The program is mostly online with face-to-face clinical education for MRI and CT. Graduates will be prepared to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) post-primary certification in either MRI or CT. 

For this program, you will need access to a computer with broadband internet that can stream video and audio. Your course may also require hardware such as a headset with microphone. Technical support is available for all courses.

Eligibility requirements for the BAS program: 

  • Graduate of a regionally accredited radiologic technology program
  • Passed primary certification exam in radiography from American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT)
  • Apply to the program by June 1
 

Marijuana Policy

THC (marijuana) is part of the required 10-panel drug screen prior to admittance into any Health Professions or Public Safety program at PCC. The passage of Amendment 64 in the State of Colorado, does not overrule Federal law, which states this is still an illegal substance. Students testing positive for THC (marijuana, including prescription marijuana) will not be allowed entrance or re-entrance into a Health or Public Safety program.
