Program Description


Radiographers are highly skilled professionals qualified to perform diagnostic imaging procedures and examinations prescribed by licensed medical practitioners. Technologists apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology, positioning, and radiographic techniques to provide quality healthcare services.

Mission/Goals

The mission of the Baker College Radiologic Technology program is to enable qualified students to develop into competent and professional entry-level radiographers who are prepared to successfully sit for the ARRT examination and acquire gainful employment.
