Radiologic imaging is often the first step in identifying, diagnosing and treating many diseases and is an increasingly common part of many medical procedures and regimens. Performing diagnostic imaging procedures requires the training, skill and experience to fully understand the technical standards of the radiologic sciences and provide quality healthcare. This is a limited enrollment program.
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.
The mission of the Baker College radiologic technology degree 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. We believe that this is done through exercises in critical thinking, varied clinical experience, the encouragement of universally responsible behavior and foundations in guiding radiologic principles.
The Baker College Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology degree program is a two-year, JRCERT-accredited program consisting of 71 credit hours (28 prerequisites and 43 major requirements). Our curriculum includes patient care and assessment, clinical experiences and a radiologic capstone.
I chose Baker because they had such a detailed, laid-out plan for me. It got me working as a nurse, and their goal is to see everyone off and working. Baker faculty are very prepared professionals. I felt like they set me up for success.
