The ECC Radiography program is a five-semester program that prepares the graduate to be a radiographer, a skilled health care imaging professional who uses ionizing radiation to produce images of the human body. The ECC Radiography Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
Course work includes clinical rotations to area health care facilities, radiographic exposure, image processing, radiographic procedures, physics, pathology, patient care and management, radiation protection, quality assurance, anatomy and physiology, and radiobiology.
Graduates of JRCERT accredited programs are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists’ (ARRT) national certification examination. Upon receipt of a passing score, the graduate is granted the right and respect to be registered as a Registered Radiologic Technologist R.T.(R). Radiographers may secure employment in hospitals, clinics, physicians’ offices, medical laboratories, government agencies, and industry.
In all health science curricula, students are assigned clinical rotations with area health care agencies. Prior to or at any time after admission, the health sciences student may be required to submit to a criminal background check and/or drug screen.
