The Radiologic Technologist Training Program at Cambridge College of Healthcare & Technology is a two-year program designed to prepare students for successful careers in the radiology field. The curriculum offers students the knowledge and skills needed to pursue entry-level work as Radiologic Technologists. 

Each course in the program has been carefully designed to adhere to the guidelines of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

The program covers a wide range of subject matter, including:

  • English 
  • Algebra
  • Anatomy and physiology
  • Health science
  • Medical terminology
  • Psychology
  • Radiologic science
  • Image production
  • Radiographic physics

In addition to providing a diverse knowledge base, the Radiologic Technologist Training Program also prepares students to sit for and pass the certification examinations needed to pursue careers in the field. 

Learn in the Classroom, Online & in the Field

Throughout the Radiologic Technologist Training Program, students are offered a number of learning opportunities, including:

  • Classroom instruction: Throughout the program, classroom instruction is provided by highly-qualified medical professionals with experience in the radiology field. By learning from people who know the field first-hand, students are better prepared for the transition from classroom to career. 
  • Online coursework: Several of the program’s courses are offered via online distance learning. The break from the classroom allows students to continue earning credits while also balancing work, family and personal life. 
  • Hands-on training: Our technology training labs offer students hands-on access to the industry current radiology equipment. During the program, students train and learn using the equipment they will use throughout their careers. 
  • Externships: Cambridge maintains an externship partnership with many of the Orlando area’s leading medical facilities. During the mandatory externships, students are exposed to real-world radiology environments, challenges and procedures. The experience and networking relationships gained during these externships is crucial to future career success.
