The first two semesters of the radiologic technology program the general core classes are completed. This is the pre-radiology phase of the program. In the spring of each year the pre-radiology students need to attend an information/application session to get an application form for the program. This is a competitive selection program. The applicant has to have all 8 core classes and the TEAs test completed by the end of spring semester to apply for the program. If an applicant is accepted into the program understand that the program is like a full time+ job. The student is in clinical for 8 hours per day every other day and then in class the days in between. It is a very fast paced, stressful program but very much worth it in the end. The class moves through as a cohort for the next 17 months (4 semesters). Understand that this is a very physical job with lots of lifting pulling and pushing. A radiologic technology student is on their feet 90% of the time.
