About the Program
SFCC’s Radiologic Technology program blends high-tech training with compassionate care while students gain the skills required to become an entry-level radiologic technologist. Students prepare to meet the health care needs of the community by functioning as a radiologic technologist in hospitals, clinics, doctors’ offices, and in similar health delivery agencies. Students mix classroom time with time spent in the clinical setting working and training with technologists in the field. The didactic (classroom) phase will incorporate the formal education process along with laboratory and clinical experiences giving the student a hands-on approach to learning while applying the knowledge to practical experience.
SFCC’s Radiologic Technology program prepares students to become knowledgeable, competent, effective, and ethical radiologic technologists consistent with the practice of radiation safety, communication, critical thinking, and professionalism required to meet community and employer expectations of registered radiologic technologists, RT (R).
Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be eligible to take the examination for National Registration through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Passing the National Registry Exam will earn the student certification as a Registered Technologist in Radiography, RT (R). Becoming certified by the ARRT also fulfills the State of New Mexico requirements for state licensure.
