The need for Radiologic Technologists is expected to increase over the next 10 years with an average entry-level wage of $30 per hour nationwide. Graduates can add to their skills with post-primary certification in other diagnostic imaging modalities such as CT, MRI, and mammography.
This full-time program consists of academic courses and internships that are taken throughout the 22-month program. Students will work with state-of-the-art equipment in multiple radiology departments in northeast Colorado, as well as older technologies to become a well-rounded professional.
