Radiologic Technology

Radiologic Technology

Wor-Wic's radiologic technology program is nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. This associate of applied science degree program is designed to prepare graduates for jobs as radiologic technologists. Radiologic technologists use radiation to provide detailed images of the tissues, organs, bones and vessels of the human body, producing quality diagnostic examinations while providing essential patient care services. Radiologic technologists are employed in hospitals, clinics, private offices, industry, civil service, public health facilities and educational institutions. They can pursue careers in computed tomography, angiography, ultrasonography, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance imaging, mammography, cardiac catheterization, management or education.

Students enrolled in this program obtain clinical experiences at Peninsula Regional Medical Center and Peninsula Imaging in Salisbury, as well as at Atlantic General Hospital in Berlin, McCready Health in Crisfield, and Peninsula Orthopaedic Associates in Berlin. Individuals who successfully complete the program can take a certification and licensure examination in radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). State certification as a medical radiologic technologist is required for employment in Maryland.

Wor-Wic also offers an opportunity for a hospital-trained registered radiologic technologist to obtain an associate of applied science degree by successfully completing 35 credit hours of course work and a simulated ARRT examination.

Due to the limited number of spaces available in this program, selection is on a competitive basis. Interested individuals must follow the procedures in the Radiologic Technology Admission Information packetAdobe Portable Document Format (PDF) icon, which is available in the radiologic technology department, in the admissions office or on the college website. In order to be considered for admission into the program that begins in the summer, prospective students must complete the admission requirements by the second Friday in May.

In order to graduate with an associate of applied science degree, students must obtain a grade of "C" or better in all radiologic technology, biology and mathematics courses. Students must also meet all clinical objectives and maintain current cardiopulmonary resuscitation certification while enrolled in the program.

The Mission

The radiologic technology program at Wor-Wic Community College provides students with a comprehensive didactic, laboratory, and clinical education that prepares graduates with the technical expertise for employment in the profession. Graduates from the radiologic technology program will exhibit the professional and personal attributes contributing to the delivery of quality care to patients in our community. The program supports the college’s vision by developing an exceptional workforce through excellence in education.
