Are you a registered radiologic technologist looking to advance your career?
At Oregon Tech, registered radiologic technologists have two online degree options to advance their careers.
- Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Science - integrates credits granted for registry with coursework in MRI, CT, Mammography, and CIT with business applications and a general education core
- Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management - integrates credits granted for registry with coursework in management and a general education core
Once you are admitted to the radiology program, our staff will conduct a transfer evaluation of your prior coursework to see which classes are applicable toward your bachelor’s degree. After the evaluation is complete, we will contact you with an advising guide showing your transfer credits, registry credits, and future classes needed for completion. You may view the curriculum, including courses granted for registry, under Curriculum - Radiologic Science and under Curriculum - Health Care Management.
Who is Eligible?
- You must be a Registered Radiologic Technologist through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
- You must be employed in or have access to a full-service, properly equipped radiology laboratory to complete the clinical didactic courses and be eligible for clinical externship credit.**
- You must meet the Oregon Tech admissions criteria. Special admissions arrangements are also available.
**Please note: The Radiologic Science Degree Completion Program is built around a core of courses in the advanced modalities of CT, MRI, Cardiovascular Interventional Technology, and/or Mammography. These courses are intended to provide the two-year college or hospital trained technologist with knowledge and limited but practical experience in the advanced modalities. They are followed by the 15 credit clinical "externship." This in-depth experience is completed in a modality or modalities of the student's choice, to facilitate changing to or supervising in these areas, and as a stepping-stone to promotion.
The courses have a lab requirement, and the externship is 95% clinical practice. Prospective students need to know that an imaging site will be available and cooperative to fulfill the clinical requirements. Experience has shown that most facilities are anxious to contribute to the continuing education of technologists, especially those they employ, but occasionally a student may have difficulty securing cooperation, usually due to legal or HIPAA concerns. It is important to assure the availability and cooperation of a clinical site before applying to the program.
