Since the radiography program began in 1981, nearly all of our graduates have passed the national certification exam on their first attempts.
Additionally, nearly all of our graduates have found work in their field within six months of graduating.
The mission of the St. Petersburg College Radiography Program is to provide the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that will culminate in successful employment of the graduate as a Registered Technologist in Radiography or RT(R). The program will provide a foundation that will promote life-long learning and prepare students for rewarding careers within the profession.
See JRCERT Program Effectiveness Data for all programs accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.
The full picture of a patient’s health often begins with an x-ray examination or other sophisticated imaging technique. Radiologic technologists use radiation to produce images of the human anatomy, which help diagnose and treat injury and disease. Our program gives you a solid foundation to excel in this field.
Our program prepares you to become a radiologic technologist.
Based on the type of equipment used in your job, you can specialize in general radiography, computed tomography scans (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or mammography. Nationally, employment of radiologic technologists is expected to grow by 28 percent through 2020, faster than the average for all occupations as an increasing aging population experiences more medical conditions, such as fractures.
