The Radiologic Technology program at Mitchell Technical College is a 21-month program, Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree. The program provides comprehensive training in radiologic technology. Radiologic Technologists work in professional environments such as hospitals, medical clinics, and private medical offices.
The Radiologic Technology program utilizes didactic, laboratory, and clinical education to prepare students to work as radiologic technologists. The didactic, or classroom portion, teaches the student the fundamental principles of x-ray production, radiographic positioning skills, radiographic anatomy, imaging equipment, radiographic pathology, patient care, and radiation safety. The clinical portion allows the student to gain practical experience in real-life situations. Students will attend courses on MTC’s campus the first two semesters of the program. For the subsequent three semesters, the student will be assigned to clinical rotations, including evening and weekend rotations, in various locations in South Dakota. This requires students to relocate to the area of their clinical assignment at their own expense. Students will also complete online courses during their clinical semesters and will infrequently return to campus for various learning activities.
Graduates of the program will pursue employment opportunities in radiology or diagnostic imaging departments.
