For more than 11 years Johnson College has offered a two-year associate degree program in Radiologic Technology. Radiologic Technologists are the medical professionals who perform diagnostic medical imaging examinations, including X-rays. Now Johnson College provides the opportunity for any radiographer, both locally and nationwide, the ability to take the next step in their career to increase their marketability and earning potential.
“This program allows current registered technologists to become CT or MRI technologists upon completion of the nine-month program,” says Joan Bonczek, Program Director for Johnson College’s Radiologic Technology program. “It’s a two pronged process. You have to complete the sequential online modules, along with completing the required clinician competency portion at a hospital or outpatient clinic where you are located.” Once these two steps are complete, students are then prepared to take their board certification tests.”
Carolyn Roth, CEO of Imaging Education Associates, has created each instructional video along with the related ASRT approved course testing.
Students who have already taken the course have enjoyed the way the program is structured, “The online modules are excellent and aligned well with my clinicals, and I was well prepared for the CT Boards which I passed with flying colors,” says Edna Bradley of Thornhurst. “The classes were so convenient, being able to watch and learn at my own pace was ideal,” adds Corrie Geyer from Bear Creek. She says having Johnson College faculty support the program makes a big difference, “any issues or concerns that I had with the online program were immediately resolved as soon as I asked.” Corrie says, “Now I have not only a new job but a new career.”
