The goal of the Radiologic Technology (RDT) program at Oakton is to educate students to produce radiographic images of the human body for use in diagnosing medical conditions. The program is a partnership between the College and the St. Francis School of Radiography in Evanston, Illinois.
Upon satisfactory completion of the two-year program, graduates are qualified to take the national examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Successful completion of the examination certifies the technologist. A “Registered Technologist” in radiography may use the credentials R.T. Beginning in the year 2015, the ARRT will require all radiography students to have achieved at least an Associates degree to be eligible to take the national board examination.
Students must complete 79 semester hours for the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree: 60 RDT credit hours plus 19 general education credits. The 60 RDT semester hours are completed at St. Francis over six consecutive semesters including summer. The program includes both classroom instruction and clinical education. Classroom instruction occurs at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston, IL.
This is a limited enrollment curriculum.
