What You Need to Know

You can apply to undergraduate radiology technology programs at several Pennsylvania schools. Associate's degree programs take about two years to complete and are offered through 2-year community colleges; at some schools, space may be limited so admission can be competitive. These programs prepare students through classroom work, labs and clinicals for entry level radiology jobs as radiology technologists. Students will want to look for programs accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. Graduates are typically prepared to take the professional certification exam required for employment.

If you already have an undergraduate degree and have completed medical school, you could also apply to a radiology residency or fellowship program from one of several PA universities.
