Radiologic Technology

The Belmont College Radiology Program is new; however, it is the former Ohio Valley Medical Center Program of Radiologic Technology, which was known for its program excellence from its inception in 1954. Graduates have had a 100% pass rate on the national board exam for over 20 years. Belmont College and program faculty are determined to carry on this achievement.
 

Upon completion of all program requirements, the student will receive an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Radiologic Technology.
 

The program’s mission is dedicated to providing learning experiences that will enable each student to deliver quality health care, to understand the values and behavior of the profession, and to develop communication and independent reasoning in preparation for employment as entry level radiographers.
 

The Belmont College Radiology Program is nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and have received an 8-year accreditation award, which is the maximum offered.
 
A radiologic technologist is a health care professional who performs medical imaging to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of disease and injury. A thorough understanding of anatomy, physiology, positioning, imaging principles, equipment protocols, radiation protection and patient care must be mastered in order to demonstrate images of anatomic structures, such as organs, vessels and bones.
