Metro Tech’s Radiologic Technology program is a two-year full-time certificate program for adult students who desire to learn imaging procedures with radiation. Students are instructed in theory and application in the classroom and laboratory located at Metro Tech. They receive extensive clinical experience at several sites in the greater Oklahoma City and outlying areas. Graduates are prepared for entry-level employment in the imaging areas of routine diagnostic procedures, fluoroscopy, surgery, portables, and trauma. They have observed or participated in the post-primary areas of computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, cardiac-interventional and vascular-interventional procedures. They have also been introduced to ultrasound procedures in the classroom.
The program is competency-based and follows the American Society of Radiologic Technologists curriculum guide, and, that established by the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education. Graduates are eligible to take the Radiography certification exam offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (A.R.R.T.). A.R.R.T. certification, or exam eligibility, is the standard for entry-level employment in most hospitals and medical facilities throughout the United States.
Metro Tech's Radiologic Technology Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, the national accrediting agency for radiography programs. The accreditation process has been developed to ensure radiography programs follow education standards that promote academic excellence. A copy of the “Standards for an Accredited Educational Program In Radiologic Sciences” is available for review near the bulletin board in the classroom. Questions regarding accreditation matters may be directed to the:
