A Radiologic Technologist is a person trained in the “art and science” of creating images of the human body using ionizing radiation. The radiologic technologist works closely with the radiology doctor (radiologist) and other physicians, and plays a vital role as a professional member of the total medical team. Technologists work in hospitals’ general radiography, surgery, trauma, pediatrics, clinics, doctors’ offices, CT, mammography, and imaging centers. This exciting and dynamic field is perpetually are in a constant state of development. Imaging’s continued growth and development is dependent on highly qualified and well-trained radiologic technologists.
We, at Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts, consider clinical experience one of the most important parts of the medical education. Students are required to be rotated throughout our affiliated medical facilities, while attending our radiology technology school.
