If you're passionate about health care and helping others, and you have an interest in X-rays, CT scans, MRIs or other forms of medical imaging, a major in radiologic technology may be a great fit for you! Demand for radiologic technologists is high and employment opportunities can be found in hospitals, outpatient clinics, diagnostic laboratories, and nursing homes, among other health care settings.
Our radiologic technology major is a two plus two program. Students take classes for two years at WLC, then complete their final two years of classroom and clinical experiences at an affiliate hospital. We are excited to offer our students four affiliate hospital options.
Our closest affiliate hospital is Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin, located directly across the street from our campus. Froedtert is regularly recognized as one of the nation's highest quality academic medical centers. In fact, all of the 2017 radiologic technology graduates from Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin's School of Radiologic Technology had a job offer prior to graduation!
We also have affiliate agreements with Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology, a 24-month, full-time, hospital-based program; School of Radiologic Technology at Ascension All Saints, a 24-month program in a clinical setting that performs over 90,000 general diagnostic X-ray procedures each year; and, School of Radiologic Technology at Ascension St. Joseph.
Many radiologic technologists were historically trained in two-year technical colleges; however, expectations and degree requirements have changed significantly in recent years. Froedtert
& the Medical College of Wisconsin’s School of Radiologic Technology now
only accepts students in a bachelor’s degree granting program. Hospitals and
clinics are now increasingly seeking radiologic technologists with a bachelor’s
degree so that they are better prepared for the complexities of a rapidly
changing health care system.
Our two plus two program provides the best of
both worlds. You'll graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in radiologic
technology, having received a well-rounded Christian education grounded in the
liberal arts while at the same time having received intensive classroom and
clinical training at respected affiliate hospitals leading to certification as a Registered Technologist - Radiographer RT(R).
