Radiologic Technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. At the completion of the Radiologic Technologies clinical training program, students will be prepared for a career as an X-ray technologist. Students who are interested, can pursue additional training opportunities to specialize in a specific area of radiologic technology, such as computed tomography, mammography, magnetic resonance imaging, medical dosimetry, nuclear medicine or diagnostic radiography.

Radiologic Technologists perform a variety of diagnostic and therapeutic services within the healthcare industry and may find employment in hospitals, clinics, and imaging centers. All programs prepare students to perform traditional X-rays, and some may also prepare students to perform bone densitometry and inject contrast media. Additional post-certificate training is required for more advanced imaging technologies such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computed tomography (CT) scans.

A bachelor of science in Radiologic Technology requires students to complete 96 credits at Fairleigh Dickinson University prior to enrollment and successful completion of an accredited JRCERT (Joint Review Committee in Education in Radiologic Technology) hospital certificate program. These programs are listed below and are independent of Fairleigh Dickinson University, and there is no automatic or guaranteed acceptance.

Students in this program are required to maintain a 2.33 GPA in all the major classes.

Upon acceptance into the clinical training program, students will be required to arrange transportation and housing for the clinical site, in addition to tuition. Financial aid is not available through FDU for students at clinical training locations. Radiologic Technology clinical training, including a large proportion of hands-on training, is a two-year commitment. Refer to the JRCERT program of your choice for more information.
