Radiologic (“X-ray”) Technologists are the medical personnel who perform diagnostic imaging examinations. Radiologic Technologists provide services in hospitals, clinics, and imaging centers. At the completion of the Radiologic Technologies clinical training program, students will be prepared for a career as a Radiologic Technologist. All programs prepare students to carry out traditional X-ray imaging, and some also prepare students to perform bone densitometry and inject contrast media. Graduates can also pursue additional post-graduate training to obtain a specialization certificate, such as for computed tomography (CT), mammography, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), medical dosimetry, nuclear medicine, or diagnostic radiography.

The BS in Allied Health Technology/Radiologic Technology Concentration is a five-year Bachelor of Science degree program. The “3 + 2” program requires that students complete 96 credits at FDU (approximately 3 years), and then enroll and successfully complete an accredited Joint Review Committee in Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) hospital certificate program. JRCERT clinical training, including a large proportion of hands-on experience, is a two-year commitment. Students report that this five-year program length gives them the confidence and allows them time to achieve the academic competencies to be successful in their careers. 

Many JRCERT options are available to FDU students through our numerous articulation agreements (see list below). JRCERT programs are independent of FDU (i.e., requires separate application/acceptance is not guaranteed by FDU). Tuition is paid directly to the JRCERT program during this phase of study.  Financial aid is also not available through FDU when attending the JRCERT program, however many JRCERT programs offer their own financial aid. Students must maintain a 2.33 GPA in major classes to be eligible to apply to a JRCERT program. Please refer to the JRCERT program of interest for more information.
