Radiologic Technologic Program at SWOSU Sayre

The Profession

Radiologic Technologists (Radiographers) use imaging equipment to provide patient services as prescribed by physicians. Radiographers use problem-solving and critical-thinking skills to perform medical imaging procedures by adapting variable technical parameters of the procedure to the condition of the patient and by initiating life support procedures as necessary during medical emergencies.

Employment

Radiographers are employed in health care facilities, specialized imaging centers, urgent care clinics, physicians offices and as educators or imaging department administrators. Salaries and benefits are generally competitive with other health professions and vary according to experience and employment location.

Curriculum/Accreditation

The Associate in Applied Science degree for the Radiologic Technologist is offered through the SWOSU Sayre Campus. Following completion of the two year Associate Degree, the student is eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologist Technologist (ARRT) examination which qualifies the graduates as registered Radiologic Technologists in Medical Radiography.
