Computerized Axial Tomography - Certificate
This advanced certificate program will provide trained and knowledgeable, entry-level CT technologists to meet the needs of the medical community. Students currently certified in Radiologic Technology will have the opportunity to advance their education in a post-secondary modality.
Applicants to the Computerized Axial Tomography program should be aware a current, unrestricted license or certification may be required to practice in the state in which you intend to reside/practice. Each state is unique in its licensure requirements. Students are encouraged to reach out to the program chair for more information and assistance with understanding professional licensure.
Hospitals are the primary employers for computerized axial tomography, although there
are opportunities in private physician's offices and medical laboratories. A certification
as a computerized axial tomographer can also open up new career options for current
members of the imaging specialists.
