Radiologic Technology Program
The Associate of Science in Radiologic Technology program at the University of Saint Francis consists of four semesters and two eight-week summer sessions. Radiologic Technology coursework is based on the curriculum recommended by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT), which is incorporated into the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) Standards for an Accredited Educational Program.
In the Radiologic Technology program, you will receive classroom instruction at USF and clinical experience in various hospital and clinical radiology areas. Progression through the competency-based program is accomplished by means of didactic instruction, laboratory demonstration and practice, and clinical experience. The majority of your classes will take place during daytime hours, but you will be required to complete some clinical assignments in the evening.
You will be able to complete your two-year program in a variety of ways. You will work with a faculty adviser to develop an individualized plan of completion based on your placement test scores and previous academic background. Because clinical enrollment is limited, acceptance into the Radiologic Technology program does not guarantee automatic placement in a clinical course.
Once you enter the clinical course sequence, you will be considered a full-time Radiologic Technology student and will be required to complete the curriculum as outlined. Policies concerning attendance, standards of conduct, withdrawal, academic standards, clinical education and more are available in the Department of Radiologic Technology Student Handbook. You will receive a copy of the handbook at orientation.
