Carroll University offers an opportunity to major in Health Sciences with an Emphasis in Radiologic Technology with the Radiology Alliance–Froedtert Hospital, Columbia-St. Mary's Hospital and Wheaton Franciscan–St. Joseph, as well as with Aurora Health Care. The partnership allows students the benefits of close, personal attention during the first two years at Carroll followed by two years at one of these area hospitals with a small class of other students pursuing Radiologic Technology.
Radiologic technologists are most often employed in hospitals, but can also find employment with physicians, medical and diagnostic laboratories, diagnostic imaging centers and outpatient care centers. Some radiologic technologists find employment with manufacturers of equipment used in the field. Long-term employment prospects in this area are forecast to be favorable.
Entry into the professional training phase at the hspitals is highly competitive and dependent upon completion of general education requirements, a minimum overall and science GPA of 2.75, a grade of 'C' or better in all science courses and completion of all required and elective courses within the first two years. A Certified Nursing Assistant license (CNA) is highly recommended. Lack of patient care experience will prevent acceptance into a hospital School of Radiologic Technology. This program requires year round classes. See Admissions section of this catalog for requirements.
