Carroll University offers an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences with an emphasis in Radiologic Technology through unique partnerships with Ascension-St. Joseph, Advocate Aurora Health, and Froedtert Hospital. This B.S. degree affords students additional career choices over earning the certificate alone. Students receive the benefits of close, personal attention during their first years at Carroll followed by two years of clinical experiences in each hospital partner’s School of Radiologic Technology and associated clinical sites.
Radiologic technologists enjoy employment in varied settings, including hospitals, medical and diagnostic laboratories, diagnostic imaging centers and outpatient care centers. Additional opportunities are available in education, management and medical equipment sales related to radiology. Long-term employment prospects in this area are forecast to be favorable.
The Rad Tech partnership program provides the approved education needed for students to be eligible to sit for their required national exam. Passing the exam is required in order to practice. While many students complete their registry exams while in the program, they must seek licensure (if required) individually. Wisconsin currently requires that any person who performs radiography or operates an X-Ray Machine or X-Ray Equipment, and is not exempt from the law, shall obtain a license or permit to perform radiography or limited scope radiographic procedures. https://dsps.wi.gov/Pages/Professions/RadiographerLicensed/Default.aspx

Entry into the professional phase is highly competitive. Acceptance into the professional phase of the program is determined solely by the admissions committee at each hospital partners’ independent School of Radiologic Technology. Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee acceptance into the hospital phase and there are typically more applicants that seats available in the program. It is strongly recommended that students enrolled in this program have a parallel plan in the event clinical phase admission is not attained. The program requires students to attend class year-round. Courses completed during the summer and winter terms will incur additional tuition fees. See the Admissions section of the catalog or contact the Health and Medical Sciences Advisor for more details.
Accepted students transitioning into the clinical phase of the program must adhere to all policies and maintain all progression standards outlined and provided by their cooperating hospital partner. See the College of Health Science Progression Standards section of the catalog for more details. Students in the partnership program for Radiologic Technology must adhere to the policies and requirements outlined by both Carroll University and their hospital program.
