Radiography Program

The Radiography Program combines didactic and clinical education to prepare the graduate for a career as a radiographer. These health care professionals work in various medical settings producing radiographic images, assisting physicians during advanced radiographic procedures, determining safe exposure limits and providing appropriate patient care during procedures to produce filmless digital images. During the program, students are rotated through several different health care facilities that are located within a 45 mile radius of SCF Bradenton.  Student clinical rotations are scheduled during the weekdays and can occur between the hours of 7 a.m. and 8 p.m., depending on the schedule of the facility.

Upon completion of the program, the graduate is eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist Exam to become a registered radiographer. This registry is accepted in any state and many foreign countries. Employment opportunities exist in emergency centers, doctors offices, hospitals and industries. Opportunities exist for all combinations of working hours. The radiographer works closely with physicians and other members of the health care team to assure quality medical care. The State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota's Radiography program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606-3182,
