Radiologic Technology At MCHP
Radiologic Technology Programs combine education about advanced technology, physiology, and human behavior to enable rewarding opportunities in the in-demand field of medical imaging. Radiologic Technology students spend time attending classes and clinical rotations in medical imaging departments, clinics, and doctors’ offices throughout Maine. Students gain in-depth and hands-on experience in all areas of diagnostic radiography including: radiographic equipment operation, patient positioning, radiation safety, and overall care. Program graduates are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination and obtain Maine State Licensing.
