    The Radiologic Technology Program is a 2-year program designed to prepare the student for an exciting career as a Health Care Professional. Students will have earned an Associate in Applied Science Degree. Students will gain experience and knowledge through a combination of classroom, laboratory and clinical hands on experience. Clinical sites will include surrounding community hospitals. 

    Upon completion of the program, students will have developed the skills as an entry level Radiologic Technologist. The student will then be able to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) exam. The successful completion of the ARRT exam will allow the student to then apply for a Texas Medical Board license as required by the State of Texas for employment.

    Policy on Mammography 

     

    The radiography program sponsored by Coastal Bend College has revised its policy, effective December 13, 2021, regarding the placement of students in clinical mammography rotations to observe and/or perform breast imaging.

    Under the revised policy students may request the opportunity to participate in clinical mammography rotations. The program will make every effort to place students in a clinical mammography rotation if requested; however, the program is not in a position to override clinical setting policies that restrict clinical experiences in mammography to students. Students are advised that placement in a mammography rotation is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of a clinical setting.

    The change in the program’s policy regarding student clinical rotations in mammography is based on the sound rationale presented in a position statement on student clinical mammography rotations adopted by the Board of Directors of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) at its April 2016 and October 2021 meetings. The JRCERT position statement is included as Addendum A to the program’s policy and is also available on the JRCERT Web site, www.jrcert.org, Programs & Faculty, Program Resources.
