Update: July 16, 2021

Due to response volume paired with limited funds, the Critical Occupations Free Tuition Program awarding is paused for Vermont Tech, Castleton University, and Northern Vermont University, with the exception of our Paramedicine Certificate.

Students at all institutions can still take advantage of the opportunities offered with the Green Mountain Grad program, the 802 Opportunity Program, the Welcome Home Scholarship, and the Degree Completion Scholarship.

Radiologic technology is a career field that requires a skilled person, qualified by a medical and technical education to provide patient services at hospitals, physicians’ offices, and imaging centers. A radiologic technologist uses x-ray equipment to produce images of tissues, organs, bones and vessels of the body. A radiologic science degree requires that you pass a national registry examination. Successful completion of the exam allows the radiographer the opportunity to cross-train into CT, mammography, cardiac catheterization lab, angiography, bone densitometry, and quality assurance/control.

Not only are radiologic technologists involved in operating radiologic equipment, they also perform certain administrative tasks. Technologists prepare and maintain the patient’s records, keep track of patient images and analyze images for diagnostic quality. They may also maintain paper or electronic files, schedule appointments, prepare work schedules and, in general, manage radiology departments or facilities. Good health, emotional stability and a sincere desire to work with the ill and disabled are important qualifications for this profession. Radiographers may serve in other capacities such as:

  • Technical advisors and application specialists
  • Representatives for radiologic equipment and supply manufacturers
  • Federal government and Armed Forces
  • Public health, educational institutions and clinics
