The Radiologic Technology Program prepares students for entry level employment as radiologic technologists in hospitals and medical offices. It is offered as an academic program by Middlesex Community College in collaboration with Middlesex Hospital. General education courses are held at the College, while those courses requiring specialized laboratories, equipment, and hands-on practical experience are held at Middlesex Healthcare system facilities. The curriculum covers a 22-month period, including a 5 month internship (Jan-May).
Enrollment in the program is restricted by clinical facility capacity as per JRCERT accreditation guidelines.
