Radiographers are highly skilled professionals qualified to perform diagnostic imaging procedures and examinations under the direction of a licensed physician.
The mission of the Baker College Radiologic Technology Program is the enabling of qualified students to develop into competent and professional entry level radiographers who are prepared to successfully sit for the ARRT examination and acquire gainful employment. We believe that this is done through exercises in critical thinking, varied clinical experience, the encouragement of universally responsible behavior, and foundations in guiding Radiologic principles.
- Goal I – Students will perform competently.
- Goal II – Students will critically think and solve problems effectively.
- Goal III – Students will communicate effectively.
- Goal IV – Students will develop and grow professionally.
- Goal V – Students will become successful as graduates of the program.
Graduates are eligible to sit for the ARRT examination, which is administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. ARRT credentials are a recognized national standard for medical imaging and radiologic technology professionals.
