The Radiologic Technology program prepares students to become entry-level radiologic technologists. Students develop technical skills in diagnostic imaging through classroom instruction, lab demonstrations, and clinical application—all with a focus on real-world experience.
The primary role of the radiographer is to provide diagnostic images of the structure and function of anatomy to assist the physician in the treatment of injury and disease. Graduates are prepared with the technical skills necessary to perform a variety of diagnostic radiographic examinations. Examples of examinations performed include chest, upper and lower extremities, spine, ribs, skull, gastrointestinal, genitourinary, and reproductive systems.
The UAA Radiologic Technology Program is an Associate of Applied Science degree program and is delivered to select Alaska communities throughout the state. Students who apply to a distance site must follow the same admissions process as those students applying to the Anchorage campus, including being admitted to the University of Alaska Anchorage as a degree-seeking student. Students who are accepted at a distance site attend classes on UA campuses in those communities through video conferencing. Distances students are required to attend an entire clinical practicum in Anchorage.
The admittance process is competitive and completion of the admission requirements does not guarantee selection into the Radiologic Technology full-major program. Upon selection into the full-major program, students will be required to complete five (5) semesters of radiologic technology coursework. For full application instructions, please review the program application procedure information.
Program is offered statewide with distance program delivery at UAA’s satellite campuses.
Learn from nationally certified faculty who have worked in clinical and hospital settings.
Graduates eligible for certification with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
Train and practice with the latest state-of-the-art radiology equipment.
The UAA Catalog is the official source of all degree and certificate programs at the university. Catalog entries for each program include details such as learning outcomes, application timeline and requirements, course sequencing, and program requirements.
Welcome to the UAA Radiologic Technology Program. Our program is very challenging, but also exciting and stimulating, as is the profession of Radiology Technology itself. Students are trained to perform diagnostic imaging examinations. They learn the art and science of the profession through classes in anatomy, patient positioning, examination techniques, equipment protocols, radiation safety, radiation protection and patient care. Students are provided opportunities to attend practicum classes at local radiology departments. Departments throughout the entire state employee graduates of our program and many of our former students now have advance training in other modalities building on the graduate level skills they learned through our program. We invite you to explore our site to see if the UAA Radiologic Technology Program is the right opportunity for you.
