The two years of campus preparation for the Radiologic Technology program include courses in biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and psychology as well as courses to fulfill competence requirements. Following the campus preparation, the student applies for admission to a hospital school for an internship. The 24-month clinical internship may be taken at St. Alexius School of Radiologic Technology or Sanford Health Systems in Bismarck; Trinity Hospital School of Radiologic Technology, Minot; Rapid City Regional Hospital; Mayo School of Health-Related Sciences, Rochester, MN or at any other accredited school.
A total of 60 semester credits will be granted for courses taken during the internship. Upon completion of the internship, the student is eligible to take the AART Radiographer’s Registry Examination to become certified as a Registered Radiologic Technologist/Radiographer.
All students, including transfer students, must take at least 32 semester credits on campus; 16 of these are to be in math/science. Credit received for the clinical internship does not satisfy this requirement.
Students are responsible for providing transportation to and from all clinical internship assignments and for personal living expenses throughout the clinical internship, regardless of location.
