Radiologic Technology (RAD) Program Information

Associate of Applied Science

 

Curriculum Accreditation Performance

 

Radiographers are highly skilled professionals qualified to perform diagnostic imaging procedures and examinations prescribed by licensed medical practitioners. Technologists apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology, positioning, and radiographic techniques to provide quality healthcare services. The mission of the Baker College Radiologic Technology program is to enable 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.

 

This program is offered on the following campus: Clinton Township (CT), Muskegon (MU), Owosso (OW)

Program Mission & Outcomes

Mission

The mission of the Baker College Radiologic Technology program is to enable 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.

As an essential component of the Baker College’s academic health programs, the Associate Applied Science Degree (AAS) program has the following goals:

  • Students will perform competently.
  • Students will critically think and solve problems effectively.
  • Students will communicate effectively.
  • Students will develop and grow professionally.
  • Students will become successful graduates of the program.

 

Customer Satisfaction Policy

Baker College is an institution focused on customer satisfaction. To that end, any concerns or complaints regarding the Radiologic Technology Program can be sent to the attention of the director of the program on the appropriate campus. The director will investigate the complaint, consult with all parties involved, and provide a response as soon as all information has been evaluated. The program director will inform the Dean of Health Sciences of the complaint, investigation, and what actions have been taken.

If resolution cannot be reached at the level of the program director, the problem will follow the chain of command beginning with the Dean of Health Sciences, followed by the Chief Academic Officer/Vice President of Academics of the campus, the President of the campus, and finally the President of the Baker College System.
