Program Code: RDT.CERT.CTC

This program provides certified radiologic technologists with an opportunity to obtain advanced modality training to become computed tomography (CT) technologists. Enrollment is limited to those who graduated from a radiologic technology program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) who are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Due to the limited number of spaces available in this program, selection is on a competitive basis. Interested individuals must follow the procedures in the computed tomography admission information packet . In order to be considered for admission into the program that begins in the spring, prospective students must complete the admission requirements by the first Friday in November.

In order to graduate, students must obtain a grade of “C” or better in all computed tomography courses. Students must also meet all clinical objectives, complete the required ARRT computed tomography examination repetitions and maintain current cardiopulmonary resuscitation certification while enrolled in the program. 

Individuals who successfully complete this program can take a certification and licensure examination in computed tomography administered by the ARRT. State certification as a medical radiation technologist is required for employment in Maryland.
