Emory Decatur Hospital’s School of Radiologic Technology offers a 24-month, 40-hour-per-week, full-time certification program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). For more than 50 years, our competency-based clinical radiology program has allowed students to receive both classroom and clinical instruction, which are required for graduation by the JRCERT.
A radiologic technologist is an allied health professional who completes radiology training to obtain medical images for interpretation by a radiologist, assists the physician and provides patient care. Completion of our radiology program can lead to employment opportunities as a registered radiologic technologist in a hospital, physician office, public health office, industry or government agency.
Radiology training in Atlanta at Emory Decatur Hospital gives students access to the latest available knowledge, skills and equipment.
