The purpose of this program is to prepare students to practice as proficient, multi-skilled professionals in culturally diverse health care settings, to demonstrate outcomes required by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and program guidelines and to prepare students for application and completion of ARRT certification examinations. Upon completion of the program and the general education requirements students will be eligible to apply for an Associate of Applied Science degree. Please note: Diagnostic Imaging is a program of the Radiologic Sciences.
Students attend classes approximately 40 hours a week. The program does not follow the traditional college terms. Classes are conducted in real time using a “Virtual Classroom” and a robust online course management system. Lab experiences will take place at the Lebanon lab and/or local healthcare facilities (for specific distance education students). Currently the program has distance labs located in the BMCC, COCC, Clatsop CC, and TVCC areas. Individuals applying to one of the aforementioned Distance Education (DE) areas should reside in the associated Community College district prior to application and should expect to make a minimum of 7 to 9 trips to the LBCC campus in Lebanon, Oregon during the course of the program. All other applicants should expect to be in Lebanon, Oregon a minimum of 3 to 4 times per week during the first three terms of the program. Once enrolled in the Diagnostic Imaging Program, students are LBCC students and are supported by LBCC.
