Program Information

Bon Secours St. Mary’s Hospital School of Medical Imaging is currently completing the last cohort of the 18-month (approximately 72 weeks) residential Radiologic Technology program designed to prepare individuals to enter the workforce as entry-level Diagnostic Radiologic Technologists, also known as Radiographers. Graduates of the program are eligible to apply for national credentialing through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists www.arrt.org.

The School is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), www.abhes.org, programmatically accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) www.JRCERT.org and certified to operate in the Commonwealth of Virginia by the State Council of Higher Education in the State for Virginia (SCHEV) www.SCHEV.edu.

Program hours of operation are Monday–Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and consists of didactic and clinical components. The didactic portion of the program includes both lecture and labs, which are offered in traditional, on-ground format, held at the School campus.

Clinical hours will vary depending on individual clinical sites. During the 4th and 5th semesters, student clinical experience includes an evening clinical rotation of four weeks duration that includes: two (2) weeks at a hospital/emergency center during the time frame of 1:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. and two (2) weeks at a KidMed Pediatric Urgent Care Center during the time frame of 2:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
