El Paso Radiologic Technology Program

The radiologic technology program at El Paso Community College in west Texas exclusively caters to part-time students, a group with traditionally low outcomes who in this program achieve great success. Combining classroom instruction and intensive clinical education, the program teaches students to operate sophisticated radiographic imaging equipment and prepare patients for a variety of diagnostic procedures. Nearly every year, 100% of program graduates pass the national certification exam. With such strong success rates, it’s no surprise that this program is adapting itself to meet the changing demands of the field. The program boasts some of the highest graduation and employment rates in the nation, and its students are playing an important role in the healthcare industry in the area.
