Radiologic Technologists are specially trained health care professionals who assist radiologists by producing radiographs used to diagnose pathology and injury. The technologist provides patient care and uses technology to provide quality health care to the patient.

Program
The two-year Radiologic Technology Program is a Memorial Health System sponsored Certificate Award program with articulation with Washington State Community College for the OPTIONAL A.A.S. degree. "RADT" courses begin each fall and consist of eight consecutive quarters of study. "RADT" Didactic courses are held at Washington State; labs and clinical rotations are held at Marietta Memorial, Camden Clark Medical Center – Memorial Campus, and Camden Clark Medical Center – St. Joseph's Campus. Students complete the program in July of their second year. Graduates of the program are eligible to sit for the ARRT national certification exam to become a Registered Radiologic Technologist. All Non-"RADT" courses are open enrollment classes and may be completed prior to entering the program.
