What is Radiography?

The Radiography Program at Jefferson is a full-time 21 month Associate Degree program which combines academic and laboratory courses with high technology clinical instruction. A new class is accepted in late spring for the upcoming fall semester. A student will receive his/her clinical education in numerous hospitals located in the Louisville metropolitan region.

This program prepares the individual to become a radiographer. The radiographer is prepared to administer ionizing radiation for medical diagnostic imaging purposes. Emphasis is on radiation protection and quality patient care.

After completing the competency based education curriculum, a qualified student is eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) certification examination. A prospective radiography student is advised that the ARRT examination board may not accept a student's application if he/she has been convicted of a felony.

The Radiography program does not offer certificates in volumetric imaging, limited radiography, or sonography.
