Associate of Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.)
The Associate of Applied Science degree in radiologic technology is offered by the University of Alaska Anchorage in cooperation with the UAF Community & Technical College and Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
Coursework for the degree is delivered through a combination of the traditional classroom setting, distance delivery and clinical experience. The radiologic technology program gives students the theory and clinical education to perform basic x-ray and imaging procedures
Graduates of the program are qualified to perform general radiological procedures and assist physicians in hospitals, clinics, and physicians’ offices. Graduates can also receive additional credentials through separate training in magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine, ultrasound or other specialty areas.
Students in the program will have the opportunity to complete clinical experience through laboratory work and practicum experience at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital, Tanana Valley Clinic, and Bassett Army Hospital on Fort Wainwright. Students will complete approximately 1200 clinical hours during their course of study.
Course content is designed to meet the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) accreditation standards and allows graduates to be able to apply for national certification with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
