Ivy Tech's Medical Imaging Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree program includes radiologic technology courses in:
- Patient care
Radiologic technologists must complete an accredited educational program, demonstrate moral fitness, and pass an AART exam. The Medical Imaging AAS program has limited admission.
Students must earn the AAS degree and pass the AART exam to pursue any of the Ivy Tech Medical Imaging certificates.
While Ivy Tech's Medical Imaging program is designed to prepare students for an immediate career, some graduates choose to transfer to a four-year university to pursue a four-year bachelor's degree. Articulated transfer opportunities are available with several Indiana institutions, including Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), IU Kokomo, and the University of Southern Indiana. If interested, students should review these options with their advisor.

Please consult with your advisor to determine which classes are the best option for you to take. Completion guides may vary by campus/location dependent on clinical availability.
The Medical Imaging Program offers didactic education through a hybrid distance learning model of virtual instruction and a required on-campus component. General education courses can be taken online, but all program-specific courses are taught in a traditional, in-person format given the hands on nature of the course material. Students should be prepared to be in class during the daytime and are required to provide their own transportation back/forth to clinical sites. Schedules vary based on campus. Reach out to your campus of interest to learn more about meeting times/dates.
Accredited hospitals and clinics provide clinical practice and supplemental instruction. Hospital-based programs offer hospital-transitional programs through Ivy Tech campuses in:
Career to Pursue
After ARRT certification, graduates may become radiologic technologists who are registered in general radiology. These professionals typically work in hospitals, clinics, and physician offices and in industry roles such as sales, equipment application, education, and management.
