Golden anniversary

Huntsville Hospital’s School of Radiologic Technology is turning 50 years old.

Founded in 1969, it is the only accredited associate degree program sponsored by Huntsville Hospital. Students enrolled in this two-year program are educated in the art and science of diagnostic imaging. Didactic courses are taught at the hospital's Dowdle Center; students do their clinical training at Huntsville Hospital, Huntsville Hospital for Women & Children, Huntsville Imaging Center and Madison Hospital.

Graduates earn an associate degree in occupational technology with a major in radiography from the hospital. They can then apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technology national certification exam to become a registered radiologic technologist.

Nearly 400 students have completed the program in the past 50 years. The majority of graduates are employed by Huntsville Hospital.

The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology and has approval from the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education to award the associate degree. The school is an eligible institution to provide training to veterans through the GI Bill and can accept tuition payments through the Prepaid Alabama College Tuition (PACT) program.
