Applications are now being accepted for Midland College’s (MC) new Radiologic Technology program.  Deadline to submit applications is June 29, 5:30 pm.  Interested students must ensure they meet the General College Admission Requirements and the Radiology Program Admission Requirements, which can be found on the Midland College website. 

Classes begin on August 21 and include didactic, laboratory and clinical components. All coursework will take place at Midland Memorial Hospital’s F. Marie Hall Outpatient Center located at 4214 Andrews Highway, Midland.  Coursework leads to an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, and graduates will be eligible to take the national registry examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Radiologic Technologists perform diagnostic imaging examinations on patients. They are responsible for preparing patients for procedures, using x-ray equipment and working with medical providers to obtain the best images possible to properly evaluate the patient.  

“For people who are looking for a career that works with the latest advances in medical care where they can be a vital part of the patient care team, Radiologic Technology is a great choice,” Kelly Wright, Director of Radiology for Midland Memorial Hospital, said.  “Radiologic Technologists are in high demand in Midland.  In fact, we are currently having to use contract labor in several radiography areas at the hospital.”  

Wright stated that after receiving their initial registry, there are additional registry exams that can be considered, such as Interventional Radiography, CT, MRI, Bone Density and Mammography.  There are full-time, part-time and PRN employment opportunities.  Current full-time starting pay is $26.72/hour.  In addition, Midland Memorial Hospital offers a $10,000 sign-on bonus to new graduates who are offered employment and a $500 stipend to help pay for supplies and the national registry exam.

“We need Radiologic Technologists who can multi-task but are detail oriented,” Wright said.  “When I hire, I’m looking for people who are critical thinkers, can handle fast-paced environments, patient centric, dependable and most of all, have a servant’s heart.”

Wright assisted with curriculum development for the MC program and said that the program is designed to maximize students’ time in each semester so the students will graduate with an AAS degree in two years.  (Most Health Sciences programs can take up to three years because of multiple prerequisites the students must complete prior to program acceptance.)  Currently, only one course—College Algebra—is required as a prerequisite for the Radiologic Technology program.

Wright also explained after students are accepted into the MC program, they can apply for a Midland Memorial Hospital scholarship that will pay up to full tuition, books and supplies, as long as they make a two-year employment commitment to Midland Memorial Hospital after they receive their degree and license.
