Shore Medical Center’s School of Radiologic Technology application admission period will begin on April 1, 2016. The School provides a full-time, two-year certificate program that teaches students the safe and correct way to take X-rays of the human body. The program is divided between classroom hours and hands-on clinical experience. Program graduates are awarded a certificate of program completion, which along with the possession of an Associates Degree or higher will allow them to apply for the American Registry of Radiographic Technologists (ARRT) Examination. Upon successful completion of the examination graduates may apply for State licensure.
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age by the first day of class and have a high school diploma or a GED. Applicants who have not already earned their Associate in Applied Science degree must have completed the following prerequisites at Atlantic Cape Community College with a minimum GPA of 3.0 before applying to the program:
- College Algebra or Precalculus
- English Composition I and II
- Comprehensive Medical Terminology
- Anatomy & Physiology I and II
- General Psychology
- Interpersonal Communications or Public Speaking
- Bioethics: Realities of the New Millennium
- Introduction to Computers
Applicants who have already earned a degree must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, including the successful completion of the following four college credit courses with a grade of “B” or higher: Written/Oral Communication (i.e.: English Composition I or II), Mathematics/Logical Reasoning (College Algebra or Precalculus), Anatomy & Physiology I or II or The Human Body, and Medical Terminology. The degree does not need to be in radiologic sciences.
The application admission period ends May 31, 2016. All application forms must be received by this date to be considered for enrollment.
In August of 2013, Shore Medical Center and Atlantic Cape Community College in Mays Landing, NJ, entered into an agreement where students in Shore’s School of Radiologic Technology who successfully complete the two-year program and all prerequisite courses at Atlantic Cape will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology.
The School of Radiologic Technology has trained students for careers as radiologic technologists for more than 20 years. As one of the few hospital-based programs in the state – and one of only three radiology schools of any kind in South Jersey – Shore’s program provides classroom and practical experience through rotations at outpatient centers and hospitals throughout the region. In October of 2012, the school received its eight-year accreditation renewal from the Joint Review Committee of Education in Radiologic Technology, which is a testament to its high standard of excellence.
