Radiologic Technology

Macomb Community College partners with the DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, Providence Hospital, and St. John Hospital & Medical Center to grant an Associate of Applied Science in Radiologic Technology. In this collaboration, Macomb will prepare you by providing the necessary prerequisite and general education courses (32 credits). A minimum of 15 semester credits must be completed at Macomb.

Once you have completed the prerequisite courses, you must fill out Macomb’s application for entry into the program. This form must be completed before Feb. 1 of the year you are seeking entry.

Radiologic Technology Application

You will then apply for acceptance at one of the collaborating Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) health care facilities to complete the 24-month hospital-based clinical and didactic components of the degree to earn a block of 30 semester credits. Acceptance into the program is not automatic and is highly selective based on successful completion of individual health care facilities admission requirements. Upon transfer to the hospital based program, your financial aid eligibility changes. We encourage you to meet with someone in financial aid to discuss these changes.

Students should be aware that the program requires clinical coursework which is usually 8 hours per day and can range from a minimum of 24 to a maximum of 40 hours a week. Clinical rotations are not limited to one site. Vacation periods are scheduled intermittently during the year by the individual health care facility which may not coincide with Macomb’s schedule of vacations. For specific details of each program and their respective admissions requirements, please visit the websites of the collaborating health care facility partners (Ascension St. John Hospital & Medical Center, Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield Campus, DMC/Sinai Grace Hospital).
