Radiologic Technology

Radiologic Technology

Macomb Community College partners with the DMC Sinai-Grace Hospital, Ascension Providence Hospital, and Ascension St. John Hospital 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: 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 eight 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, Ascension Providence Hospital, Southfield Campus and DMC/Sinai Grace Hospital.

Technical Standards for Admission, Progression and Graduation

The goal of the Health and Public Services Division is to prepare every student to think critically and practice competently and compassionately in rapidly changing environments. All efforts are designed to build knowledge, enhance practical skills, and promote patient and the population’s safety. Furthermore, the program is designed to foster professional integrity and ultimately improve the health outcomes and protection of patients, families, and communities across the continuum of care and practice. Students must possess certain functional abilities, essential for the delivery of safe, effective clinical care and protection of the public during clinical and internship training activities in the field. Therefore, the faculty has determined that certain technical standards are required for admission to, progression in, and graduation from the Health and Public Services (HPS) programs.

In addition to classroom learning, clinical and internship learning occurs throughout the HPS programs and involves considerations (such as patient and population safety and clinical and internship facility safety) that are not present in classroom accommodations. Applicants or students interested in HPS programs who seek accommodations prior to or immediately after enrolling in the college are highly encouraged to also request an assessment of the types of reasonable accommodations needed for the clinical and or internship components of the program.

An individual must be able to independently, with or without reasonable accommodation, meet the following technical standards of general abilities: (1) observation;
(2) communication; (3) motor skills; (4) intellectual, conceptual, and quantitative abilities; (5) essential behavioral and social attributes; and (6) ability to manage stressful situations. Individuals unable to meet these technical standards, with or without reasonable accommodation will not be able to complete the programs and are counseled to pursue alternative careers.

SPECIAL SERVICES STATEMENT: Students may individually discuss the essential functions and technical standards with a college counselor from our Special Services department. In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the American Disability Act of 1991, academic accommodations may be provided to students who have a documented disability.
