Advance Your Imaging Career

Course goals and objectives are based on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Mammography (M) and Bone Densitometry (BD) post-primary certification exam content specifications. The program goal is to provide students with focused instruction to expand their technical knowledge in M & BD, with a supporting objective of preparing students for the ARRT post-primary certification exam in M and/or BD*.

* Clinical repetitions are required to apply for ARRT M and/or BD certification. The WHI Credit Certificate does NOT incorporate a clinical practicum. However, for those with experience in M and/or BD, the credit certificate does meet ARRT Structured Education requirements.

Program Overview

The online credit certificate program offers students a plan of study that provides fundamental didactic training on the essentials of women’s health imaging (WHI). The program will prepare students for advanced roles in medical imaging. All earned college credits from the WHI Credit Certificate program will apply directly to the Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging program.
