The Computed Tomography (CT) program is a post-associate advanced certificate program that is designed for registered radiologic technologists (ARRT), radiation therapists (ARRT), and nuclear medicine technologists (ARRT or NMTCB). This program offers the didactic and clinical experience that will provide students with the knowledge and skills that are required to become an entry-level computed tomography technologist. The curriculum is based on the recommended American Society of Radiologic Technology (ASRT) computed tomography guidelines. Upon successful completion of the Computed Tomography program, students are eligible to take the ARRT post-primary certification examination in computed tomography.
This is a high demand, high skill and high wage program as defined by the Michigan Community College Network.
The Computed Tomography Certificate is a two-semester (fall and winter) program. Classes are taught by practicing, registered CT technologists from the University of Michigan and St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor Michigan. Students get extensive hands-on experience through two semesters of clinical training by working in CT Departments at several Wayne, Washtenaw, and Monroe county hospitals, giving them the knowledge and skills they need to become entry-level computed tomography technologists.
