Medical Assistant Schools

People who are interested in a career as a medical assistant might also be interested in learning more about a career in radiology. But while there may be a lot of crossover in terms of subjects covered in the different education programs, a degree in medical assisting is different from a degree in radiology.

If you are interested in medical assisting, radiology, or sonography schools, schedule an appointment to speak with a school admissions representative to talk about which program might be right for you.

Frequently Asked Questions about Radiology Technician Schools

What will happen after I submit my request for information?

Once you submit your request for information, you will be contacted by a school representative, usually no longer than 48 hours from your submission. The school representatives are experts on the school they represent and have detailed information about every program that the radiology school offers. This is your time to cut past the surface information presented online and get into the details. Take some time to write down a list of questions or concerns you have so that you can make the most of your conversation with the radiology school rep.

Can I request information from more than one school?

Yes. In fact, it is recommended that you get acquainted with more than one school so you can compare and contrast the programs. If there are multiple schools on your list, you may want to find out which ones have the newest technology or the highest conversion of graduates to job holders. Getting the information from multiple schools will make you feel more confident in your decision and there are no costs to you for gathering information from this site.

Will my personal information be safe?

The information you submit allows a school representative to reach out to you and provide you with detailed information about their radiology school programs. You should never be asked to provide highly sensitive information such as a social security number. The information you initially provide should be limited to what is necessary to allow the representatives to contact you and to be aware of your program interests.

What questions should I ask the school representatives?

The school representatives are there to answer any possible question you have about the school or radiology programs of interest. Here are some questions to ask to help you know whether the school might have a program that is a good fit for you.

  • How long do the programs take to complete on average? Is there any flexibility in the program schedules?
  • What are the prerequisites and admission policies?
  • What types of courses do students take?
  • What is the cost of tuition? What are the expected costs for books and supplies?
  • What financial aid is available? 
  • When do classes start? Does the school have multiple start date options?
  • Does the school offer any online radiology programs in conjunction with the on-campus components?
  • What percentage of their graduating students go on to find employment in radiology within the first few months out of school?

The bottom line is to be sure you feel good about the program and that it works for you and your specific career goals. 

I am not sure which radiology technician school to get information from? I am interested in medical imaging in general, but I'm overwhelmed about the options.

Choosing which radiology program is right for you can be overwhelming at first. Under the larger umbrella of radiology there are three main segments, and below these three there are even more branches:

  • Radiography
    • CT (Computed Tomography)
    • MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging)
    • X-Ray (traditional radiography)
    • Mammography (Breast imaging)
  • Diagnostic medical sonography (ultrasound)
    • Vascular sonography
    • Cardiac sonography
    • Obstetric (ob-gyn)
    • Ophthalmology
    • Neurosonology
  • Nuclear medicine
    • Radiation therapy

This is a simplified, high-level view of the many paths to take among your radiology school options.

Where can I get more information about radiology career options?

To get more detailed information on the above mentioned job paths, start at the radiology careers page. You can then go into the links for each separate radiology career path to learn more.
