Medical Imaging Education

Medical Imaging is a dynamic, fast growing, and highly technical field in healthcare. The Medical Imaging Education department at Red Rocks Community College provides learning opportunities in the specialized fields of Radiologic Technology and Sonography.

The Medical Imaging Education department at Red Rocks Community College provides the opportunity for students to learn the didactic portion of the programs from highly qualified instructors. The didactic courses are supplemented with hands-on lab instruction and supervised practice in our lab facilities at the Arvada campus.

In addition to the didactic education students receive, there is a hands-on clinical component with each program that affords students the opportunity to work in some of the best clinical environments in the area, under the supervision of qualified staff, while utilizing their learned skills on actual patients.

The skills learned in the Medical Imaging Education department prepare our students for entry-level positions in the field and to take the certifying exams required to practice. Students have the opportunity to receive an Associate of Applied Science degree with the Radiologic Technology Program and the Sonography program, as well as a specialty certificates with the Sonography program.
