The Radiography cooperative program between JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Radiography and Union County College offers the advantage of a hospital-based radiography program coupled with college-based academic courses.
The degree earned (Diploma in Radiography and an Associate in Science) enables graduates to transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree or a radiologic technology specialty if desired.
Clinical competency is an integral component of the program; however, before students work with patients, they must complete a number of simulated laboratory sessions which correspond directly to classroom lessons. Clinical rotations are conducted at JFK Medical Center in Edison, NJ as well as other hospitals and several satellite facilities in New Jersey.
The Radiography Program:
- Day/Full Time – Six semesters of professional courses (two years)
- Requires High School Diploma or GED/Adult Diploma
