This Radiography Program is a cooperative effort between Carroll, Hagerstown Community College, and Carroll Hospital Center. Students complete most academic requirements at Carroll. While students travel to Hagerstown to take the clinical courses, every attempt will be made to place students in Carroll County facilities for practicum courses.

Radiography is a health care career that specializes in the use of x-rays to image the body for medical diagnosis and offers excellent employment versatility and mobility. Hagerstown Community College’s Radiography Program is a 24-month, selective admission program designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to practice as radiographers. The program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Students enrolled in the program receive their clinical education in a variety of health care facilities. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification examination and pursue advanced education in medical imaging.

Human Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2 are required for admission to the Radiography Program. It is suggested that students complete as many of the General Education courses as possible before admission to the program.
