Radiology Technologist Schools in Massachusetts - MA
The Department of Public Health’s Radiation Control Program regulates radiologic technologists and their education standards, licensing and certification. They mandate that all radiologic technologists in the commonwealth of Massachusetts graduate from programs that are accredited by either the ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) or the NMTCB (Nuclear Medicine Technologists Certification Board).
Students in radiologic technologist programs in Massachusetts will participate in supervised clinical experiences in nearby medical facilities. Examples of such facilities include Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston; Winchester Hospital in Winchester, Stoneham and Medford; Harvard Medical School in Boston and Marlborough Hospital in Marlborough.
Following graduation, students may receive a temporary radiologic technologist license from the commonwealth prior to taking the certification examinations given by the ARRT or NMTCB. This license is valid for one year, during which time the student must pass the ARRT or NMTCB examination. After passing the exam, one is free to apply for a permanent license.
