All radiologic technologists working in New York must be licensed by and registered with the New York State Department of Health's Bureau of Environmental Radiation Protection (BERP). They must also be graduates of approved, accredited radiologic technologist schools and training programs. The New York Department of Health currently has approved 16 two-year educational radiologic technologist training programs at hospitals and 15 two-year programs at colleges or universities. In addition, there is one four-year program approved within the state, as well as a variety of programs available thorough online schools.
Most graduates of radiologic technologist training programs in New York earn associate degrees and are eligible to take the national certification examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), both of which are requirements for licensure in the state. Students gain clinical experience through externships at New York medical facilities and teaching hospitals such as Arnot Ogden Medical Center in Elmira, Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, Harlem Hospital Center in New York City, Bellevue Hospital in New York City, Mercy Medical Center in Rockville Centre, St. Luke’s Hospital in New York City, St. James Mercy Hospital in Hornell, Jamaica Hospital Medical Center in Queens, St. Elizabeth Medical Center in Utica and Brookdale Hospital in Brooklyn.
