The mission of the King's Daughters' Health (KDH) School of Radiologic Technology is to provide a quality education in the radiographic sciences, utilizing a current, progressive, twenty-four (24) month competency-based clinical/didactic method of instruction. This prepares our graduates for a professional career as a radiographer and to sit for the ARRT (America Registry of Radiologic Technologists) national registry, which is accomplished only by integrating this new knowledge and skill with the KDH mission:
“To improve the health of our patients through care, service, and education.”

Role of a Radiologic Technologist
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology is a 24-month, six (6)-semester program that prepares its students to become competent radiologic technologists. A radiologic technologist is a highly trained professional who is skilled in the use of ionizing radiation for the quality demonstration of portions of the human anatomy on x-ray film, computer monitors, or fluoroscopic screens. The images produced by the radioligic technologists are used for diagnositc interpretation by a radiologist. Many radiologic technologists work in hospitals, although positions in medical clinics and private offices are available.
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology offers a certificate in radiologic technology. However, in order to be able to sit for the ARRT national registry, all students graduating after January 1, 2015 are required to have, at a minimum, an associates degree. In order for our students to meet this mandate, the KDH School of Radiologic Technology has entered into an articulation agreement with Ivy Tech Community College. Please see the Admissions page for more information.
