Program Description

This radiography program leads to certification in the field of Radiography (x-ray technology). Radiography uses technically sophisticated equipment that produces x-radiation used to create images of the human body. If you have a strong background in math and science, this program will prepare you for a career as a radiographer. Graduates are eligible to take the national certification examination. The program seeks to train a diverse healthcare workforce, and minority students are encouraged to apply.

The Radiography Program has two tracks, an 18-month and a 23-month track. Both cohorts will complete the didactic training together (8 hours per week). The 18-month track will attend clinic 28 hours per week with a total commitment of 36 hours per week. The 23-month track will attend clinic 20 hours a week in the first three semesters and 32 hours per week in the fourth semester. This is a commitment of 28 hours per week for the first three semesters and 32 hours per week in the final semester (clinic only). Students will not attend clinic during holidays or weekends. There will be some evening rotations.

Capitalizing on our exceptional resources, you will receive unparalleled training on state-of-the-art equipment. Your training will include general x-ray, orthopedics, pediatrics, emergency room, trauma, mobile studies and the surgical suite. You will obtain first-hand, clinical experience in radiologic procedures at several of our facilities, as well as other clinical facilities throughout the Baltimore metropolitan region: The Johns Hopkins Hospital, Johns Hopkins Hospital Outpatient Center, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging at White Marsh, Columbia, Odenton, Green Spring Station, and Sinai Hospital of Baltimore.

Meet a Recent Graduate

“I graduated from the Radiography program in 2019 with a full-time job as an X-ray Technologist at one of the Johns Hopkins Medical Imaging outpatient centers! The Radiography program was so much more than just sitting in classes and taking notes, it was a full 40 hours every week with lots of hands-on training and clinical time.You become so close with your classmates and teachers who are always available to help in any way possible. This program is known for having the most clinical hours compared to other programs in the area so it’s very engaging which can make it equally challenging and rewarding. In the end, everything I learned and experienced through this program reminded me of why I started this journey in medicine.”
