Radiography (Certificate)

This program is a collaborative effort between UNC-CH and three area medical facilities- Alamance Regional Medical Center, Duke University Medical Center, and the UNC Health Care System. These facilities provide funding for the program in an effort to support North Carolina workforce demands. Because this is a privately funded program, its continuation is contingent on sustained funding from each of the three facilities. Please consult with The Division of Radiologic Science when planning on pursuing this academic program.

Upon completion of the program, graduates receive a Certificate in Radiography and may be eligible to take the national certification examination in Radiologic Technology administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
