Applications are now being accepted for the class beginning July 1, 2021. The application deadline is November 30, 2020.

The Albert Einstein Medical Center’s School of Radiologic Technology at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia campus or otherwise known as “the Program” has been in existence since 1946, graduating its first class in 1948.  The Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).  Graduates are eligible to apply for admission to the certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  Eligibility requirements for ARRT certification in Radiography will call for candidates to have earned an associate (or more advanced) degree from an accredited agency effective January 1, 2015.

Students in the Program gain a wealth of knowledge in the Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (“EMCP”), Department of Radiology and in the various satellite facilities.  A wealth of training material is available from the over 264,000 diagnostic examinations performed annually.  Aside from the many routine diagnostic rooms, specialized facilities are available in angiography, fluoroscopy, neuroradiography and ultrasound, as well as head and whole-body spiral computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and PACS.  The Department is fully digital in producing patient examinations.   An entire section of the Department is devoted to the performance of mammography procedures.  Students also gain valuable outpatient clinical experience at some of AEMC’s satellite facilities in the Philadelphia area.

The Program is twenty-three (23) months.  Upon successful completion of all the Program’s academic and clinical requirements, a student will be awarded a Certificate in Radiologic Technology from AEMC.  The Program has a July starting date with orientation for all first-year students commencing the first week of July.  Classes and clinical education are scheduled Monday through Friday 8 AM to 4PM and do not exceed a total of 40 hours weekly.  

The Albert Einstein Medical Center’s School of Radiologic Technology considers all candidates for admission without regard to age, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, or disability.
