Program Overview

X-rays, MRIs and other imaging techniques make modern medical practice possible. The technicians who operate this equipment are known as radiological technologists—“rad techs” for short—and they make a difference in the lives of patients every single day. If you’re a detail-oriented person who loves working with both machines and people, becoming a rad tech could be the right path for you.

At Concorde Career College in Memphis, we offer an AAS degree in radiologic technology that equips you with the combination of theoretical knowledge and practical clinical skills you need to perform X-rays and MRIs safely and accurately. You’ll also learn fundamental principles for interpreting tests, recording results, and working effectively with patients—all in as few as 21 months.
