Radiologic Sciences

Welcome to the Radiologic Sciences Program at the University of New Mexico Department of Radiology. The University of New Mexico School of Medicine, working in conjunction with University of New Mexico Hospital, provides a degree completion program that prepares each student for a career of their choice in Nuclear Medicine, Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Computed Tomography (CT) or Medical Imaging. Certifications are offered in CT, and / or MRI.

Each program involves academic course work, certificates include intensive clinical training at various medical facilities throughout the state. When not in the classroom, each student works under the supervision of clinical staff on a wide array of equipment and learns how to perform the various procedures associated with each type of examination.

Students completing CT, MRI or Nuclear Medicine program requirements are eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) examination. Nuclear Medicine students are also eligible to take the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) examination.

Students applying to the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) program should be either enrolled in the programs listed above or have completed an entry level Medical Imaging Program such as x-ray, ultrasound, or radiation therapy. Students are required to transfer prior college credits to the University of New Mexico before admission to the BSRS program.

UNM is now offering a separate educational option that provides instruction only and excludes the clinical component for the CT and MRI programs.  The ARRT requires all technologists pursuing post-primary certification Computed Tomography or Magnetic Resonance Imaging (CT and or MRI) to complete 16 credit hours in four specific content categories to be eligible to complete ARRT certification. UNM is now offering course work that will fulfill the structured educational requirement (SER). For more information, please click the SERS tab located on the right hand side of the homepage.
