Admission Requirements

Qualifications

  • The student must be a high school graduate. 

However, if they were not able to graduate high school, they may opt to take the Alternative Learning System (ALS) and pass the Philippine Educational Placement Test (PEPT) to qualify for college; the availability of courses for PEPT passers depend on the university.

  • The students must pass the College Admissions Test of the university.


Basic Requirements

Program Outcome

Graduates of  BS in Radiologic Technology are expected to be able to:

  • Apply scientific knowledge and technical skills in the Radiologic Technology
  • Follow the professional ethical practices and regulations both in local and international setting
  • Implement safety and protection measures of radiation
  • Be a compassionate radiologic technologist to patients
  • Participate in research activities
  • Engage in lifelong learning


On-The-Job Training/Internship

During the fourth year of the program, students are required to attend an On the Job Training (OJT) in different tertiary hospitals doing clinical duty. Students are given the opportunity to apply their knowledge and skills in an actual work setting. Usually, universities require them to submit a written report on their tasks, learning experiences, and hours rendered. Their work performance will also be evaluated by their immediate managers and will be submitted to their respective OJT coordinator. The number of hours required may differ in each university.


Board Exam

To become a Licensed Radiologic Technologist in the Philippines, a graduate of BS in Radiologic Technology needs to pass the Radiologic Technology Licensure Examination. The examination is conducted by the Board of Radiologic Technology under the supervision of the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC).


Career Opportunities

Graduates of BS in Radiologic Technology may pursue a career path in different tertiary hospitals. They may apply as a radiologic technologist, computed tomography technologist, magnetic resonance imaging technology, ultrasound technologist, positron emission tomography technologist, cardiovascular technologist, mammography technologist, interventional radiologic technologist, nuclear medicine technologist, radiation therapy technologist, or a digital subtraction angiography technologist.

list bulletWhy did I choose Radiologic Technology: RadTech was not my first choice because I shifted from engineering course. This course was just recommended by my 2 older sisters who are registered nurses. They are in the medical field so they know what RadTech is and how in-demand it is. All in all I had no idea what this course is all about.

list bulletAbout my college education: I have learned a lot in my four years in RadTech. At first, all I knew was doing an XRay procedure. Well actually most people do realize that RadTechs are only people who do XRay procedures which is specifically Chest XRay. All those perceptions of mine were not downgraded but upgraded when I started to learn the course from 1st year to 4th year. RadTech is more on Radiologic Physics, it is about the production of radiation and it's properties, how radiation interacts in human body and film (this is your X-Ray image, it's like a photograph), how to handle and understand machines that produce radiation like X Ray machine, CT Scanner, PET Scanner, Mammographic machine and Fluoroscope as well as non emitting radiation machines like Ultrasound and MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging). We also learned professional subjects like Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Therapy, Radiologic Pathology, Special Procedures and Interventional Radiology. Those subjects are the most difficult ones since it all deal with curing the diseases most commonly cancers or tumors, stones in your organs and the like.

There are some who failed and shifted to another course but since I've decided that I won't shift anymore this is my final course and I want to pass whatever challenges in the way. I've reached 4th year and it's internship year which is you are sent to any school affiliated hospitals and clinics to train like professional radiologic technologist.

Internship was the best experience among other experiences I had in my entire radtech college life. There, you interact with true patients and work with your senior registered radiologic technologists (or senior techs) who help you in any procedures you want to learn and also defend you in any mistakes you commit. I haven't been so committed in my life like before in my old course. I dedicated my life in studying and enjoying the subjects.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: You don't need to be intelligent to pass this course rather any other course. The key is dedication.
