Radiography (X-Ray) Program

When doctors need to diagnose an illness, they often turn to advanced medical imaging technologies to provide them with an inside view of a patient’s body. Radiologic technologists utilize specialized equipment to obtain diagnostic images and information to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

Mid Michigan College offers a two-year (not including prerequisites), Associate in Applied Science, Radiography Degree.

The curriculum consists of classes, labs with an energized x-ray machine, and clinical education. Clinical education takes place in area hospital Radiology departments.


As officials of the Radiography Program here at Mid, we are ready to help you fulfill your career goals.

Wishing you a great future,
