The Radiography cooperative program between JFK Muhlenberg Snyder School of Radiography and Union County College offers the advantage of a hospital-based radiography program coupled with college-based academic courses.
The degree earned (Diploma in Radiography and an Associate in Science) enables graduates to transfer credits toward a bachelor's degree or a radiologic technology speciality if desired.
Clinical competency is an integral component of the program; however, before students work with patients, they must complete several simulated laboratory sessions that correspond directly to classroom lessons. Clinical rotations are conducted at JFK Medical Center in Edison, NJ, and other hospitals and several satellite facilities in New Jersey.
