Radiology Schools

A degree in radiology may be a minimum requirement for anyone who is considering a career as a radiologist or radiologic technician. People who pursue degree like may find careers in hospitals, doctor's offices, urgent care facilities, and even testing and diagnostic facilities where their skills will be put to use. The job duties of a professional with this degree may include taking x-rays, MRI scans, and other diagnostic scans, interpreting the results of those scans, and advising doctors on the best course of action based on the results. Every state and the District of Columbia requires licensing for radiologists and technicians, so it is imperative to understand what the professional's state of residency requires in order to become licensed and certified to do their job. Radiology programs generally last for two years or less, although higher education can be sought for those who want the best paid positions and the most opportunity for advancement. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics salary for radiology professionals varies depending on their exact role and position, but averages out to about $54,000 annually in May, 2011. This, of course, will be different for each professional based on their own experience and chosen position within the radiology industry. Radiologists and radiologic technicians will see a job increase of about 17% through the next 8-10 years, which is well above the national average.
