Program Summary

The Medical Assisting with X-Ray Tech (Limited Scope) Diploma Program provides training in administrative and clinical procedures, including limited radiography. The objective of this Program is to prepare graduates for entry-level positions such as medical assistant, medical administrative assistant, or clinical medical assistant in work locations such as hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, medical supply businesses, and home health agencies. The Program may lead to entry-level positions as limited x-ray technicians.

Program completion normally requires 12 months for full-time students. The Program is divided into 12 monthly academic periods (modules) comprised of 11 months of classroom and laboratory instruction and one externship period, which are delivered in a hybrid format. In the hybrid format, some courses are delivered residentially and some courses are delivered via distance education (i.e., on-line).

In order to be eligible for the externship period, students must successfully complete all courses in the academic periods and must have earned a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0.

Upon successful completion of all areas of this Program, graduates will be awarded a Diploma in Medical Assisting with X-Ray Tech (Limited Scope). Graduates will be eligible to take the licensure examination to become an Ohio-licensed General X-Ray Machine Operator with the Ohio Department of Health.
