Mammography

Mammography is a two-semester certificate program. Most of the classroom coursework is offered online, and students will gain lab experience using a state-of-the-art 3D mammography system. Clinical rotations are located at various imaging facilities.

Graduates will meet the Mammography Quality Standards Act's initial training requirements and may be eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologic (ARRT) post-primary certification in mammography. Once registered, students will be able to perform mammograms in hospitals and imaging facilities.
