About the Dr. Earl D. Smith School
The School of Radiologic Technology offers you two curriculum choices. All students are required to have a minimum of an Associate's Degree in order to graduate from the Arnot Ogden, along with the radiology courses. You may complete the requirements for a Certificate in Radiologic Technology (Track I), or pursue both the Certificate and the Directed Studies Associates in Applied Science Degree through Corning Community College (Track II).
No matter which curriculum track fits your individual needs, it is required that you have taken or will need to take before you can graduate, two semesters Anatomy and Physiology, College English and College Math. It is recommended that these requirements are completed before admittance to the program.
Anatomy and Physiology classes are offered in Elmira and the Lab sections are given on the Corning Community College campus. All other courses must be taken online.
Students who need to obtain the Associate's Degree from Corning Community College will be required to take twenty-nine additional credit hours over the 23-month term of study in the program to meet degree requirements for Corning Community College.
The credit hours from Corning Community College give you additional background in interpersonal communication, psychology, social sciences and humanities. The degree option from Corning Community College is unique in a hospital school of radiologic technology.
