Helping doctors get a complete picture of patients suffering from disease or injury is the role of radiographers, who use diagnostic medical imaging to create x-ray images called radiographs. Education programs for radiographers are conducted in cooperation with radiology departments in and around the city where the program is located. The Amarillo College program is directly affiliated with acute-care hospitals in Amarillo, Borger, Dumas, Hereford, and Pampa. Radiography students also rotate through free-standing imaging clinics and private physician offices during their time at AC.


What can you do with a Radiography degree?

Radiology science is advancing quickly and now includes some of the most sophisticated technological equipment found in any medical-related profession. Advances in technology along with the expansion of radiology departments throughout the country continue to create a strong demand for professionals educated in radiography. Radiographers are primarily employed in hospitals, but many work in out-patient clinics and physician offices. Demand for radiographers continues to remain strong, and the profession offers a high degree of job security.
