Associate in Specialized Technology Degree Program in Radiography

The Radiography program at Sanford-Brown is designed to prepare students to perform radiographic procedures and understand radiation protection, radiologic physics, and image production.

Students will study principles and procedures used in professional practice, including image analysis, radiation protection, radiographic pathology, digital image acquisition and display, and radiographic testing.

The core curriculum is structured to include a lecture component, an imaging laboratory component, and an integrated clinical component. The final clinical portion of the curriculum consists of supervised experiences in a clinical environment, which requires competencies, logs, and evaluations completed by the student.

At the conclusion of the program, graduates who have diligently attended class and their clinical, studied, and practiced their skills should have the skills to seek entry-level employment as radiographers.

    Employment Rates:

    Given the fact that all of the rates reflected below are based on historical data and were subject to varying levels of audit and re-interpretation, students should not rely on them as an implicit or explicit representation or promise of future outcomes or employability following completion of a program of study. Indeed, there are numerous factors that affect a student’s ability to graduate and secure employment over which we have little or no control. Therefore, our school cannot and does not guarantee or estimate the likelihood of on-time completion, graduation, or employment for any student.

    Reporting Period: 1/1/2009 through 12/31/2013

    Date Submitted: 07/2014


    The JRCERT promotes excellence in education and elevates quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry. The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.

    Rate Calculation

    The JRCERT threshold is a five (5) year average job placement rate of not less than 75% within six (6) months of graduation

    Job placement rate is defined as the number of graduates employed in the radiologic sciences compared to the number of graduates actively seeking employment in the radiologic sciences within six months of graduation.

    SBI - Pittsburgh - Graduation Rate

    The campus began providing instruction after the date range used for the graduation rate calculation. The graduation rate is calculated AFTER there are graduates from the longest program at the school based on a formula required by the U.S. Department of Education. For this reason, data is not available at this time.

    Graduation Rate

    A first-time student has no prior postsecondary experience before enrolling at this campus. This means that a student who attended another college, university or other postsecondary school before enrolling at this school is not included in the calculation. The rate also does not include students initially enrolled part-time, taking individual classes (as compared to enrolling in a full program), or only auditing classes. These rates are calculated using the Student Right-to-Know formula in order to comply with U.S. Department of Education requirements. The statistics track all first-time, full-time and certificate or degree-seeking undergraduate students who began school during the date range and have completed within 150% of the normal program length. For example, for a two-year program, the graduation rate would include students who had completed within three years of beginning the program. This statistic is not specific to one program alone; rather, all applicable undergraduate programs are included in this overall rate. Information pertaining to the Graduation Rates of all postsecondary institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may be found on the College Navigator website.
