What will I learn?

As a mammographer, you use x-ray technology to assist in in the early detection of breast cancer and other breast diseases—a role that makes you an invaluable member of the healthcare team.

Designed for working technologists, this part-time, online program provides a flexible opportunity to earn a specialized mammography credential and advance your career in radiography. Through two traditional courses and a structured clinical internship, you'll build on your radiographic field experiences as you gain additional knowledge and education in the areas of patient care, image production, anatomy and physiology, and breast cancer pathology.

Upon completion of the program and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) clinical experience requirements, you'll be well-prepared to sit for the Mammography Post-Primary Certification Exam.
