If you're passionate about health care and helping others but aren't sure you want to commit to medical school, consider studying radiologic technology/service. You'll change patients' lives by using radiation to create images and administer doses of radiation. As part of a medical team, you're providing critical patient care, helping with everything from diagnosing broken bones to treating cancer with radiation.
Radiology students study radiographic technique, applied anatomy and physiology, radiation biology, patient positioning and education, and medical imaging/radiologic services management. Students also learn the basics of maintaining radiation equipment, safety techniques, and medical ethics.
