Central Maine Medical Center

Radiologic Technology Program


The Clark F. Miller School of Radiologic Technology at the Central Maine Medical Center College of Nursing and Health Professions offers a challenging and rewarding career educational opportunity. The College's 22-month associate of applied science degree program provides instruction and clinical experience through a blend of classroom and clinical education.

The program begins in August each year. Students attend the College on a full-time basis, attending classes an average of two days a week and rotations in a clinical environment three days a week in medical imaging departments throughout the State. The majority of the clinical rotations occur during the weekday, although evening and weekend clinical rotations are required to provide optimal clinical experience. Students complete clinical education in all areas of diagnostic radiography and are introduced to medical imaging specialties. Program graduates are eligible to apply to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination and obtain Maine State Licensing.

Radiologic technology combines advanced technology and human compassion. Radiologic technologists use their knowledge of physics, human anatomy, and physiology to create permanent medical images. Through a blend of classroom and clinical training, students learn radiographic equipment operation, patient positioning, radiation safety, and patient care.

The School of Radiologic Technology was founded in 1949 by Clark F. Miller, M.D. It was the first formal training program for x-ray students in the state of Maine. The school, its instructors, and its graduates maintain a leadership role in the education of radiologic technologists.
