The Mammography Certificate Program is designed to provide radiographers with knowledge and basic skills in the practice of mammography. Students will gain didactic knowledge that can be used to fulfill the structured education requirement for the ARRT mammography certification exam.
The clinical education portion of the certificate provides basic experience in computed tomography and with completion of the specific mandatory patient exam requirements completed with the student’s employer will make them eligible to take the ARRT mammography certification exam.
The clinical portion of the certificate provides basic experience in computed tomography but does not complete the clinical competency requirement for the ARRT computed tomography certification.

In addition to the general admission requirements for all students, all applicants for the Mammography Certificate program must hold a current RT(R) certification from the ARRT as mammography is a specialization of radiography and the knowledge of x-ray interactions and radiation biology are a necessity for these courses.
