Thank you for your interest in The Mary Washington Hospital School of Radiologic Technology. The Radiologic Technologist program at Mary Washington Hospital began in 1991 and graduated its first class of seven students in 1993. The program has successfully graduated over 150 Radiographers with an overall 94% first time ARRT pass rate. Furthermore, the program has 94% job placement rate since its 1991 inception. The first classes were held across from the Mary Washington Hospital building at 2301 Fall Hill Ave in Fredericksburg, VA. As the school grew and more space became available the school relocated to the General Washington Building at 2217 Princess Anne Street in Fredericksburg. In 2006 the program moved to its current home on Fall Hill Avenue, where we continue to strive for excellence in the imaging sciences.

We offer a Certificate in Radiologic Technology for entry-level professionals pursuing a career in Radiology. Attendance for the program is full time, Monday through Friday, no more than 10 hours per day. The hours per day will vary, not to exceed 40 hours per week, for a total of 21 months. Our program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and meets national standards set by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT).

Our curriculum includes both theoretical and practical coursework with significant clinical experiences. Our school prepares students for entry-level success and encourages professional development for a competitive healthcare industry. We do not provide job placement after graduation, however, we assist our students with knowledge of available employment in the surrounding areas.
