Computed Tomography Admission
To qualify for the Computed Tomography program, applicants must be certified as either a Radiologic Technologist or a Nuclear Medicine Technologist. However, because of current Florida state statutes, Nuclear Medicine Technologists who complete this program and pass the National Registry Exam still may not practice Computed Tomography as a stand-alone procedure in the State of Florida. Other than becoming a Radiologic Technologist, attending an approved Computed Tomography program is the only way for a Nuclear Medicine Technologist in Florida to acquire the required Computed Tomography exams needed to sit for the National Registry.
Applications for St. Vincent's program must be received no later than three months prior to the program start date in order to be considered. Applicants must be a U.S. citizen or a lawful permanent resident to be eligible for acceptance. Qualified applicants are contacted to arrange a personal interview. Acceptance is based on an evaluation of prior education and work experience, personal and professional references, and personal interviews. Each applicant is evaluated using a point system.
Classes are generally limited to six students. At the conclusion of the admission process, the six applicants with the highest scores are chosen for the new class. Applicants are notified regarding acceptance into the program following completion of the interview process, but typically no later than 45 days prior to the scheduled start date.

American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' Ethics Requirement
Before consideration for admission, any applicant who has been involved in a criminal proceeding or who has been charged with or convicted of a crime must file a request for a pre-application review with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) in order to obtain a ruling on the impact of the situation on their eligibility for certification and registration. A charge or conviction of, a plea of guilty to, or a plea of nolo contender (no contest) to an offense that is classified as a misdemeanor or felony constitutes a conviction for ARRT purposes. This includes situations in which the result is deferred or withheld adjudication, or suspended or withheld sentence. Military court-martial must also be reported.
The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists' determination of eligibility for examination will determine the applicant's eligibility for consideration for admission to the program. The final order must be included with the Application for Admittance to the Computed Tomography Program. Potential applicants must contact the ARRT directly:
