Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs and Areas of Study

Schoolcraft program code #PAC.0P279/PAC.00279

The Mammography post-associate certificate is designed for those students that are registered Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).  The program consists of didactic courses and professionally supervised clinical training performed at a local clinical site. 

The Mammography program provides the knowledge that will enable students to enter the workforce as entry-level mammography technologists. The program prepares the post-graduate technologist to use mammography to detect the presence of a tumor or lump, and other abnormalities of the breast.  Mammography uses low-energy radiation to produce images of the breast that play a key role in the early detection of breast cancer. 

The post-associate certificate is awarded upon successful completion of 9 credits.  Upon completion of the program, students are eligible to take the ARRT post-primary certification examination in mammography.  This adds the Mammography credential (M) to their ARRT certification.

Mission:

The mission of the Schoolcraft College Mammography post-associate certificate program is to serve the community by providing an educational setting where students will receive the advanced training and knowledge necessary to enter the profession as entry-level Mammography technologists.  Graduates will exemplify qualities of excellence in patient care, professionalism, safety, and ethical behavior thereby enhancing the healthcare experience of the patients we serve.
