Radiography Program Director
After 26 years as a sonar technician in the U.S. Navy, I decided to train for a career in the medical field. While exploring my options, I discovered the Radiography Program. The Mayo brand and reputation for excellence drew me to apply, and being trained by the best of the best helped me put into action what I learned in the classroom.

A day in the life
Explore what a radiologic technologist does
Radiography is an exciting and highly rewarding career. A vital part of the diagnostic team, radiologic technologists are immersed in the heart of the action, operating a variety of imaging equipment to produce medical images (radiographs). They work directly with patients, not only operating X-ray machines, but also explaining the type of procedure and accurately positioning the patient to achieve the best image possible.
