Harlem, New York, January 14, 2019 — The Touro College and University System announced today its acquisition of the newly named Touro College Medical Imaging Program at Harlem Hospital. The school was acquired from NYC Health + Hospitals, the largest public health care system in the United States.
“Current health care needs including the country’s rapidly aging population and the increasing reliance on imaging to make accurate diagnoses are demanding a higher level of competence needed by technologists. The latest expansion in the Touro College portfolio will assist students in advancing their careers and remaining up-to-date with constant developments in the imaging field,” said Dr. Alan Kadish, president of the Touro College and University System.
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, employment of radiologic and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) technologists is projected to grow 13 percent until 2026, with the annual salary estimated at nearly $60,000.
The School’s two-Year Associate of Applied Science (AAS) program in radiologic technology blends classwork and clinical rotations in state-of-the-art centers. Once graduates pass the National Licensing Exam, they can enroll in a wide range of advanced courses offered including MRI Imaging, Computer Tomography (CT}, mammography and interventional radiography.
The Touro College School of Imaging Sciences is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT} and the New York State Department of Health.
