We offer an online, part-time master’s degree Radiologist Assistant program at Rutgers University for radiologic technologist professionals who hold a baccalaureate degree and are certified by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology.


Our Master of Science Radiologist Assistant Program from Rutgers University follows a nationally recognized curriculum that includes clinical and didactic instruction. It prepares the radiologist assistant to be an integral member of the health care team. As an advanced care practitioner, the RA functions as a critical extension of a radiologist performing a variety of cases ranging from invasive and non-invasive procedures while improving productivity and efficiency at a time when the demand for imaging procedures is at its peak.

In our 46-credit program, students develop the skills to become advanced level practitioners, working under the supervision of a radiologist to perform radiology examinations and procedures, evaluating image quality, and making initial observations that are communicated to the radiologist. Program graduates positively impact the delivery of care by ensuring high-quality standards with diagnostic imaging.
