Diagnostic Assistant
(Radiologic Technology Degree Completion)
2-year AAS degree

The Diagnostic Assistant degree is designed for Radiologic Technology students in partnership with the Mercy/St. Luke’s School of Radiologic Technology.

The two-year radiologic technology technical program is taught through Mercy/St. Luke’s School of Radiologic Technology. The program begins each summer and has a separate application process. There are prerequisite college courses required prior to this application.

Students can complete prerequisite courses at Kirkwood to become eligible to apply for the Mercy/St. Luke's School of Radiologic Technology program. After they complete a portion of the program, students can transfer those credits back to Kirkwood and receive a Diagnostic Assistant associate of applied science degree if the prerequisite courses were taken at Kirkwood Community College.
