Hi Savanna, you can research this by using Google - Just type in "top ten medical schools for radiology" Are you looking to become a Radiologist as a Doctor with a medical degree, or to do you want to be a Radiology Technician? If so, Community College or a trade school is where you want to look. Good luck!

Darlene’s Answer

I recommend having informational interviews with current people in the position you want. Ask for 30 minutes of their time to ask about what they do, what they like about it, what they don't like, where they got their degree, how they found their job, etc. Ask everyone you know and everyone they know if they can refer you to their radiologist for an informational interview. You can also cold call places. Most people like to help and are flattered to be asked. You can have the conversations on the phone or in the office, if the person is willing. Talk to several to get balanced feedback.

Good luck!

Benjamin’s Answer

Do you mean radiology technician school, undergraduate, medical school, or radiology residency program?

Probably that depends on geography and the "culture" of individual programs.

If you have an academic advisor, consider reaching out to them. Google to find forums and other resources.

Richard’s Answer

In the US, to apply to medical school, you need a bachelor's degree. Any 4-year university should suffice.

Pick a college that suits your personality and a major that interests you. You will need to get good grades in college in order to apply for medical school. At the medical school I attended, the average GPA is reported to be 3.85, so even one or two B's can hurt your chances of acceptance.

Medical school takes 4 years to complete.

At the end of medical school you can apply for a residency in Radiology.

Rachel’s Answer

Any 4 year university should be able to provide you with all of the premed requirements (1 year biology, 1 year inorganic chemistry, 1 year organic chemistry + labs, physics, calculus, and biochemistry). I would look at each school individually and see which fits your personality and desired major (does not have to be science) best.
