What route can/did you take as a radiologist?
I've heard radiology is a trade and I want to know if thats true and what you did to become one, years of schooling, etc. #radiology #radiologist #medicine #healthcare #hospital-and-health-care
Radiologist is an MD degree. That takes 4 years of college, 4 years medical school then a residence. Rad tech is a 1-2 year degree.
Radiologist read X-rays and other scans while Rad techs perform the actual test.
Radiologists are MDs.
Their residency programs are usually 4 years (that's after a bachelor's degree from college).
Radiology is a profession, not a trade, I believe.
A radiologist is an MD who went to 4 years of college, 4 years of medical school, 1 year of internship, 4 years of radiology residency and an optional 1 year of fellowship.
Radiology technologists have either a 2 year associate's degree or 4 year bachelor's degree
