Norton King’s Daughters’ Health is a healthcare institution composed of an 86-bed general acute care hospital; a medical office building next to the hospital; a convenient (urgent) care center; and multiple outpatient medical offices located in Madison, Indiana, and the surrounding communities. Norton KDH is responsible for providing a quality and effective education in both the clinical and didactic aspects of the radiology technology program. Norton KDH is also responsible for the integrity and qualifications of all faculty and persons offering input in any capacity affecting the program. Norton KDH is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association-Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (AOA-HFAP). The Norton KDH School of Radiologic Technology does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, disability, marital status, citizenship, national origin, genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by law in administration of the educational policies of the program.

Two-year (24-month) program

The Norton KDH School of Radiologic Technology is a 24-month, six-semester program that prepares its students to become competent radiologic technologists. A radiologic technologist is a highly trained professional who is skilled in the use of ionizing radiation for the quality demonstration of portions of the human anatomy on a computer monitor or fluoroscopic screen. The images produced by the radiologic technologists are used for diagnostic interpretation by a radiologist. Many radiologic technologists work in hospitals, although positions in medical clinics and private offices are available.

The Norton KDH School of Radiologic Technology offers a certificate in radiologic technology. However, in order to be able to sit for the ARRT national registry, all students graduating after Jan. 1, 2015, are required to have, at a minimum, an associate degree. In order for our students to meet this mandate, the Norton KDH School of Radiologic Technology is in an articulation agreement with Ivy Tech Community College.
