The program has evolved from the initial curriculum which required only six months of clinical training, through the following programs:
- One-year certificate program in X-ray Technology (Emory University Hospital sponsored)
- Two-year certificate program in Radiologic Technology (Emory University Hospital sponsored)
- Two-year associate degree program in Radiologic Technology (Emory University sponsored)
To the current
- Three-year baccalaureate degree program in Medical Imaging (Emory University sponsored)
Regardless of the program that you attended or the year of your graduation, you are still considered a part of the Emory Radiology family and we would like to hear from you. Please take a moment to update your personal information, let us know how you are doing, and send us a current picture for our Alumni Photo Gallery.
We would like to invite you to contribute to the Reba Taylor Education Fund. Many of you were Reba's students and we hope that you will honor her memory by helping us build a scholarship fund that will allow others to seek a career in the profession that she loved so much.
Reba Taylor was Director of the Emory University Program of Radiologic Technology for 37 years from 1958 to 1995. Miss Taylor was an active member of her local, state, and national professional organizations. She served as the Executive Secretary of the Georgia Society of Radiologic Technologists and as Southeast Regional Director of the American Society of Radiologic Technologists for many years. She was loved and respected by the more than 600 radiologic technologists that she taught. In recognition of her teaching abilities and the contributions she made to hundreds of Emory students and to the radiologic technology profession, the Department has created the Reba Taylor Education Fund. Proceeds from this fund will be used to enhance the Medical Imaging Program and to create scholarships for deserving students. Contributions can be made to the "Reba Taylor Education Fund, Emory University" using the pledge form or electronically.
