    Im planning what i want to do for the rest of my life and my friend pointed me to the school she graduated from for Radiography. Its a small school owned by a local hospital. They offer a 2-year Radiography course resulting in an AAS degree. Does anyone know if this is a path i should seriously consider, or is an Associate's not enough to make it anywhere?
    The school is the Lancaster General College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Im new to the whole medical side of things, but i have always had high Science and English grades, I've just never considered using that in a medical field.
    Thanks for your time :D

    This forum is principally populated by radiologists and perspective radiologists. Although I'm sure we could offer you some sage advice about radiography, I believe that www.auntminnie.com has a dedicated forum for your topic. I suggest you post your question there.

    Shoot X-rays for $50000/year (I'm guessing... don't know salary for sure) or read films for $400000/year (avg salary I've seen just cruising the net.)

    Both sound great, but I'll take the latter... ;)
