Can a radiologic tech become a radiologist later on ?

Hi Gray, sadly you would need a medicine degree (5 years plus specialist training). Radiologists are highly trained medics that perform a host of procedures that aren't the traditional x-ray, CT, MRI and ultrasound things you might expect.

Good luck choosing your career, technicians have a pretty good job.

Hello.
Thanks for replying to my question. but what im saying can a radiologic tech go to medical school after he gets his bachelors degree ?
if he gets high marks on his bachelors degree?

Absolutely yes, a lot of universities run graduate medical programs.

ok great to hear it. bc my high school gpa is low so i was unable to study medicine and then specialize in radiology.so i decided to go with radiologic technology and then when i get my bachelors degree i'll go to medical school and study radiology from there XD

Good for you, my GPA was dreadful but got into college and 6 years later I was teaching there. The sky is the limit when you are motivated; school does not inspire that feeling, college can.
