17 Best Radiologic Technology Schools in the Philippines for 2018


(Updated as of 8:14, 5 Sept., 2018) A number of highly rated colleges and universities offer programs in radiologic technology. Find out about school rankings for the 17 best radiologic technology schools in the Philippines for 2018.

Schools were ranked according to the recent radiologic technology licensure examination in 2018 plus other factors including level of accreditation and faculty-student ratio to find out which radiologic technology schools have the most valuable undergraduate programs to produce batch of examinees with high passing rates.

The basis of the ranking of best radiologic technology schools are founded by 5 criteria:

First, the overall yearly school board performance (40%). These results are weighed in and based on the total number of examinees in each examination period. In connection to this, the second criteria, the number of examinees (20%), is also scrutinized as large number of examinees make the passing percentage rate very hard to maintain.

The third criterion is the ranks of top performing examinees (10%). Examinees who made it in the list of topnotchers give their schools high scores based on their ranks as consideration.

Level of accreditation (20%) is another thing to consider in the ranking system, as a high accreditation status from governing bodies such as the Philippine Association of Colleges and Universities Commission on Accreditation (PACUCOA), Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU), Accrediting Agency of Chartered Colleges and Universities in the Philippines (AACUP), or Commission on Higher Education (CHEd) recognize the schools as Centers of Excellence and Development with strong and sound curricula and programs related to the course.

The fifth criterion for the best schools is the faculty student ratio (20%) as studies show the significance of low student-faculty ratio increasing the success rate of examinees achieving high passing rates in licensure examinations.
