All radiologic technologists work in medical offices, hospitals, or community colleges. Radiologic technologists are an important part of the medical support staff that keep hospitals and private medical offices functioning from day to day. Overall, polls show that most radiologic technologists enjoy their jobs and like knowing that they are helping people. At the same time, these same radiologic technologists that were polled claim that their workplace is very stressful, they do not enjoy their coworkers, and they feel as though they are underqualified to be working in the medical field. This may be a foreshadowing of the idea that over the next decade, the minimum education needed to become a radiologic technician will jump from an associate's degree to a bachelor's degree. Despite this, over the next decade it is expected that 61,000 new radiologic technician jobs will be added into the economy due to the rising age of the baby boom population. This is a 28% increase based on the amount of current jobs available, which is a faster growth rather than the national average for all jobs. This is also a higher growth rate than most other jobs, when looked at on an individual basis.
