This study used a descriptive-survey method of research with a population of 152 radiologic technology freshmen of De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. They were selected using purposive sampling technique. A self- made questionnaire, divided into two parts, was used. The first part contained the demographic profile of the respondents including the sex and monthly family income. While the second part was composed of the four factors associated with the career choice that was ranked by the radiologic technology freshmen students. The data gathered were subjected to statistical treatments such as frequency, percentage, mean, Mann-Whitney U-Test, and Kruskal-Wallis test. Based on the findings of the study, the following conclusions are drawn: 1) Most of the respondents are female and the greater number of the respondents have a monthly family income ranging from P100,000 to P249,999; 2) The respondents ranked physical environment as the highest influencing factor in the career choice followed by personal choice, parent’s influence, and lastly peers; 3) Sex is not significantly associated to the factors associated with the career choice of the respondents.
