This study employed a correlational design using relationship studies, which involved 144 radiologic technology interns. Purposive sampling technique was utilized to determine the respondents of this study. The researchers use a self-made questionnaire consisting of open-ended questions for the first part and close for the second and third parts. Data was treated using frequency, mean, percentage, Spearman rank order correlation coefficient, standard deviation and t-test for independent means. Based on the results, 1) majority of the respondents are female; 2) overall, the respondents have a very good knowledge towards prevention of communicable diseases; 3) most of the respondents have a highly positive attitude towards prevention of communicable diseases; 4) the knowledge of the respondents towards prevention of communicable diseases does not vary when grouped according to gender; 5) the attitude of the respondents towards prevention of communicable diseases varies when grouped according to gender. The female respondents have highly positive attitude than the male respondents; 6) the knowledge of the respondents can reflect their attitude. Having a good knowledge can result to a positive attitude towards prevention of communicable diseases. This shows that variations in the attitude are possible even though all of them came from one (1) institution and have already received education.
