Are you looking for an amazing and challenging medical career working with others who have the same passion to help people?
Do you already have, or are you working toward, an Associates or Baccalaureate Degree and are interested in an exciting career in the medical field? Or do you want to obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in a medical career?
If so, an exciting career as a registered radiologic technologist may be for you.
Radiologic technology combines advanced technology in medical imaging and your compassion and drive to help others, and offers a rewarding career working within the medical community, explained Jim Coffin, RT(R)CT, ARRT, Imaging Services Director for Trinity Health. “A registered radiologic technologist applies extensive knowledge of physics, human anatomy, and ever-advancing medical imaging technology, to create images that help diagnose disease. The technologist works under the supervision of a radiologist, a medical doctor who specializes in interpreting medical images and performing radiologic procedures.”
The Trinity Hospital School of Radiologic Technology, which is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), takes applications every January for up to six students to be enrolled in its 24-month program. “We are looking for dependable, highly motivated, caring people who are interested in pursuing challenging academic studies combined with hands-on training in medical imaging and patient care,” Coffin said.
This outcome-based program integrates classroom education and clinical experience to turn out competent and successful radiographers. “Our students benefit from both hospital and clinic teaching experiences, state-of-the-art equipment, and having a highly skilled staff of registered radiologic technologists to supervise and guide their skills,” Coffin said. “The small class size maximizes patient contact and allows for close supervision during this amazing educational process. Graduates of this program are eligible to take the ARRT registry exam, and, when successful, are recognized as professional and competent entry-level radiographers.”
