Students are conditionally accepted into the program, and when we say conditionally accepted, that just means that there are some other steps to do before they start classes, such as getting a physical, a background check, making sure that you're CPR-certified, getting your TV-test, and Hep-B immunisations. All of those are at the student's expense.
We currently have 3 base sites, where we will place students. Our students will be placed at one site during their first year, and during their second year, they will switch to a new base site. Currently, our base sites are Genesis Good Samaritan Hospital in Zanesville, South Eastern Med in Cambridge, and Union Hospital in Dover.
We do have additional rotational sites where students will spend a limited amount of time. We have the Genesis Cambridge Healthcare Location, and then we also have the Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville, which is an orthopaedic physician's office.
Students are responsible for getting to the clinic, for providing their own transportation. We do make every possible effort to place students at the site closest to their residence, however, that is not a guarantee. So please be aware that there is a possibility that you might have to commute to your clinical setting.
I will allow you to review the technical standards on your own. This gives a pretty good, detailed list of everything that we're going to be doing as radiology technicians, as it pertains to more of the physical demand of the job. So we do lots of pushing, pulling, lifting, stooping, reaching, we walk a lot, because sometimes we have to take a portable machine to the floors in the hospital, so we certainly have a very physical job.
As previously stated, we are accredited through the JRCERT, and if you have any communications or concerns about the program, you can certainly contact them at their information listed here.
The purpose of the program is to prepare our students for professional careers as radiology technicians. This will give you a good idea of all the different areas that we will be teaching in our curriculum. These are the program goals and student learning outcomes. When somebody graduates from our program, they're going to be able to do all of these objectives or outcomes. It might seem like a very short list, but in each class, we certainly break this down even more, into very detailed objectives.
You can see our completion rate, our exam pass rate, and our job placement rate for the past 5 years. We very much pride our program on having a fabulous exam pass rate.
