The Radiography program prepares students to practice as a proficient, professional radiographer in culturally diverse health care settings. Through courses in patient care and education, radiographic procedures, radiation protection, equipment operation and quality control, image production and evaluation and clinical practice, students progress from the learning phase to the multiskilled, practitioner phase. Students will be prepared with the skills necessary to perform radiologic examinations that produce high-quality diagnostic images to be used in the diagnosis and treatment of patient disease. The program is structured to allow students to earn an Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree and qualify and prepare them for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) board exam upon successful completion of all required courses. The Radiography program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT); 20 N. Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, IL 60606; telephone 312-704-5300; mail@jrcert.org. One of the necessary standards for admission is for the student to submit evidence of physical examination and immunizations as outlined on the Radiography Program Health Assessment form. The health assessment must indicate with reasonable accommodation that the applicant can: * Work eight to ten hours per day performing physical tasks such as sitting, lifting, bending, turning, carrying and moving around the physical environment * Perform fine motor movements needed to manipulate instruments and equipment * Communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, with peers, patients and physicians * Monitor and assess patients' needs using auditory and visual skills * Monitor radiation exposure by visual and auditory mode * Work safely with patients who are susceptible or are in the contagious stage(s) of communicable diseases * Establish and work toward goals in a responsible manner * Work as a member of the health care team to care for patients while delivering ionizing radiation and maintaining high standards of professionalism
