Individuals interested in studying to become radiologic technologists through the new St. Vincent College of Health Professions (SVCHP) Radiology Program must apply by Jan. 31. St. Vincent Anderson is one of three St. Vincent hospitals to serve as clinical training locations. A pre-admission conference is scheduled for Jan. 23 from 4 to 6 pm at the Anderson Center Auditorium, 2210 Jackson St.
The SVCHP Radiology Program serves to educate and train qualified individuals to obtain the appropriate certification required for entry-level employment in radiography.
The past fall, after nearly five years in development, the radiography program of SVCHP earned certification by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES), a private, non-profit, independent accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. As a result, St. Vincent is the only hospital-sponsored program in Indiana to award Associate of Applied Science academic degrees.
The SVCHP Radiography Program is a full-time, two-year, on-site program that has a presence in 10 St. Vincent Health ministries throughout the state with St. Vincent Anderson serving as a clinical program location along with St. Vincent Indianapolis and St. Vincent Kokomo. Students in the program learn medical imaging and how the clinical practice links to the spirit-centered culture, integrated mission and core values of the ministry.
"Modern healthcare is a team effort and having quick access to reliable images is imperative for patient care today," said Dr. Jeffrey Rothenberg, executive director of Medical Education and president, St. Vincent College of Health Professions. "Achieving the highest level of accreditation through by ABHES is a significant accomplishment and central to the vision of the college."
