The St. Clair County Community College radiologic technology program is making quite an impressive impact on the field. For the sixth year, the program continued its impressive 100 percent first-time passage rate on the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists, a national registry exam that grants certification in the field. Recently, eleven SC4 graduates passed the 2019 exam, bringing the total number of SC4 graduates passing on their first try to 61 since the program began at the college in 2012.
According to SC4 Dean of Health Sciences Jenny Giles-Voss, the excellent training and preparation provided to students ar credited to the expertise and dedication of Professor of Radiologic Technology Sandra Geliske and Program Director Monica Rowling. Voss added, “A perfect record like this is incredibly rare.” SC4’s radiologic technology associate degree program – which received an impressive maximum eight-year accreditation award from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology in 2016 – prepares students to become radiologic technologists by combining imaging technology with patient care skills to create quality radiography images. The program has a 24-month, competency-based curriculum that includes practical experience degree programs, two bachelor’s degree programs, and four hospital-based programs with experiences in hospitals and imaging centers.
