School of Radiography
Good Samaritan founded their school of radiography program in 1956, offering individuals interested in a career in radiography the opportunity to receive training through their 24-month hospital-based program. In 2001, the Good Samaritan Radiography Program partnered with Vincennes University (VU) to offer the radiology students the option of earning college credit for their radiology course work. With the addition of a few other courses required for an associate degree, students are able to earn an Associate Degree in Science-radiography. Radiography students must be enrolled through Vincennes University to take advantage of this option.
The Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, Illinois, 60606-3182, (312) 704-5300, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, website: www.jrcert.org.
By integrating academic, technical and human relation aspects of the student’s education, the program prepares the individual to assume responsibilities and duties of an entry-level radiographer. All radiologic didactic courses are taught at Good Samaritan.
The courses required by VU for the completion of the associate degree are through the college and classes are held per their term schedules. Students will register for these as they would for any college course.
Students progress through clinical rotations to gain experience and improve skills by performing various procedures at multiple facilities.
Effective January 1, 2015, graduates must document an associate degree to be eligible for the certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
