As professionals, students are expected to follow dress code any time they are in class or in the Radiology Department. All students wear designated white uniforms, white professional shoes, and white hose/socks. A thorough explanation of rules for uniforms and grooming are addressed at the information session and is explained in depth in the student handbook.
Students are to be neat and well groomed at all times. This includes proper personal hygiene and daily change of uniform. Uniforms are to be clean and pressed. Hair must be styled in a professional manner that is away from the face and above the shoulders at all times when in uniform. Long, unsecured hair is a safety hazard. For the protection of the student technologist and the patient, long hair must be styled in a manner that cannot sweep across a sterile field or patient. Conservative hair accessories may be worn to secure hair. These include small, neutral colored ribbons or bows and exclude large, bright colored ribbons or fashion bows. If a beard or moustache is worn, it must be neatly groomed.
Jewelry should be modest, safe, and practical. A watch and one ring or ring set per hand may be worn. If a necklace is worn it must be secured inside the uniform at all times. Earrings are limited to a small post styles only. No large loops are permitted due to personal safety. Other visible body piercing jewelry is not permitted. Nails must be kept short and clean according the medical center's nail policy (1/4 inch or shorter length). Acrylic nails and nail enhancements are prohibited for patient care givers. Tattoos that are visible outside the uniform are not permitted and must be covered. Wearing perfume or lotion with strong fragrances is restricted in the clinical area due to the fact many patients cannot cope with certain odors.
Grading and Attendance Policy
The AnMed Health Radiologic Technology Program presents a competency based curricula that prepares student for a carer in radiologic technology consistent with program goals and with the Standards of an Accredited Radiologic Technology Program as specified by the Joint Review Committee on Education for Radiologic Technologists.
The program provides students with the number and variety of procedures and the clinical experiences necessary to complete the objectives of the program. Students’ clinical rotations take place at AnMed Health Medical Center and at the AnMed Health North Campus, and may include observations at a satellite campus such as a physician's office offering film-screen processing and other clinical competency skills.
A grade of 90 percent or higher is recommended on each course. A student will not graduate with less than a grade of "C" on any didactic course. Requirements are addressed in each course syllabus and in the list of required terminal competencies that are provided for each student.
Grades are issued every six months. Interim grade reports are issued as deemed appropriate by the director. Students will designate in writing anyone that may be given information about their progress.
AnMed Health will award a certificate of completion and will provide documentation of eligibility for certification after students’ successfully complete 24 months of didactic and clinical instruction.
AnMed Health will also provide a transcript of courses and credits to a college or university if requested by a graduate in writing. Credits awarded or transferred vary per college/universities and are not guaranteed.
A = 94 – 100
B = 85 – 93
C = 75 – 84
D = 70 – 74
F = < 70
If a medical condition prevents the student from attending clinic for an extended period of time, the student's future status in the program will be evaluated and a plan for clinical make-up time will be established.
Depending on the degree of completion of the program at the time of the incident, either a normal or revised clinical schedule will be determined by the clinical coordinator. This is to assure that the student will complete all clinical objectives in an educationally sound manner.
The student must immediately provide the clinical coordinator with written documentation from a physician that a medical condition exists that prohibits the ability to perform clinical procedures for a period of time. The student must submit a written statement identifying his/her desire to take a medical leave.
Upon the student's return, written consent from a physician must be submitted to the clinical coordinator stating that the student is able to participate in clinical procedures to meet program requirements.
Any medical leave or cumulative absences that extend beyond 10 percent of the total contact hours may result in the need for the student to withdraw from the program or he/she may have the option to re-apply for the following academic year.
All hours absent in excess of allotted days-off are reassigned at the end of the program after graduation and prior to writing the national registry. Students may schedule make-up days for excused absences during semester breaks, or possibly on a holiday, if approved by the program director.
Students must attend the entire 24 month program to be eligible to graduate. All objectives for academic and clinical education must be completed. Each student must successfully complete the Program and ARRT clinical competency requirements.
To be eligible for the national certification exam and to become certified, students must meet the eligibility requirements of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). One eligibility issue addressed by the ARRT Rules of Ethics is the conviction of a crime. This includes a felony or misdemeanor, with the sole exception of speeding and parking violations. All alcohol and/or drug related violations must be reported. Additional information is available online to assist applicants in determining their eligibility before applying to the program.
The AnMed Health Radiologic Technology Program does not award a degree in radiologic technology. However, for students who prefer learning in a hospital-based, medical center environment, the program has partnered with Greenville Technical College and Clarion University of Pennsylvania to enable our radiography program graduates to obtain a degree in addition to a certificate of completion from our hospital based program.
Applicants who wish to obtain and associate degree from Greenville Technical College will need to document completion of Phase I and a minimum of 22 credit hours before entering the AnMed Health Radiologic Technology Program. General education classes require a C or better and a cumulative technical GPA of 2.5 or higher. Upon completing the AnMed Health program and meeting ARRT certification exam requirements, students will receive an Associate of Science degree in Radiologic Technology from Greenville Technical College. Information regarding the required credit hour courses is available from Greenville Technical College.
The AnMed Health Radiography Program is also affiliated with Clarion University of Pennsylvania. Clarion students must meet all requirements of Clarion University and receive either a conditional or full recommendation in order to qualify for admission to our program. Upon completing the AnMed Health Program and meeting the ARRT certification exam requirements, students will receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Medical Imaging Sciences. Information regarding this affiliation is available from Clarion University.
A student that has completed the degree requirements outlined by a university that has established a 2+2 option for a BS in Medical Imaging is eligible to apply to AnMed Health for the clinical education component.
