Radiographic Imaging (Consortium Program)This program is available at the Start here, finish there location.
As a member of the Northwest Ohio Allied Health Education Consortium, Clark State College is able to bring an associate degree in Radiographic Imaging to Clark State students.This consortium allows Clark State students to complete their general education and basic classes through Clark State at one of its campuses or online. Students are also enrolled at Rhodes State. Technical courses are taught by Rhodes State faculty through distance learning via online format. Students will need to travel to the Rhodes State campus in Lima for skills lab instruction and hands-on practice approximately once a week. Clinical learning experiences will be scheduled in regional healthcare facilities. A very important aspect of the Radiographic Imaging consortium program is that these clinical seats are reserved for qualified Clark State students living in Clark State's service area.
The technical courses in the Radiographic Imaging program start each year in fall semester (August). Seats for the program are filled with qualified applicants. Clark State applicants for this program must also apply to Rhodes State online. Students should indicate they are applying to the Northwest Ohio Allied Health Education Consortium and that they are from Clark State by checking the appropriate boxes at the top of the application. Seats are limited so students are encouraged to submit documentation of meeting qualification requirements to Rhodes State in a timely manner.
The Radiographic Imaging Program provides an education in the technical skills and knowledge necessary to safely use radiation to produce high-quality images of internal structures and body systems to provide physicians with diagnostic information on their patients.Upon successful completion of the program, the student will be awarded an Associate in Applied Science degree from Rhodes State College and is eligible to take the certifying examination in radiography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Graduates of the program find employment as radiographers in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, and physicians' offices.
Notice to Prospective or Current Radiographic Imaging Students
Students who have ever been convicted of a prior felony and/or some misdemeanors may not be able to participate in clinical education experiences at some hospitals or other clinical sites, therefore preventing them from completing the program. A criminal record may also prevent a graduate from obtaining a license or certificate in a chosen health-care profession. Students admitted to a program containing off campus clinical/practicum experiences will be required to submit to drug screening.
All applicants accepted into The Allied Health Consortium must be able to meet the technical standards of the program of study for which they enroll. Students are asked to review the standards and to sign a form certifying that they have read, understand, and are able to meet the standards. Students are to be provided the technical standards information upon selection of their program of study. The Rhodes State Allied Health Department's technical standards are linked here and available on their web site.
