The School of Radiography Program is based on Sharon Regional Health System's long-term commitment to educational programs in the health care field. Education in the radiologic sciences began in the 1950s when the hospital was approved for a one-year program. In 1959, it was approved for a two-year program.
Radiography is the art and science of using radiation to provide images of the tissue, organs, bones and vessels that comprise the human body. These images may be recorded on film or displayed on a video monitor. A radiographer is an essential member of the health care team. The body part of the patient must be accurately positioned, and only the amount of radiation necessary to produce a quality image must be applied. These are two important aspects of the responsibilities of the radiographer.
The Sharon Regional Health System School of Radiography provides education for students in the radiologic sciences to be qualified entry-level radiographers. The program strives to provide the highest quality education and patient care that stresses compassion, competency, respect and dignity of all people.
Applicants to SRHS, School of Radiography are selected in accordance with federal and states laws without regard to color, race, creed, age, sex, religious affiliation or national origin. Disabilities that are not related to bona fide occupational qualifications will not be considered as deterrents to selection of persons.
Applications with transcripts will be received only from September 1 through February 1.
