School Catalogue

The School of Radiography at Sharon Regional is based on the long-term commitment of the Health System to educational programs in the healthcare 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 healthcare 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 program strives to provide the highest quality education and patient care that stresses compassion, competency, respect, and dignity of all people.
