Bachelor of Science (BS)
Southern Vermont College in Bennington, VT
The Radiologic Sciences program at Southern Vermont College is committed to quality education and excellence in providing competent entry‐level Radiologic Technologists who function as productive members of the healthcare team. Through a competency‐based program, graduates will demonstrate proficiency in the application of current and developing technologies, use effective verbal and written communication, think critically, apply appropriate radiation safety measures, and safely administer ionizing radiation to patients at hospitals, clinics, doctor’s offices, and other healthcare facilities. Radiography is the art and science of using radiation as a diagnostic tool in performing radiographic examination. Radiologic Technologists apply the knowledge of anatomy, physiology, positioning, radiographic technique, and radiation biology in performing medical x‐ray examinations using established radiation protection standards in limiting radiation exposure to patients, themselves, and others. As essential members of the healthcare team, radiologic technologists must be able to communicate effectively with patients, other healthcare professionals, and the public. Radiologic technologists must be compassionate, competent, and use problem‐solving and critical‐thinking skills in meeting the needs of their patients. Radiologic technologists are employed in various healthcare facilities, including hospitals, specialized imaging centers, and private physicians’ offices. They may also be employed as imaging department administrators or educators. The salaries and benefits are generally very competitive with other healthcare professionals and vary according to experience and geographic location. The need for sophisticated imaging management and leadership to respond to the clinical, organizational, and fiscal demands facing the healthcare industry supports the creation of advanced educational and skill development opportunities for imaging. Future changes to the profession include minimum degree requirements for Radiologic Sciences as well as Imaging Education and sub‐specialty areas. The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) recently recognized the need for advanced degrees within the profession by adopting a new Bachelor of Science Radiologic Sciences (BSRS) curriculum. The BSRS curriculum is an expression of content that enhances entry‐level education and supports multiple, post‐primary specialty certifications as well as a transition to education and management in advanced clinical practice. The new BSRS curriculum emphasizes education in critical thinking, human diversity, sustainability, and written and oral communication. Students in the BSRS degree program will engage in topics with more depth and breadth, resulting in a broader knowledge base and skill set than the entry‐level radiographer. The Radiologic Sciences program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
