Eight students completed their radiologic technology certificates and graduated on Tuesday, June 11. The program is a 22 1/2 month associate degree program based at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, where the graduation ceremony was held. The students were also eligible to walk at the Crafton Hills commencement on May 24.
The rigorous program requires students to have a 2.5 grade point average in all prerequisite courses and interview for one of the eight spots before being admitted.
Camron Baze (Redlands), Angelyne Brown (San Bernardino), Jennifer Jensen (San Bernardino), Erik Lee (Upland), Leanna Lopez (San Bernardino), Elizardo Melendez (Rialto), Jessica Merlo (San Bernardino), and Hanh Tran (San Bernardino), are all now eligible to take the examinations prepared by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Radiologic Health Branch of the State of California including Fluoroscopy, and Mammography (optional).
“We’re so proud of the students in this program,” said Melissa Hunyh, program director. “In addition to their class studies, they receive didactic and supervised clinical training, equaling 40 hours a week. It takes focus and dedication to complete.”
The Radiologic Technology program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
