SCF Radiography Program Earns Reaccreditation
(Bradenton, Fla., November 10, 2010) — The State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Radiography Program has been awarded full eight years of continued accreditation from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology, the only agency recognized by the U. S. Department of Education for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery radiography educational programs.
The new report recognizes SCF’s Radiography Program for maintaining eight years of accreditation that was granted in 2006, meaning that the program will not require another evaluation until 2014.
SCF's Radiography Program is a fully accredited, limited enrollment program and graduates earn an Associate in Applied Science or Associate in Science degree. The program's curriculum combines classroom knowledge with simultaneous clinical experience where students can apply their newly learned skills, improving student performance and success in the field.
Radiographers take X-rays, process digital images, assist physicians during advanced radiographic procedures, determine safe exposure limits and provide appropriate patient care during procedures.
Graduates are eligible to take state and national licensing examinations. There are currently 23 students enrolled in the program.
