Mid Michigan College’s Radiography Program team has been hard at work to determine more effective methods of supporting student success and ways to expand program offerings. Recent results speak for themselves.
One hundred percent of 2018 radiography graduates passed their certification exam on their first attempt within six months of graduation. Mid’s Radiography Program team researched and implemented additional review sessions, exam prep resources, and review software into the students’ final semester, and will continue to do so in the future.
One hundred percent of the twelve 2018 radiography graduates were employed in the field prior to graduation. The majority of these students gained employment from the program's affiliated clinical sites where they completed the hands-on portion of their training. Students complete their clinical education in area hospital radiology departments.
“Mid’s Imaging Science Programs continue to grow in popularity with students, and we pride ourselves on our student success rates,” noted LouAnn Goodwin, Director of Imaging Sciences at Mid.
Mid is also a member of the Michigan Radiologic and Imaging Science (MiRIS) Consortium. The MiRIS Consortium was developed as a collaborative agreement in 2011 with six member schools, and has now evolved to include nine community colleges. The MiRIS Consortium allows community colleges to combine resources and offer programs that they would not be able to offer alone due to a lack of resources.
Mid has been able to add Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computed Tomography (CT) programs, and now plans to add an Electroencephalogram (EEG) associate degree program through the MiRIS Consortium.
“The MiRIS Consortium allows all partner schools to offer a wider range of programs, fill local workforce needs, and give students more program options close to home,” shared Goodwin.
Imaging Science career opportunities are expected to increase upwards of 10% through 2026 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, making Mid’s Imaging Science Programs great options for local students to prepare for a successful career close to home.
