WKCTC Radiography Preadmission Conference for Fall 2016 Semester to be Held January 19

Paducah, Kentucky (January 13, 2016) A preadmission conference for West Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges radiography program will be held January 19 at 4 p.m. in the Allied Health Building, Room E105.

WKCTC Radiography Program Coordinator Patty Buchanan will discuss pertinent requirements for the program, including the prerequisite courses, clinical screenings and the selective admission process. Students must attend the preadmission conference to be considered for the fall 2016 semester.

The 22-month program consists of five-consecutive semesters and a curriculum of courses in algebra, anatomy and physiology, communication and other general education courses.

Upon completion of the program, students earn an associate in applied science degree. Graduates may be employed in hospitals, clinics, physician office and commercial firms. A recent survey showed the average median wage of an entry-level radiographer to be $16-$18 per hour.
A radiographer is prepared for x-ray imaging of the human body for diagnostic medical purposes, with an emphasis on radiation protection, quality patient care and imaging procedures.
