1 Kilgore College Radiologic Science Program Admission Packet Dear Prospective Student: Thank you for your interest in the Radiologic Science Program at Kilgore College. The Radiologic Science Program is an Associate of Applied Science program offered on the Kilgore campus of Kilgore College. Students enrolled in this program are prepared to assume a professional role in the field of Radiography. The program is accredited through SACS, and as such is recognized as an accredited educational program in Radiography by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the Texas Department of State Health Services (TDSHS). Upon successful program completion and meeting the specified ARRT and TDSHS standards, the graduate will be eligible to take the national certification examination for Radiography offered by the ARRT, and will be eligible for a temporary Medical Radiologic Technologist certificate from the Texas Department of State Health Services. A passing score on the ARRT examination will grant the graduate ARRT Registry status and eligibility for certification as a Medical Radiologic Technologist by The Texas Department of State Health Services. The program is a 24-month program providing clinical and didactical (classroom and laboratory) education in the field of Radiologic Science. The program begins a new class each Fall semester. There is a limited number of applicants admitted to the program due to limited space in the classroom and available clinical assignments. To be considered for admission to the Fall class application materials should be submitted by March 15. If after reviewing this packet you have questions, please feel free to contact me. Ursula Dyer, MS,RT(R)(CT) Radiologic Science Program Director (903) To be considered for admission to the Radiologic Science Program, the student must first be admitted to Kilgore College. If not currently enrolled at Kilgore College, the following is required: 1. An Application for Admission to Kilgore College form must be completed and submitted. The following is the link to KC application information: 2. An appointment with the Health Sciences Counselor (Counseling Office (903) ) REV 6/2010

3 Background and Drug Screening Prior to final admission into the Radiologic Science Program each applicant is required to satisfactorily pass both a Drug Screening and a Background Screening in accordance with the Kilgore College Health Science Programs Criminal Background Check and Drug Screen Policies. A copy of the Kilgore College Health Science Programs Criminal Background Check and Drug Screen Policies are available upon request. The Background Screening and Drug Screening are the sole financial responsibility of each student. The cost is approximately $54 for the background screening and $16 for the drug\screening. The results must be returned to Kilgore College Radiologic Science Program by the company completing the screenings. The student must use the vendors selected by Kilgore College. THE SCREENINGS ARE PERFORMED ONLY ON SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WHO ARE ACCEPTED TO ENTER THE PROGRAM. Entry is contingent upon the screening results. If a disqualifying history is identified in the results of the screening, the student will be removed from the admissions list and will be required to submit a Pre-Application Review to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists. Additional information about the Pre-Application Review process can be found on the following webpage: https://www.arrt.org/ Select Ethics from the left side of the page, then click Pre-Application Process Students who are required to submit a Pre-Application Review to the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists due to a potentially disqualifying background history must present to the Program Director an official letter from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists stating that the student is an eligible candidate for the certification exam. Only then will the student be admitted to the program or placed on the current list of applicants requesting admission to the program. This will depend on the timing of when the letter is received by the Program Director in relation to the start of a new class. A positive drug screen disqualifies student from admission to the program. Employment upon graduation is dependent on the rules and regulations of the employing agency and Kilgore College does not ensure employment.

8 KILGORE COLLEGE RADIOLOGIC SCIENCE PROGRAM PROGRAM MISSION AND GOALS The mission of the Department of Radiologic Science at Kilgore College is to prepare qualified imaging technologists. Through didactical learning, laboratory preparation, and clinical experiences, students will develop professional knowledge, ethical patient care and technical skills. GOALS: 1. To provide students with a broad educational background by using a variety of educational resources and experiences. 2. To provide a strong undergraduate curriculum based on current needs. 3. To develop in students the professional attitudes and ethics required of Radiologic Technologists. 4. To educate students in the merits of continuing professional development. 5. To prepare students to graduate with an Associate of Applied Science Degree and for employment in the Radiologic Technologist field. 6. To prepare students to pass the national certification examination for radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). 7. To provide the community with competent and educated Radiologic Technologists. 8. To promote independent thinking and life-long learning. 9. To present state of the art medical imaging to Radiologic Science students. 10. To meet and exceed medical imaging educational standards as required by the State of Texas. Revised Aug 2007 Clinical Philosophy The Radiologic Science Program was developed under the philosophy that clinical experience should be in combination with academic preparation. In the classroom, the student will learn theoretical information necessary to develop and perform as a technologist. In the laboratory, this information is used to practice patient care and procedures. In the clinical environment, the student will have the opportunity to perfect the technological skills and progressively develop professional skills and independence so that they are ready to enter the profession following program completion. The ultimate goal of the program is to prepare students to become outstanding staff radiologic technologists who have the potential to become effective supervisors, instructors, or specialty technologists. The ability of graduates from a Radiologic Science program to enter the profession and to assume the role and responsibilities of staff technologists depends on the quality of their academic and clinical experience. This program provides students opportunity to gain proficiency in diagnostic radiology. In order to achieve this proficiency, students are integrated into the normal operation of a radiology department. Initially, close supervision is essential; however, the quicker the student learns to function under limited supervision, the easier it is for the student to become an independent technologist upon program completion. Students are integrated into the department's work schedules with scheduled rotations through all work centers. During the first semester of clinical education, students must be supervised closely and contribute little toward the workload of the department. Each semester, the student should gain more experience, knowledge, and confidence, so that during later semesters of enrollment in the program the student perfects his or her clinical skills and prepares for the transition from student to technologist by assuming more patient care responsibility.
9 RADIOLOGIC SCIENCE PROGRAM GRADING POLICIES Final course grades are calculated by specifications made in each course outline. To satisfy degree requirements, students are required to MAINTAIN a C average, in all RADR courses. This average must be maintained for the student to remain eligible to be enrolled in the program and eventually attain program completion. The grading scale is as follows: Academic (Didactical) Course Grading Scale: A B C D Below 67 F Clinical/Practicum Course Grading Scale: A B C D Below 70 F Failure to achieve a C or better overall grade in any RADR course will result in dismissal or suspension from the program. However, this does not mean that a student is ineligible to register for other courses at Kilgore College. NOTE: A grade of "C" or higher is required in all math and science and computer courses. The grading scale in these courses is in accordance with the current Kilgore College Catalog.
