Pre-admission conference for KY radiography program to be held Jan. 19

PADUCAH, KY (KFVS) -

If you're looking to gain entry into the field of radiography, now is your chance.

A pre-admission conference for West Kentucky Community and Technical College's 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 outline the requirements for the program, including prerequisite courses, clinical screenings, and the selective admission process.  

Students must attend the pre-admission 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, physiology, communication, and other general education subjects.  

A radiographer is prepared for x-ray imaging of the human body for diagnostic medical purposes.  

A recent survey showed the average median wage of an entry-level radiographer to be $16-$18 an hour.  

For more information call Patty Buchanan at 270-534-3431 or email her at patty.buchanan@kctcs.edu.
