Radiologic Technology Department

Effective on June 30, 2016, the Radiologic Technology Program is being phased-out. As a consequence, Drexel University will not accept any applications for admission to the AS or BS programs in Radiologic Technology.

Overview

The Radiologic Technology department at Drexel University offers two programs, an Associates program and a Bachelors program, to help you get started with or advance your career in radiology.

Radiologic technology is a fast growing, fast pace, technical career that offers individuals the ability to interact with patients while using advanced technical skills and knowledge. Radiology is the front-runner in technical advancements in both patient diagnosis and intervention. This career is instrumental in helping physicians diagnose and intervene within the disease process.

The Associate of Science degree is the first step in entering this exciting career and exposes the student to the diagnostic world of Imaging, allowing them to travel through the diagnostic radiology department, operating room and surgical departments; learning required information and standards for performing essential radiographs. The program incorporates hand-on skills, clinical training with state-of-the-art equipment utilized in the field of Imaging today.

Students that take the Bachelor's of Science program will advance their education and skills to become an Invasive Cardiovascular Technologist. These students will become and elite member of the cardiovascular team and participate in the technology advancements associated with heart catheterization, pacemaker insertion, stent placement and of course saving lives.

Hundreds of College of Nursing and Health Professions students- both undergraduate and graduate- crossed the stage at the University’s 120th Commencement Exercises on June 13. As our graduates donned their caps and gowns and learned how to affix their hoods, we asked them to step aside to let us know what’s coming next for them in their lives. Grads: we handed you blank whiteboards and you covered them with your hopes, plans, and tons of personality! We received a wide variety of responses, from the entertaining to the quite serious, the humorous to the brutally honest.

Creative Arts Therapies graduate Ashley Slade will be spending more time with family. Barbara McHale, who graduated with her Master’s in Nursing, just received a promotion at work. A large number of our grads reported that they plan to start working on their DNPs, PhDs, Master’s degrees, and MBAs. A handful are on their way to Disney and others will travel internationally, on vacation or for service work. Health Services Administration graduate Debra Hoffman will be taking some Sunday afternoon naps. Fellow HSAD classmate Jeff Daniel heads excitedly into “Career & Marriage,” as his whiteboard shows. A number of our grads are on the hunt for their next great career opportunity. Some are getting married, having children, or even “ruling the world!”

To view the full “What’s Next?” album, visit our Facebook page, www.facebook.com/DrexelCNHP. Good luck to all of the newest alumni of the College of Nursing and Health Professions! It’s been a pleasure to teach you. We hope you’ll keep in touch and remain active in the Dragon community. You make us proud!

The College of Nursing and Health Professions’ Radiologic Technology Program recently provided their students with a unique trauma simulation experience, blending knowledge from the classroom with the fast-paced feel of an Emergency Room that is aligned with Drexel’s hands-on approach to learning. Students were able to go beyond the books and experience what it is really like to work as radiologic technicians. Participating students Michael Pidutti and Danielle Dougherty share their thoughts on the experience:

Michael Pidutti

michael width=As a second year student in the Radiologic Technology Program at Drexel, I’ve seen multiple trauma cases and have participated as much as possible alongside residents and techs.  These experiences have proven to increase my overall knowledge of trauma cases and have improved my critical thinking skills, and I think the Drexel Radiologic Technology Program takes this into account and realizes the importance of hands-on experiences for students. 

When they put five of us in a trauma simulation room with a screaming patient, blood and broken bones, and an impatient doctor, hands-on critical thinking was key. To prepare us for the emergency trauma simulation, each student was designated the role of a nurse, technologist, or an ER aide. We were given the projections ordered by the doctor and quickly had to assess the severity of the situation, organize our thoughts and performance agenda, and work as a team.   Our efforts proved a success as treatment to the trauma patient involved organization, compassion, speed, and efficient communication.  Each student left the simulation with a sense of accomplishment; a true reflection of the program and the experience.

Danielle Dougherty

danielle width=My experience in the trauma simulation was fascinating. As a Rad Tech student, normally one would think that we would not be as involved as nurses or doctors are in responding to a trauma. However, taking multiple X-rays in such a rushed and fast-paced atmosphere is quite important and needed in Radiography. The trauma simulation was a great experience and will aid my work in future clinical settings. The blood, the pain, and the neediness from the patient are all essential factors I had to take into consideration during the simulation. I learned to always keep calm and perform my job to the fullest extent. I benefitted greatly from this exercise because I will use these tactics in the field now that I have learned and had the chance to experience this kind of situation hands-on.
