Program Director’s Message
Greetings and welcome to the Radiography Program Web site!
Our program was established in January 1982, and our first class of students graduated in December 1983. Initially, there were two clinical sites: Winter Haven Hospital and AdventHealth Lake Wales. Over the years the program has grown to include Bond Clinic, AdventHealth, Heart of Florida, South Florida Baptist Hospital, Gessler Clinic, Bartow Regional Medical Center, Radiology and Imaging Specialists, Watson Clinic, Lakeland Regional Health, Poinciana Medical Center, and Releve Sports Medicine as clinical sites.
The Radiography Program is nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRC/ERT), 20 N. Wacker Dr., Suite 2850, Chicago, Il. 60606-3182, (312) 704-5300, web address: jrcert.org. The program was awarded the maximum 8-year accreditation with the next review scheduled for 6/1/2025.
Our graduates are currently employed in a variety of radiography-related fields and earn excellent wages. We are fortunate to have very experienced faculty and clinical preceptors to guide our students in their academic and clinical experiences.
If you are interested in pursuing a rewarding, versatile, and challenging career, consider joining us today! On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students of the Radiography program, we welcome you to our program and to an exciting and challenging profession in a progressive health sciences field.
