Midland College Radiologic Technology Program reopens
The Midland College Radiologic Technology Program has been resurrected after 13 years in response to a “pressing need for skilled radiologic technologists in the region,” according to Midland Health, which partners with MC on the initiative.
Today, the class of 11 students will embark on the program, participating in classroom and laboratory sessions at the Radiology Department in the F. Marie Hall Outpaitent Center (formerly West Campus). Students will also fulfill their clinical requirements at Midland Memorial Hospital, Diagnostic Imaging Associates and West Texas Orthopedics.
Midland Health said it currently has openings for 20 full-time and part-time radiologic technologist positions, which underscores the immediate need for this skill.
“We are extremely excited to reintroduce the Midland College Radiologic Technology Program,” said Kelly Wright, Director of Radiology at Midland Health. “The program’s revival underscores our commitment to bridging the gap between educational institutions and the ever-evolving needs of the medical field. This initiative aligns with our mission of leading healthcare for greater Midland.”
