School of Radiography at Sharon
About the School of Radiography at Sharon
The School of Radiography Program is based on Sharon Regional Health System's long-term commitment to educational programs in the health care field. Education in the radiologic sciences began in the 1950s when the hospital was approved for a one-year program. In 1959, it was approved for a two-year program.
Radiography is the art and science of using radiation to provide images of the tissue, organs, bones and vessels that comprise the human body. These images may be recorded on film or displayed on a video monitor. A radiographer is an essential member of the health care team. The body part of the patient must be accurately positioned, and only the amount of radiation necessary to produce a quality image must be applied. These are two important aspects of the responsibilities of the radiographer.
The Sharon Regional Health System School of Radiography provides education for students in the radiologic sciences to be qualified entry-level radiographers. The program strives to provide the highest quality education and patient care that stresses compassion, competency, respect and dignity of all people.
The School of Radiology at Sharon Regional Health System is accredited by The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology. JRCERT is dedicated to excellence in education and to quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiation and imaging sciences. JRCERT is recognized by the United States Department of Education to accredit educational programs in radiography and radiation therapy. The JRCERT awards accreditation to programs demonstrating substantial compliance with these standards.
