Atlantic Cape Partners with Shore Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology
August 22, 2013
Atlantic Cape and Shore Medical Center in Somers Point officially announced this week they have entered into a partnership to benefit prospective radiology students. Through this agreement, students in Shore’s School of Radiologic Technology who successfully complete the two-year program and all prerequisite courses at Atlantic Cape will receive an Associate in Applied Science degree in radiologic technology.
“Atlantic Cape looks forward to a productive partnership with Shore Medical Center in preparing students for careers in the radiologic technology profession,” said Dr. Arthur Wexler, vice president of academic affairs. “We can state with confidence that the graduates of this program will be exposed to the highest quality of both academic and professional education relevant to this field.”
The School of Radiologic Technology provides a full-time, two-year certificate program that teaches students the safe and correct way to take X-rays of the human body. The program is divided between classroom hours and hands-on clinical experience, and program graduates are awarded a certificate of program completion. This certificate, along with an associate degree or higher, allows them to apply for the American Registry of Radiographic Technologists Examination.
Open enrollment to join the School of Radiologic Technology takes place in January and February. Applicants must be at least 18 years of age by the first day of class and have a high school diploma or a GED. Applicants who have not already earned their Associate in Applied Science degree must have completed the following prerequisites at Atlantic Cape with a minimum GPA of 3.0 before applying to the program: Bioethics: Realities of the New Millennium; College Algebra or Precalculus; Comprehensive Medical Terminology; Conceptual Physics; English Composition I and II; General Psychology; Heritage of the Western World I or II; The Human Body; Interpersonal Communications or Public Speaking; and Introduction to Computers.
