The Crestwood Medical Center School of Radiology assumes that entering students are adults who have developed mature behavior patterns, positive attitudes, and conduct above reproach. Students are treated in accord with this belief.
All Crestwood Medical Center School of Radiology students will abide by the following dress code:
Any student who cannot adhere to the dress code may immediately be dismissed from the program.
If the Crestwood Medical Center dress code is changed, modified or altered in any way, the School’s dress code may be changed to reflect what becomes policy for the Crestwood Medical Center.
All Crestwood Medical Center School of Radiology students must maintain academic honesty in all aspects of their training. Academic honesty is actions and conditions that encourage scholarship, subject mastery, intellectual growth and development.
Academic dishonesty is defined as:
The grade of “F” will be given to any student found guilty of academic dishonesty.
All radiologic technology students are in the process of learning skills that come as second nature to a qualified practitioner. The student technologist, however competent, may still run across a “first”. As we all realize each new patient brings new demands and challenges for the qualified practitioner and especially the student technologist.
For this reason and others, “all repeated radiographs shall be made in the presence of a qualified practitioner*” no matter what the status (Junior or Senior) of the student or the level of initial supervision (indirect or direct).
*The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) defines qualified practitioner as registered by the ARRT or possessing a state license.
Because Alabama does not require a state license at present, “Qualified Practitioners” must be in good standing with the ARRT.
Formal student counseling is performed periodically as part of each student’s educational process. Formal counseling sessions are documented and signed by the student and program director.
Informal student counseling is performed when either the student and/or an instructor deem it necessary. Informal counseling may or may not be documented as to the specific situation.
The Crestwood Medical Center School of Radiology is seeking JRCERT accreditation. JRCERT Standards are included in each School Handbook printed.
Enrolled students are made aware of all School policies as written in the School Handbook as well as the JRCERT Standards.
Each enrolled student has the right to petition the School as to a complaint of non-compliance to any JRCERT Standard. The School will respond, either verbally or in writing, as to the complaint in a timely manner.
If the student is not satisfied with the Schools response, he/she has the right to contact the JRCERT directly. The address and telephone number of the JRCERT is printed in this handbook.
All complaints and their resolution will be kept on file in the School office.
It is the responsibility of each student to meet the deadline for the completion of the ARRT application. Students missing the application deadline must follow ARRT rules as to when the next examination may be taken. All fees, postage, photographs, etc. are the responsibility of the student.
