Philosophy of the School
The pursuit of technical knowledge today must go beyond the acquiring of mere facts. The program at the Crestwood Medical Center School of Radiology aims at the formation of the technical person with respect to his/her goals and the good of society.
The School will offer the student opportunities for his/her development in the ever-changing field of Radiologic Technology by maintaining modern equipment and up-to-date methods of procedures and qualified faculty.
In keeping with this philosophy, the School endeavors to provide the students with the opportunity to:
- Conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the dignity of their profession
- Provide services with consideration of human dignity and the uniqueness of the patient, unrestricted by considerations of race, color, religion, sex, age, disability, status as Vietnam-era or special disabled veteran or any other characteristic protected by state, federal or local law
- Make every effort to protect all patients and personnel from unnecessary radiation
- Accept responsibility and judiciously protect the patients’ right to privacy and maintain all patient information in the strictest confidence
- Prepare well for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) examination
- Continually strive to improve their knowledge and skills by participating in educational and professional activities and share the benefits of their attainments with their colleagues
