Nearly 150 Department of Radiologic Technology & Medical Imaging students, faculty, alumni, Advisory Commission Members, City Tech administrators, and representative of other organizations with which the department has articulation agreements attended an April 4, 2012 reception marking the launch of the department’s new Bachelor of Science in Radiological Science Program.
Among those joining in the celebration were Bronx Community College Radiologic Technology Program Director Virginia Mishkin, Hostos Community College Radiologic Technology Program Director Charles Drago, Bronx Community College Nuclear Medicine Program Director Alfred Romito, Bellevue Hospital Center School of Radiologic Technology Program Director Peter Castagne and Director of Radiology Services Veronica Bugenis, and radiologic technology program directors Kenneth Martinucci and Sergeo Gilbaud from SUNY Downstate Medical Center.
“The RadTech program at City Tech,” says Professor Mary Alice Browne, department chair, “now offers a comprehensive baccalaureate degree program in radiological science which provides students with opportunities for professional and personal development through advanced studies in the field of medical imagining and treatment. The baccalaureate program recognizes the rapidly changing technological advances in the field of medical imaging and the increasing demand for multi-skilled radiographers. Essential for enhanced clinical practice and advanced modality skills, the program provides the better insights and applications necessary for supervisory and managerial positions. The students, faculty and staff of the department are grateful to all City Tech administrators and others who worked diligently to make the new program a reality.”
