RadTechCSI Radiologic Technology Program

  
On May 11, 2018, the CSI Radiologic Technology Program will be graduating the Class of 2018, the program's 16th graduating class since its inception back in 2002. During this period, the program has enrolled 189 students.

The program is nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), which provides peer evaluation and assuring the public of quality professional education in the radiologic sciences. Graduation from a JRCERT accredited program assures eligibility to practice in all 50 states and competence to manage the delivery of radiation, a potentially dangerous substance, and possess the knowledge, skills, and attributes to provide safe, high quality patient care.

The program prepares graduates for entry level careers as American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) Registered Technologists in Radiography. Upon completion of the 22-month educational-training period (4 regular semesters plus an 8-week summer session), students earn their Associate of Applied Science degree and become clinically competent to perform clinical radiography procedures on sick and injured patients. Most Registered Technologists in south central southern Idaho are graduates of the CSI program.

The 72-semester credit curriculum (22 academic, 24 didactic, 26 clinical) is designed around a rural delivery model which provides an extensive classroom/lab experience before entering the clinical education setting. Students rotate through 3 out of 11 JRCERT approved clinical affiliates for a total of 1170 clinical education hours. The program is affiliated with 11 clinical affiliates throughout south central Idaho and all students have 3 clinical education courses. Everyone must rotate through St. Luke's Magic Valley Hospital because it is the largest comprehensive clinical setting available.

The program's resources are extraordinary including a state of the industry Computed and Digital Radiography teaching-learning laboratory located in HSHS 178 which includes energized and simulated x-ray machines. Students practice radiographic positioning together without making energized exposures on each other. Actual imaging is done on tissue equivalent "plastic" phantoms.

Graduates are passing the ARRT examination in radiography with flying colors and gaining employment throughout the region's health care facilities, including employment in Boise, Pocatello and Salt Lake City. According to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Wage and Salary Survey 2016 the national average salary for Registered Technologists in Radiography was $56, 071. Program graduates are continuing their education on the job and at the University of Utah Medical Center and Weber State University and getting ARRT certified in other imaging modalities like CT, MRI, Mammography, Ultrasound, etc., which results in even higher salaries. Many are also taking advantage of articulation agreements the program has with Lewis and Clark State College and Boise State University and earning their baccalaureate degrees in imaging science. The program is very successful with a high program completion rate, first time ARRT examination pass rate, and employment rate.

Because there are more applicants than can be selected for 12 educational-training positions each year, admission into the program is competitive. Preparation involves 2 phases. Phase I involves the accumulation of points based on the point check list that provides points for academic courses taken and other activities that qualify for points, such as having taken the CNA or EMT-Basic course, the Introduction to Allied Health course, etc. Phase II involves interviewing and selecting 12 students from the top 24-point getters from those who apply to get into the program by the June 1st annual application deadline.

FryFriday, May 25, is Don't Fry Day

It's natural to want to get out in the sun during warm summer days. It should also be second nature to take steps to protect your skin from the sun when you go outside.

According to the American Cancer Society, ultraviolet (UV) rays - from the sun and other sources like tanning beds - are the #1 cause of skin cancer. Too much exposure can also cause sunburn, eye damage, and premature wrinkles. But shielding your skin with clothing, broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher, and staying in the shade can help lower your risk.

Take these steps to stay sun-safe:

Cover up: When you are out in the sun, wear clothing and a wide-brimmed hat to protect as much skin as possible. Protect your eyes with sunglasses that block at least 99% of UV light.
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher: Reapply at least every 2 hours, as well as after swimming or sweating.

Seek shade: Limit your direct exposure to the sun, especially between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., when UV rays are strongest.
Avoid tanning beds and sunlamps: Both can cause serious long-term skin damage and contribute to skin cancer.

Choosing the right sunscreen: While you should use sunscreen every day of the year, it's even more important during the summer, when the days are longer, the sun is stronger, and it's easier to spend more time outdoors. When choosing sunscreen, read the label before you buy. US Food and Drug Administration regulations require the labels to follow certain guidelines:

Choose a sunscreen with "broad-spectrum" protection. Sunscreens with this label protect against both UVA and UVB rays. All sunscreen products protect against UVB rays, which are the main cause of sunburn. But UVA rays also contribute to skin cancer and premature aging. Only products that pass a test can be labeled "broad spectrum."

Choose a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. The SPF number is the level of protection the sunscreen provides against UVB rays. Higher SPF numbers do mean more protection, but the higher you go, the smaller the difference becomes. SPF 15 sunscreens filter out about 93% of UVB rays, while SPF 30 sunscreens filter out about 97%; SPF 50 sunscreens filter about 98%, and SPF 100 filter about 99%.

"Water resistant" does not mean "waterproof." No sunscreens are waterproof or "sweatproof," and manufacturers are not allowed to claim that they are. If a product's front label makes claims of being water resistant, it must specify whether it lasts for 40 minutes or 80 minutes while swimming or sweating. For best results, reapply sunscreen at least every 2 hours and even more often if you are swimming or sweating.

Find more information about Don't Fry Day and skin cancer online at the American Cancer Society.

LaVar"My Evolution in the Great Basin" By Lavar Steel


My Evolution in the Great Basin - LaVar Steel (1934-2016)
Don't miss this one-time-only memorial exhibition featuring the art of longtime CSI art faculty member LaVar Steel. The show features two- and three-dimensional works from the private collection of his wife, Marian Steel, and will showcase many never-before-exhibited pieces.

LaVar was the first CSI art faculty member hired by Dr. James Taylor in 1966, and he spent the early part of his career teaching most of the art classes offered by the college. LaVar and other art faculty saw the educational value in sharing art with students and the local community through gallery shows, field trips, and studio visits.

LaVar was a master of mediums, just as comfortable with a watercolor brush as he was with chisel, generating a lasting legacy of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, and more. LaVar continued working at CSI, serving as Chair of the Fine Arts Department and President of the Department Chairs during his career. He retired in 1997 and remained active as an artist until his death in 2016.

The exhibit can be viewed any time during normal Herrett Center hours.  Admission to the gallery is always free.
