The mission of the King's Daughters' Health (KDH) School of Radiologic Technology is to provide a quality education in the radiographic sciences, using a current, sequential, 24-month competency-based clinical/didactic method of instruction. This prepares our graduates for a professional career as a radiographer and to sit for the ARRT (American Registry of Radiologic Technologists) national registry, which is accomplished only by integrating this new knowledge and skill with the KDH mission: To improve the health of our patients through care, service and education.
King's Daughters' Health is a not-for-profit healthcare institution composed of an 86-bed general acute care hospital; a medical office building next to the hospital; a convenient (urgent) care center; and multiple outpatient medical offices located in Madison, Indiana, and the surrounding communities. KDH is responsible for providing a quality and effective education in both the clinical and didactic aspects of the radiology technology program. KDH is also responsible for the integrity and qualifications of all faculty and persons offering input in any capacity affecting the program. KDH is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association-Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (AOA-HFAP). The KDH School of Radiologic Technology does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability or sex, in administration of the educational policies of the program.
Two-year (24-month) program
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology is a 24-month, six-semester program that prepares its students to become competent radiologic technologists. A radiologic technologist is a highly trained professional who is skilled in the use of ionizing radiation for the quality demonstration of portions of the human anatomy on a computer monitor or fluoroscopic screen. The images produced by the radiologic technologists are used for diagnostic interpretation by a radiologist. Many radiologic technologists work in hospitals, although positions in medical clinics and private offices are available.
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology offers a certificate in radiologic technology. However, in order to be able to sit for the ARRT national registry, all students graduating after Jan. 1, 2015, are required to have, at a minimum, an associate's degree. In order for our students to meet this mandate, the KDH School of Radiologic Technology is in an articulation agreement with Ivy Tech Community College. Please see the Admissions page for more information.
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology has been nationally accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Due to this accreditation, graduating students are eligible (upon successful completion of the program and upon acquiring an associate's degree) to take the national registry examination of the ARRT. Upon passing the ARRT registry exam, graduates will be able to use the credentials of RT (R)(ARRT) after their name.
The KDH School of Radiologic Technology is accredited by the JRCERT because of its commitment to and maintenance of the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography as set forth by the JRCERT.
