The MassBay Community College class of 2022 has achieved a perfect pass rate on the national American Registry of Radiologic Technologist licensure exam.
Among those in the class is Megan Keeffe of Arlington, who works at Cambridge Hospital.
Individuals who pass this exam are fully qualified to enter the profession and work as radiologic technologists. In addition to passing the exam, all seven MassBay graduates were offered jobs in the field.
“It’s a proud moment for these hard-working professionals, for their families, and for us at MassBay,” said Karen Hansen, radiologic technology program director, in a July 25 news announcement. “This exceptional group of students successfully navigated both web-based didactic classes while completing over 1,600 radiography hospital hours during two years of Covid. They rose to the challenge of this unprecedented time in health care, showing tremendous perseverance and true dedication to the profession.”
Also in this class, including their hometowns and place of employment are:
Kelsey Champagne of Mendon, undecided;
Nikki Chin of Brookline, Tufts Medical Center;
Ashley Gorham of Upton, Brigham & Women’s Hospital;
Isaiah Simpson of Holliston, MetroWest Medical Center;
Jordyn Sullivan of Dedham, St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center; and
Brian Tavares of Dedham, Tufts Medical Center.
MassBay’s associate degree in science, radiologic technology program is offered during the day in a full-time, 21-month sequence of five consecutive semesters starting in the fall; or as a part-time evening flex format of eight semesters starting in the spring.
“Students who graduate from MassBay with an associate degree in radiologic technology have been well-prepared for the profession by the rigorous, up-to-date curriculum and by our compassionate, knowledgeable and experienced instructors,” said Lynne Davis, dean of health sciences. “Students further benefit from clinical rotations at the finest hospitals, clinics and imaging centers in our region, which provide them with the opportunity to work with imaging professionals, patients and state-of-the-art equipment. We are proud, but not surprised, but the outstanding achievements of the class of 2022.”
She congratulated the class and the entire MassBay radiologic technology team of Karen Hansen, Bill Cote and Karen Steinhoff.
