Mercy Hospital Springfield’s School of Radiologic Technology and Southwest Baptist University have partnered in a joint sponsorship to offer an Associate of Science in Radiography (ASR) at Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences of SBU. The first class began in July.
Mercy Hospital Springfield’s School of Radiologic Technology program was started in 1954 by the first registered technologist in Springfield, Sister Mary Victoire Corcoran, RSM.
“With the new program titled Mercy School of Radiologic Technology of Southwest Baptist University, radiography students will receive the same quality clinical education along with an enhanced didactic curriculum,” said program director Joan Hedrick, M.Ed., R.T.(R)(M). “At the end of the six-semester program these students will obtain an associate of science degree in radiography making them eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technology’s registry and become certified in radiography.”
With additional courses offered at Mercy College of Nursing and Health Sciences of SBU in Springfield, students can also receive a bachelor of science in health science. The College is at 4431 S. Fremont St. in Springfield.
