January 4, 2010

Regis College has just become the only institution in Massachusetts to offer radiology technologists the option of pursuing a Master’s of Science degree. Upon completion of the program, that degree should translate into substantially greater professional opportunities, including positions in health administration, health product regulation, teaching and research.

The Regis College School of Nursing and Health Professions is accepting applications from radiology technologists with an associate degree for this new accelerated graduate program and has scheduled an information session for January 12th. Future sessions will take place on March 3 and May 1.

The curriculum includes seven general graduate education courses and five graduate level radiologic science courses followed by specialty track courses in Health Administration or Health Product Regulation.

Evening, weekend, and on-line courses are being offered to accommodate busy work schedules.

Program course work includes advanced level Radiologic Science courses as well as options in Computerized Tomography, Magnetic Resonance or Mammography Radiology.

"Once again Regis College is out in front in meeting students’ need for professional advancement and filling needs in the health care market," said Antoinette Hays, Dean of the School of Nursing and Health Professions. "We are pleased to offer this advanced program in a way that will accommodate the realities of the lives of working radiology technicians."

"The need for this master's degree in radiography is critical," said James Lampka, Director of Medical Radiography at the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College Nursing Program. "National accrediting now requires the advanced degree for people on a leadership track in management or education," he explained.
