ROSCOMMON – Kirtland Community College will host an information meeting Wednesday, April 6, on its main campus near Roscommon to help those persons interested in radiography learn more about this exciting career field.
John Skinner, director of radiography at Mid Michigan Community College in Harrison, will be on hand to explain the program and answer questions at the information meeting at 11 a.m. on April 6 in Room 123 of Kirtland’s Instructional Center (INS).
The radiography program is a collaborative effort offered by Kirtland and MMCC, with graduates being able to obtain an associate’s degree in applied science. The program is designed to prepare graduates to function as members of the health team in hospitals, clinics, government and military installations, industry and public health.
In addition to classroom instruction and laboratory practice, students receive on-the-job practical education at Grayling Mercy Hospital or West Branch Regional Medical Center.
Currently, about 3,200 students attend a variety of certificate and two-year degree programs at Kirtland’s four locations – near Roscommon and the Michigan Technical Education Center (M-TEC) in Gaylord, as well as sites in Grayling and West Branch – with the college’s service area including all or parts of Crawford, Oscoda, Ogemaw, Roscommon, Otsego, Kalkaska, Missaukee, Gladwin and Alcona counties, and the surrounding areas.
