Empire State College Teams with Glens Falls Hospital on Radiography Program
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment opportunities for radiographers are expected to surpass the average rate of job growth through 2018, with a projected increase of 17 percent across the nation and 9 percent in New York. To help meet the growing demand, SUNY Empire State College and the Glens Falls Hospital School of Radiologic Technology have formed a partnership to ensure aspiring radiography students can fulfill new educational requirements the state has set for them to be licensed.
The Glens Falls Hospital program has been in existence for more than 60 years preparing radiographers to serve Warren, Washington, Saratoga and surrounding counties, and for placement across the country in hospitals, imaging clinics and physician offices. Graduates may specialize in diagnostics, CAT scan, MRI, interventional and cardiac catheterization and mammography.
