LCCC’s Radiography Program to host an open house
CHEYENNE, WYO. – Laramie County Community College’s Radiography Program will host an open house from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 13, in the Science Center, room 119.
Students and faculty members will be available to showcase the recently remodeled radiography lab and career opportunities in radiography. Guests will experience live X-ray demonstrations, learn about the various types of radiography equipment, and interact with professionals currently working in the radiography field. Individuals interested in learning about the Radiography Program and the role of a radiographer are encouraged to attend. Guests will have an opportunity to meet current students, faculty members and the HSW Pathway Coordinator. All guests are encouraged to wear face coverings.
LCCC’s radiography program has been an active and successful program since the college opened in 1969. The program currently has a 5-year history of a 100 percent job placement rate and a 100 percent national certification pass rate, with 98.6 percent of students passing on their first time. The program has a state-of-the-art energized lab that includes three conventional radiography units, wireless direct radiography image receptors, two mobile fluoroscopic units, and one portable radiography unit which allows students a hands-on learning experience.
Graduates of the program are career ready or prepared to continue their education for advanced credentialing. Former students have gone on to be successful radiographers, in addition to textbook authors, physician assistants, and educators.
Radiographers use technology to perform imaging exams, including X-rays, CT scans and MRI procedures. In the LCCC Radiography Program, students learn skills for safely using radiation (X-rays) in the diagnosis of disease under the direction of a physician.
