on

The radiologic technology program at the University of Cincinnati Blue Ash College is earning important recognition from statewide and national organizations.

As part of a banner spring for the program, the Ohio Society for Radiologic Technologists (OSRT) has named Heather Moore as the Technologist of the Year. Moore is a professor and program director for the radiologic technology program. “I was flattered and humbled just to be nominated, it’s an honor,” says Moore. “You work hard and try to project a positive image. I’m glad people see that I care about our profession and that I strive to advance it.”

Moore has over 25 years of experience in the field and has been at UC Blue Ash for the past 12 years. She is currently pursuing her PhD in educational studies at the University of Cincinnati.

Along with Moore’s honor, two other UC Blue Ash faculty members were elected to the only two open positions on the OSRT Board of Directors, and one of their students filled the only student slot on the board. Julie Gill, chair of the Allied Health Department and Tiffany Roman, professor of radiologic technology, will each serve on the board. Stephanie Bachman, a freshman at UC Blue Ash, will represent radiologic technology students across the state in her role as student director for the board.

To top off the busy and successful spring, the program recently earned the maximum eight-year continuing education accreditation status from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology.

“Being awarded the maximum accreditation status speaks to the high-quality of our program and to the commitment of our faculty and staff to continuously work on professional development and identifying best practices for teaching and practicing radiologic technology,” says Julie Gill, chair of the Allied Health Department at UC Blue Ash. “I believe it also shows that our students can be assured they will receive an excellent education that prepares them well for their professional career.”

The radiologic technology program at UC Blue Ash offers an associate degree with an education that includes classroom, laboratory and clinical experience. Most graduates work in hospitals, medical centers or imaging centers. The college also offers an online bachelor’s degree in radiation science for students or working professionals who want to advance their education and potentially move into teaching or a management role.
