Q&A with Dr. Julie Gill: How tech innovation has created gaps in the radiology student’s education

by John W. Mitchell, Senior Correspondent | December 22, 2017
From the November 2017 issue of HealthCare Business News magazine

HCB News: Is your program looking at doing that?
JG: Yes, we are. We’re just now in the beginning of the communications with our radiologist groups. We have at least seven clinical sites, so our students are throughout Cincinnati. Our clinical coordinator is reaching out to see if that’s a possibility, even if it’s one day. We’re in the infancy and we have a program meeting in a couple of weeks, so the clinical coordinator will report back.

If we include this rotation, we wouldn’t do that before the spring semester in January. But it depends on the radiologists willing to allow the student to sit and perhaps take some time to educate. They’re great teachers and they work in an educational setting because they want to teach.

New Fully Configured 80-slice CT in 2 weeks with Software Upgrades for Life

For those who need to move fast and expand clinical capabilities -- and would love new equipment -- the uCT 550 Advance offers a new fully configured 80-slice CT in up to 2 weeks with routine maintenance and parts and Software Upgrades for Life™ included.

I just see this whole issue of communication as a vital part of our scope of practice through the American Society of Radiologic Technologists. Knowing that communication is vital, not only with radiologists, but with the students. And if you work in a private practice setting, the technologists might do some billing and coding. So being able to understand the procedure and the terminology could affect the patient in both positive and negative ways stemming from proper and frequent communications.
