A number of allied health students continued Roosevelt University’s strong track record of earning competitive clinical placements at top area hospitals. Callie Barnum, Miguel Gonzalez, Beatriz Martinez, Nancy Saad and Laura Toscano were accepted to Northwestern Memorial Hospital’s clinical training radiography program and Kayla DeBauche and Natascha Filian were accepted to Northwestern’s clinical training nuclear medicine program. The radiography students will graduate from their clinical training program in 2020 and the nuclear medicine students will graduate in 2019.
Roosevelt is 1 of 3 different university affiliates with students competing for only 10 available radiography seats each year at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Roosevelt is 1 of 8 universities with students competing for only 6 available seats each year in the nuclear medicine program. “Students already holding associate’s or bachelor’s degrees are also eligible to apply,” says Prof. Kelly Wentz-Hunter, Roosevelt’s Allied Health Director. “It is therefore very impressive that half of the available radiography seats and one-third of the available nuclear medicine seats at a top clinical site like Northwestern Memorial Hospital were filled by Roosevelt students.”
In addition to the BS in Radiography and the BS in Nuclear Medicine Technology, Roosevelt offers bachelor of science degrees in the following allied health programs: Diagnostic Medical Sonography, Histotechnology, Medical Technology, and Radiation Therapy Technology. Roosevelt is also accepting applications for a new degree program this fall - the BA in Health Science Administration. Graduates of this program will demonstrate an understanding of the organization, structure and performance of health care systems and will apply organizational and management theories and principles in a variety of health care and medical settings.
