Agreement With Susquehanna Health Supports Radiography Program

Pennsylvania College of Technology has entered into a clinical-affiliation agreement with Susquehanna Health for the 2007-08 academic year that provides for use of the hospitals’ radiology departments for the clinical practicum of students enrolled in the college’s associate-degree radiography major.

As part of the agreement, Susquehanna Health provides $21,000 to help support clinical supervision of approximately 20 radiography students who complete their 24-month clinical practicum rotations at the health system’s three affiliated hospitals: Muncy Valley Hospital, Divine Providence Hospital and The Williamsport Hospital & Medical Center.

“Since 1979, Susquehanna Health and its member hospitals have acknowledged the valuable clinical assistance radiography students provide to patients in the departments of radiology,” said Robert Slothus, director and associate professor for the college’s radiography program.

The funding will be used to augment the Penn College radiography program’s clinical director’s salary. Cletus G. Waldman, radiography clinical director and assistant professor, provides 12-month, full-time radiography student supervision in the Susquehanna Health hospitals.

“The Penn College radiography faculty and staff appreciate the continued yearly support Susquehanna Health offers to our students and college,” Slothus said.
