Follow-Up Survey of the 1988-1989 Radiography Graduates of Middlesex Community College.
A graduate follow-up survey evaluated student outcomes for the radiography program at Middlesex Community College/Middlesex Memorial Hospital (Connecticut). The program prepares students for entry-level employment as radiographers. The questionnaire, based on input from program officials and respondents, was mailed to 14 1988 and 1989 graduates. Based on a 100 percent response, the results indicated overall student satisfaction with the curriculum, employment, and registry examination results. Graduates suggested some changes: more efficient use of positioning laboratory time; increased trauma rotation; and a stronger relationship between technologists and students. Graduates of the program are achieving program objectives and are satisfied with the educational process. It is recommended that the study be done on a continual basis to substantiate the results. Accreditation requirements should then be satisfied as part of the program's on-going system of self-evaluation. (Twelve tables, 13 references, and 3 appendices are included: (1) survey questionnaire; (2) questionnaire cover letter; and (3) radiologic technology program goals and objectives.) (NLA)
