Radiological Sciences Discipline Advisory Group Final Report. Kentucky Allied Health Project.
Kentucky Council on Public Higher Education, Frankfort.
Radiological sciences education in Kentucky and articulation within this field are examined, based on the Kentucky Allied Health Project (KAHP), which designed an articulated statewide system to promote entry and exit of personnel at a variety of educational levels. The KAHP model promotes articulation in learning, planning, and resource utilization. The following fields are covered: radiologic technology, nuclear medicine technology, radiation therapy technology, medical physics and health physics, and radiological health. Information is provided on educational programs in radiological sciences fields, accreditation, and certification. The Radiological Sciences Discipline Advisory Group (DAG) developed a curricular component matrix to compare curricula and provided the basis for planning for articulation between 24-month certificate radiography programs and 24-month associate-degree programs. The DAG also updated the American Society of Radiological Technology 1976 curriculum guide and addressed entry-level clinical procedures. An articulation model was also developed that illustrated all possible sequences of transfer with the radiological sciences in Kentucky, and transfer agreements between Kentucky colleges were negotiated. The use of the Program Evaluation and Review Technique is addressed and transfer agreements and maps showing schools offering radiological sciences programs are appended. (SW)
