Radiologic Technology Mission
The mission of Baker College’s radiologic technology program is to enable qualified students to develop into competent and professional entry-level radiographers who are prepared to successfully sit for the ARRT examination and acquire gainful employment. We believe that this is done through exercises in critical thinking, varied clinical experience, the encouragement of universally responsible behavior and foundations in guiding radiologic principles.
As an essential component of Baker College’s academic health programs, the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree program has the following goals:
- Students will perform competently.
- Students will critically think and solve problems effectively.
- Students will communicate effectively.
- Students will develop and grow professionally.
- Students will become successful graduates of the program.
Customer Satisfaction Policy
Baker College is an institution focused on student satisfaction. To that end, any concerns or complaints regarding the radiologic technology program (including classroom cleanliness, facilities concerns, and program policies) can be sent to the attention of the director of the program on the appropriate campus. The director will investigate the complaint, consult with all parties involved and provide a response as soon as all information has been evaluated. The program director will inform the dean of the College of Health Science of the complaint, and an investigation will be conducted with appropriate actions to ensure a resolution.
If resolution cannot be reached at the level of the program director, the problem will follow the chain of command, beginning with the dean of the College of Health Science, followed by the chief academic officer/vice president of academics of the campus, the president of the campus and finally the president of the Baker College system.
