Student Organizations in Allied Health
earning a degree is your ultimate goal, college is about a lot more than
attending classes and doing homework.
College is a time to get involved in activities that help you develop
leadership skills, learn more about your chosen career and make a difference in
your community. As a medical diagnostic
imaging major, get involved in extracurricular organizations related to your
field of study, such as:
Association of Radiologic Technology Students (ARTS)
The Association of Radiologic
Technology Students, or ARTS, helps you develop and strengthen professional contact
within the health care field. One
of the group’s key activities is organizing and participating in Radiologic
Technologist Week. Contact Jennifer Wagner or Denise Orth for information.
Society of Student Sonographers (SSS)
The SSS helps to develop and
strengthen student contact with professionals within the health care field with
emphasis in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. As a member, participate in a wide
range of professional and educational activities, and help plan social events
for fellow students. For more
information contact club sponsors, Brenda Hoopingarner or Christa Weigel.
Kansas Society of Radiologic Technologists (KSRT)
Radiologic Technology students are encouraged to join the Kansas Society of Radiologic Technologists and have an active voice
in this state-wide professional organization. Student members participate at
the KSRT annual convention as well as the student seminar. There is also
