Radiologic Technology Student Selected to Participate in Leadership Program

Recently, senior Radiologic Technology student, Summer Kruckman, was selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists’ (ASRT) Student Leadership Development Program (SLDP).

Every year, two students from each state are chosen to participate in this prestigious and highly selective program which takes place over a three-year period and helps to develop students into leaders within the Radiologic Technology profession.

“I am very honored and grateful for this opportunity,” said Kruckman, “I believe this program will help me grow not only as a leader but as a professional and I hope to apply what I learn to my future career in radiology.”

To be considered for the program, students must be currently enrolled in an accredited medical imaging or radiation therapy program, be a current ASRT student member, be a current student member of their state-affiliate radiology society, complete an application and essay, and obtain a signed letter of recommendation from their program director.

Throughout the three-year program, Kruckman will attend education sessions covering topics such as governance, advocacy, strategic planning, and leadership principles. She will also have the opportunity to attend an annual governance and House of Delegates meeting in June 2024 which will expose Kruckman to the process of dialogue and voting for topics to be implemented into the ASRT’s Bylaws, Standards, and Policies that Radiologic Technologists around the country adhere to.

“The SLDP is a wonderful opportunity for students like Summer to embrace the governance process that guides our profession. Additionally, she will be matched with a radiology mentor, who will guide and counsel her as she develops her own unique leadership style. At the end of Summer’s three-year commitment, she will forge her path and be a voice representing over 350,000 Registered Radiologic Technologists in the United States” said CCC’s Radiologic Technology Program Director, Lori O’Leary.

Clovis Community College’s Radiologic Technology program utilizes a multifaceted approach in educating students to become professionally competent radiologic technologists. Over five semesters, students learn using state-of-the-art equipment in both lab and clinical settings. Upon completion of the program, students are fully prepared to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) certification exam. In the last five years, 94% of students were employed in the Radiologic Technology profession within 12 months of graduating from CCC.
