Diagnostic X-Ray Imaging Course Registration
The Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium (ANTHC) and Southcentral Foundation (SCF) are pleased to announce the launch of our new Healthcare Provider Diagnostic X-ray Imaging Two-Phase Training Course. The course is specifically designed for health care professionals (i.e., Physicians, Physician Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Registered Nurses and Community Health Aides) working in rural clinics who take medical X-rays. The purpose of the course is to help providers optimize radiographic image quality while minimizing X-ray exposure to patients and staff.
This new course format consists of two Phases:
1. Phase I provides online lectures that encompass the fundamentals of imaging and radiation safety.
2. Phase II provides face-to-face lectures and hands-on training.
The online lecture portion of the course must be completed prior to the hands-on training.
Note: This course does not meet the 10-hour training requirements for operators of a fluoroscope (which includes C-Arms) (7 AAC 18.420 (c)). This course should not be combined with a 10-hour fluoroscope class with the hopes of operating a C-Arm or fluoroscope.
To notify us of your interest in registering for this course, please complete and submit the form below. You will be contacted by the main course instructor, Robert McClung, within 5 business days.
-Continuing Education Units are available for nurses and physicians. A certificate of completion, copies of the instructors’ credentials, and a course outline will be provided to attendees for continuing education unit purposes.
