Program Philosophy: The concept of professional technical education, regardless of the form such education may take, is firmly based in the belief that the capability of the individual to contribute as a member of the society is related not only to the distinctive capabilities inherent in each person, but also to learned knowledge and to the development of those capabilities.

The entire operation of the Southern Regional Technical College Program of Radiologic Technology shall be directed by a very real concern for the individual student, and recognition that individual advancement, through the acquisition of knowledge and skills, enhances the ability of the student to meet his or her needs as well as those of the society.

Consistent with the philosophy, the administration and faculty of the school take the position that students are here to access a means for personal and professional growth and development. The curriculum, objectives and program policies are intended to promote this position.
