Concord, CA. Oct. 3 /PRN Newswire/--Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts (GAMA) now offers the newest and most comprehensive radiologic technology program available, designed to prepare its graduates for a rewarding career in the technologically-advanced field of medical imaging.  Selected students will have the opportunity to prepare for both National and State of California certification exams which will make it possible to work as a radiographer in medical imaging facilities creating x-ray images, C.T. scans, angiographic studies, and to experience diverse responsibilities such as imaging in the surgical environment and trauma settings.

The program utilizes the most recent curricular standards as defined by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists and the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology and is in accordance with the learning outcomes utilized by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and the State of California Department of Public Health.

Teaching methodologies include interactive instruction, computer-enhanced learning modules, Powerpoint presentations and live demonstrations in a setting which incorporates classroom learning and simulated lab experiences.  Student interns further enhance their learning as they rotate through various medical imaging departments to obtain clinical experience and instruction under the direction of radiologic technologists and radiologists.

GAMA is a private school and students are carefully selected based on their abilities to excel in the field of diagnostic imaging and also by their desire to work in a medical environment that is centered on patient-care. 

GAMA is dedicated to contributing to the medical community. In addition to providing high-quality radiologic technologists, we also assist employers by offering classes for existing radiologic technologists in subjects such as fluoroscopy, venipuncture, radiation protection and special procedures. These courses are offered at reduced rates for technologists employed by the program’s affiliated clinical education centers.

At the present time there is a shortage of medical professionals.  Local clinical facilities will enjoy a constant stream of erudite technologists to augment their work force and the community will benefit from the resulting quality care they will receive from these exceptional radiologic technologists.
