Tucson, AZ (PRWEB) February 9, 2010 -- Medical training school, Pima Medical Institute, a leading private medical career college, announced today the offering of its first bachelor's degree program, the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences. This online program is the first bachelor's degree program offered by the school, and is also the first bachelor's degree approved by Pima Medical Institute's accrediting body, the Accrediting Body of Health Education Schools (ABHES).

The BSRS degree offered at Pima Medical Institute is a completion medical training program designed to help current radiologic technologists attain their goals of professional advancement in radiography as health care managers and leaders. Prospective students must have current certification with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or similar national certification, possess a high school diploma or recognized equivalency, and have completed a total of 70 semester credits of specific coursework at the postsecondary level at an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation.

"At Pima Medical Institute, we are excited to provide a comprehensive radiologic sciences bachelor's degree completion program that will help propel students to the next level in their careers in less than four years," said Mark Luebke, president of Pima Medical Institute. "We anticipate this program will be a benchmark not only for Pima Medical Institute, but also for ABHES as we look forward to offering a variety of bachelor's degree options for the health care community in the future."

Pima Medical Institute developed the BSRS program, including its mission, philosophy, objectives and goals, with input from the eight radiography program directors from across its network of campuses. In addition, Pima utilized market research obtained from employers of radiologic technologists on key skills they look for when hiring employees. Following the gathering of that research, the college mapped out objectives for the courses in the program and developed syllabi before carving out the online coursework.

Prior to being able to offer the program, Pima was required to work through the accrediting process, and received approval from both the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education and ABHES.

"We are pleased that the BSRS at Pima Medical Institute is the first bachelor's degree program for ABHES," said Carol Moneymaker, executive director of ABHES. "In its application for approval, the school has described a baccalaureate program that will meet the rigorous quality standards of ABHES accreditation."

The online offering of the BSRS program provides students with flexibility, allowing them to better balance their education with their personal and professional commitments. The program content includes a variety of medical training subjects such as courses in advanced level radiography and health administration.
