Two students from Shore Memorial Hospital’s School of Radiologic Technology have been honored with scholarships from the Atlantic Medical Imaging Foundation’s Jan Astin Scholarship Fund.
Lauren Harrigan, a second-year student from Atlantic City, and Ken Lai, a first-year student from Galloway, both received scholarships for $9,000.
The Shore Memorial Hospital School of Radiologic Technology is the only hospital-based, radiology school in the area. After completion of the full-time, 24-month program, students receive a Certificate in Radiologic Technology and qualify to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) national certification exam.
Additionally, through the school’s articulation agreement with Widener University in Chester, Pa., graduates can apply their radiography credits toward an associate’s or bachelor’s degree.
