Radiography

Available on the Vincennes campus

Good Samaritan Hospital and Vincennes University 
This Associate of Science degree Program is a partnership between the Good Samaritan Hospital (GSH) Radiology Program and Vincennes University (VU). Good Samaritan Hospital’s Radiology Program, a certificate program, provides courses to prepare students for the Radiology Technologist Certification.

Vincennes University provides support courses and students register for all GSH radiography (RADG) courses through VU to receive dual credit. Upon completion of all VU Radiography Program degree requirements, students will earn an Associate of Science (A.S.) degree in Radiography.

Graduates of radiology/radiography programs in 2015 or later must earn an A.S. degree to be eligible for certification.  

GSH Radiology Program Description
Good Samaritan Hospital offers individuals who are interested in a career in Radiography the opportunity to receive training through their Radiography Program, which is a 24-month hospital based program founded in 1956. The program is accredited by the

Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) , 20 North Wacker Drive, Suite 2850, Chicago, Illinois 60606-3182, (312) 704-5300, email: mail@jrcert.org.

The program prepares the individual to assume responsibilities and duties of a radiographer with ability and confidence. The program integrates academic, technical and human relation aspects of an individual’s education to enable them to do significant work in the profession.  All radiography didactic courses are taught at Good Samaritan Hospital with the students routinely rotating through five clinical sites during the 2-year program. This enables the student to broaden their experience and skills to other facilities.

Good Samaritan Hospital Radiography Program has an articulation agreement with Vincennes University for students to complete an Associate Degree (Radiography).

Application Process
The application involves submission of an application form, essay, college transcripts, high school diploma or GED (if applicable), and three Reference Letters. Applicants must also complete Clinical Observation experiences, an Entrance Examination and an interview. The Program only admits ten students each year, so the admission process is very competitive. Students wishing to earn an A.S. degree from VU must follow the Vincennes University admission process. VU applicants must submit official transcripts to the VU Admissions Office. VU students will be assigned to a VU academic advisor to assist the student in class registration to meet the A.S. degree requirements.   Applicants are encouraged to submit items early for review to both, VU and GSH Radiography Program. If there are any courses that are needed to meet the requirements, we may be able to provide guidance in completing the application process for the year. We encourage individuals to submit the individual application items as they are completed or become available.

A new application to the Good Samaritan Hospital Radiography Program must be submitted each year, regardless if the individual applied the prior year. Upon request, GSH will send a new application packet for the next year after the January deadline.  Applications are accepted throughout the year at the Program office. The application deadline is Friday of the first full week of January. The program start date for a new class is the Monday before Memorial Day.
