MIDLAND, Texas (KMID/KPEJ) – Midland Health and Midland College announced Friday the reopening of the Midland College Radiologic Program.

The program has been revived after 13 years to meet the demands of the medical community in response to an urgent need for skilled radiologic technicians in the field, according to a release from Midland Health. Midland Health currently has 20 full-time and part-time positions open, reflecting this demand for technologists.

“We are extremely excited to introduce the Midland College Radiologic Technology Program again,” said Kelly Wright, director of radiology at Midland Health. “The revival of the program underlines our commitment to bridge the gap between educational institutions and the ever-growing needs of the medical sector. This initiative is in line with our mission to pioneer health care for the Greater Midland.

Starting Monday, August 21, a class of eleven students will begin their educational journey through the program. Midland Health says the curriculum will empower students with the skills and knowledge needed to excel in radiological technology. Students will attend classroom and laboratory sessions in the Department of Radiology at the F. Mary Hall Outpatient Center, formerly West Campus, and will also complete their clinical requirements at Midland Memorial Hospital, Diagnostic Imaging Associates, and West Texas Orthopedics.

Midland Health says this reopening is a testament to the collaborative efforts between Midland Health and Midland College. As the program begins, both organizations look forward to creating a pool of skilled professionals who will play a vital role in advancing medical imaging and patient care in the Midland community and beyond.
