The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) has selected 61 radiologic science students to participate in the ASRT 2012 Student Leadership Development Program.
Now in its second year, the program allows students to experience the governance functions of ASRT, attend educational courses and learn about leadership positions in the association.
Students will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 28-July 1, in Las Vegas. In addition, they will attend an educational track at the symposium specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.
Selection criteria included submitting a 500-700 word essay. The ASRT received more than 170 essays. A team of ASRT staff radiologic technologists evaluated the essays on several factors including the author’s commitment to leadership activities at the local, state and national levels.
