Berlin, Md. - Through a partnership with GE, Atlantic General Hospital now offers
its radiology technologists free continuing education to assist them in
maintaining their professional certification.
The staff can take the classes through the Healthcare Learning System’s
Tip-TV OnDemand broadcasts available on certain televisions within the
hospital or by viewing the coursework online. The exams are taken online
and test scores are sent directly to the American Society of Radiologic
Technologists (ASRT), which then awards continuing education credits.
Through the online system created by GE, employees can build their course
load for the entire year based on the continuing education requirements
of their field and track their progress accordingly.
Typically, medical professionals are responsible for any cost involved
in the continuing education necessary to maintain their certification.
The system will allow the radiology technicians at Atlantic General to
earn most if not all of their continuing education credits each year at no cost.
“This is a wonderful valued added program that we are able to realize
as a part of our partnership with General Electric Company,” says
Bob Abbott, Director of Imaging at Atlantic General Hospital.
Selected classes are also available for physicians and other medical professionals
at Atlantic General Hospital through this system.
