            2005-2008, Associates in Diagnostic Radiography., Diagnostic Radiography

            Akron and Akron Children's hospital combined to form one of the finest schools of Radiography in the region. A top tiered educational experience blends class room didactic instruction with hands on clinical rotation through the areas main hospital and out patient campuses. I can not recommend this program highly enough.
