Cancer Awareness Day  - November 20, 2013

2013 Cancer Awareness Day


Our Radiation Therapy Cancer Awareness Day provides a student-interactive project as part of the Introductory Course. New students are introduced to the cancer disease process as a collaborative group effort involving investigation, presentation, and a Campus Service Learning Initiative. Made possible with support by the American Society of Therapeutics in Radiation Oncology (Physician’s Group), the Lyndon B. Johnson Library for illustrative models, and the American Cancer Society.

Jessie Culbertson Has Been Selected to Participate in

ASRT Student Leadership Development Program

JessieJessie Culbertson, a radiologic technology student at Texas State University, has been selected to participate in the American Society of Radiologic Technologists 2013 Student Leadership Development Program.

The ASRT represents 150,000 members who perform medical imaging procedures or plan and deliver radiation therapy treatments. The Society also provides radiologic technology students with the tools, services and support they need to prepare for careers in medical imaging and radiation therapy.

As part of the application process, students were required to write a 500-700 word essay on how they expect to grow professionally by participating in the program.

Jessie Culbertson will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to the ASRT Educational Symposium and Annual Governance and House of Delegates Meeting, June 13-16, in Albuquerque, N.M. In addition, Jessie Culbertson will attend two educational courses specifically designed for students and be assigned a professional mentor during the House of Delegates meeting.

Jessie Culbertson was one of 61 students chosen from more than 130 entries submitted by radiologic science students from around the country.

“The Student Leadership Development Program gives medical imaging and radiation therapy students the opportunity to experience firsthand how the ASRT governance process works,” said ASRT President Donna L. Thaler Long, M.S.M., R.T.(R)(M)(QM), FASRT. “While in Albuquerque, students will participate in educational activities, network with radiology leaders and learn from seasoned radiologic technologists. It’s a great way for students to get involved early and jumpstart their careers.”

Participated in the annual Cancer Awareness Month Community Outreach where RTT 2013 Seniors presented their cancer research projects. The public was invited to attend and learn more about current treatments,care and psychosocial needs of cancer patients

  


CONGRATULATIONS!


UTPATexas State Radiation Therapy Program for its highly successful cancer outreach which targeted Hispanic undergraduates for marrow donor registration in the first-ever partnership between two Texas universities - Texas State and the University of Texas-Pan American. They traveled to UTPA- Edinburg, Texas on February 26-29, 2012 to show UTPA students how to launch a CAMCO student organization and how to conduct a marrow donor registration drive. And in a partnership with the UTPA students, they did an amazing job by registering 1,6l3 student marrow donors, most of whom were Hispanic!
This first-ever cancer event collaboration between two Texas universities lays the groundwork for other such partnerships across the state. Congratulations to the Texas State and UTPA students for their outstanding work in saving lives and blazing an innovative and rewarding collaborative trail.

Clinical Gross Anatomy/Cross-Sectional Anatomy

Structural and functional study of human anatomy categorized by region and function. Major organs, lymphatics, vessels, and imaging are emphasized as related to the clinical significance in the field of radiation therapy. Teaching methods include lecture, class discussion, demonstration, and dissection/ examination of human cadavers. The course supplements the Gross Anatomy course for radiation therapy. Emphasis is placed on sectional anatomy with a concentration on anatomy in three dimensions.





Clinical Education

Students are provided clinical education through cooperative relationships with 16 cancer centers in the Central Texas region to provide a strong and diverse clinical foundation for the program. A major strength noted by the accreditation process has been the strong support of a large group of Clinical Supervisors.






Dedicated Dosimetry & Treatment Planning Computer Lab

The dedicated computerized treatment planning lab provides our students hands-on application on development of complex external beam radiation treatments. Students are provided two Dosimetry and Treatment Planning courses.








Research Methods and Manuscript Development

Students are provided instructions in research strategies, critical review and analysis of peer-reviewed publications, manuscript style and publication guidelines according to the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) professional journal. Emphasis is placed on critical thinking and building a foundation of research skills. The student projects culminate in a research forum.

All students in the course were required to participate in a national student writing contest. The objective was to provide a structured mechanism that fosters direct student engagement with our professional organization. The activity provided the realization of awards and national recognition to several students. National writing awards at all levels of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place have been presented to students.
