Moody Endowment Donation Enhances Radiography Program
Moody Endowment recently awarded $85,000 to the Radiography Program at Galveston College.
The recent Moody Endowment donation provided almost two-thirds of what was needed to update and replace critical, training program equipment for the Radiography program at Galveston College. The College provided the other third of the cost from other sources.
This funding directly impacts the quality of the education students receive through the Radiography program. The donation will provide for new Radiography equipment, which will offer students a closer approximation to real-world resources, and an opportunity to practice their clinical skills concurrently. The new simulation equipment is comparable to genuine hospital equipment and assists a student’s transition from simulated practice to actual clinical situations. Students learn and practice radiography procedures and competencies in these labs, before utilizing their newly acquired training in true life clinical and patient applications.
The GC Radiography program is a competency based program, dispensed over five semesters ending with the award of Associates in Applied Science degree. The Radiography program is fully accredited and offers clinical training at UTMB, Texas Children’s Hospital, multiple other imaging centers, and community hospitals.
