The ASRT Foundation and Siemens Healthcare USA have announced the recipients of the 2014 Siemens Clinical Advancement Scholarship. Four scholarships of $5,000 each were awarded to medical imaging professionals looking to enhance their clinical practice skills.
“At Siemens, we realize the vital role that education plays in the overall success of health care organizations and in delivering optimal patient care,” said Nanci Wozniak, vice president of education services. “Our ongoing contribution to this scholarship fund enables us to provide opportunities to medical imaging and therapy professionals to gain more, grow more, and achieve more in their clinical practice.” The company has donated $170,000 in scholarship since 2005.
Applicants had to be enrolled in an accredited bachelor’s or master’s degree program in radiologic sciences or a certificate program in a specialty discipline such as computed tomography, magnetic resonance, or sonography. They also needed to be medical imaging professionals with a record of providing excellent patient care. Students were selected on the basis of commitment, leadership, achievement, and financial need by the Foundation’s Scholarship Review Committee and approved by the Board of Trustees.
