The Radiologic Technology department at Mississippi Delta Community College recently inducted six students into the Mississippi Alpha Chapter of The Lambda Nu honor society. The national honor society recognizes outstanding students in radiologic and imaging sciences.

The MDCC chapter of Lambda Nu was established in 2013. Membership to the honor society is based on an overall grade point average of 3.0 or better and enrollment as a full-time radiology student for at least two semesters.

Students must also demonstrate evidence of professional commitment beyond the minimum program requirements. Candidates must be actively pursing an independent research project while also participating in related campus and professional activities.

The Radiologic Technology Program provides a general education and clinical training program that prepares students for a career in radiography. The program commences in August of each year and runs for 22 consecutive months with a projected graduation date in May.

Students receive traditional classroom instruction and laboratory experience on campus during the program. Clinical experience with actual patient contact is provided by rotation through the affiliated hospitals during this period.
