Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Director Lynn Mitts completed an externship in Radiologic Technology this summer, made possible through an OC Regional Strong Workforce project. Mitts went to Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Downey for her externship, which began in July.
“It has been some years since I have been in the hospital setting as a radiographer so it was wonderful and exciting to be with the healthcare team,” Mitts said. “I have already updated my classroom lectures with the new items of information.”
Mitts spent time in the radiology department, learning about the latest digital equipment and software programs. She also observed various radiographic exams and how they differ from Mitts’ time as a radiographer.
