OSRT Student Leadership Program

The Ohio Society of Radiologic Technologists’ (O.S.R.T.) commitment to student professional growth and development is demonstrated through the O.S.R.T Student Director Program. The selected student director serves as an official voting member of the Board of Directors. The board strongly believes that students are the leaders of the future and the O.S.R.T. has a responsibility to help cultivate them as leaders.

The Student Director Application process is detaield below and the application must be submitted online no later than January 1 to be considered for selection. One student will be selected for the position to serve as a member of the board for one full year – from April to April. This period of service helps to facilitate strong relationships, a fundamental understanding of organizational operations, enhanced leadership skills, and a commitment to continued service to the profession. The selected student must also attend the O.S.R.T. Leadership Academy scheduled to be held on (date to be determined--check back soon).

The student director will be assigned a mentor who is either an officer or committee chairperson. The mentor relationship offers opportunities for the student director to gain organizational and professional insights and provides a mechanism for valuable input on health policy issues, educational issues, and organizational operations that affect all medical imaging and radiologic science students and professionals in Ohio. Following the application deadline date, the board's executive committee reviews and ranks all applicants using a scoring rubric. The executive committee appoints the highest scoring applicant to serve as the student director, a voting member of the Board of Directors.
