It's Back to School Time...for ME!

Yup. One more go at it. I've been accepted into a Radiology Assistant program in Utah and will be spending the next two years living like a student again.  No sleep, late nights, crappy diet. Classes are all online but I will have to visit the campus in Ogden twice per semester for the next five semesters. Aside from that, I will be spending 24 hours each week with a Radiologist learning his trade (as well as holding my full time job, of course).

But in the end, I'll be ten times better at my job and have a whole list of new skills. My new title will be Radiology Practitioner Assistant or Radiology Assistant.  They get used fairly interchangeably.

If you want to see why I'm up to, visit my student blog:

I gotta get going, I have to figure out how I'm going to pay for this education now.



  1. good luck Pop. Great to see folks take classes to learn more and get paid more.

  2. I suppose you will be moving? Or just getting a temporary place to live an the family can stay at home and the kids can stay at their school? It will be hard for you but worth it and I am sure your family is behind you a hundred percent.

  3. Radiography to radiology is a great step up. I'll be headed to school next month for radiography and have already started to live like a more eating out etc...


Don't you spam me...I'll just delete it!
