CLINICAL MODULES/COMPETENCY IN OHIO



Ohio Department of Health approved Clinical Competency Modules
for Podiatric, Spine/Chiropractic, Chest & Abdomen, Extremities, and the Skull, Facial Bones & Sinuses
are now provided ON SITE FOR SMALL GROUPS in YOUR PRACTICE in YOUR HOME TOWN
by experienced medical radiography educators!

Please consider these features for BOTH non-licensed employees who will be applying for a license and licensed employees who want to upgrade to digital imaging in the future:

Demonstrations and simulations with your equipment with personal attention to your employees
Flexible schedule on weekdays or weekends to meet your practice needs
Class size is small with a maximum of 6 participants for better 1 on 1 supervision each day. An additional day(s) may be needed to accommodate larger group membership and/or completion of multiple modules
No additional fees are needed for site demonstrations!
If more than one day is required, the practice will need to pay and make arrangements for a non-smoking hotel room in a safe & convenient neighborhood close to the practice.
The length of each module for the day varies depending on the number of participants and their status as licensed vs non-licensed. Licensed gxmos finish quickly due to their familiarity with positioning concepts.
Licensed gxmos get continuing education hours for their biennium and have upgraded their license to perform digital imaging examinations.
Non-licensed employees are required to complete the clinical module and successfully pass the state examination to acquire a gxmo license in the future.
Please call the STARS office at 419 471-1973 for further details and a reservation.
No travel and/or accommodations needed for your employees;
Approved continuing education credit for licensed employees who can apply it to their biennium requirement while upgrading their license for digital imaging i.e. Podiatric, Spine/Chiropractic and Chest & Abdomen = 8 CE credits, Extremities = 12 CE credits, and the Skull, Facial Bones & Sinuses for 8 ce credits. Instead of listening to a repetitive lecture, they get hands on clinical training credits for the 12 hours required in the biennium while upgrading to digital imaging! &
Image evaluation on site.

I have professional associate medical radiography educators who will be assisting me in both the academic and clinical course offerings to provide flexible schedule opportunities.

*A self/distance learning course for non-licensed applicants is listed on the GXMO Training tab on the home page of this web site. They no longer have to attend in person presentations.

*A wide variety of self/distance learning products for continuing education for licensed personnel are listed on the GXMO/LSO CE Order Form tab on the home page of this web site. Licensed GXMOs do NOT have to attend in person presentations any longer unless they so choose. Now licensed GXMOs can mix and match a huge variety of topics and CE credits to meet or exceed the 12 CE credits needed for their license renewal.

Please feel free to call me at 419 471-1973 or email me at info@xrayhomestudies.com if you would like further details about scheduling one or more of our S.T.A.R.S. programs in clinical training of gxmos!! The course syllabus is enclosed for your review.
