Medical Imaging Scholarship Begins

St. Vincent's created a new scholarship fund last week for students who will pursue medical imaging, which is facing a shortage.

The demand for medical imaging professionals is already high, according to the American Hospital Association. The AHA reports that one out of every seven X-ray technician jobs goes unfilled.

Medical imaging staff handles X-rays, ultrasounds, CT scans and other tools used in the diagnosis and treatment of patients.

"The shortage of medical imaging professionals through the United States is extreme," said Karen Nevins, director of St. Vincent's Schools of Medical Science.

"We're starting a new approach to addressing this shortage."

The St. Vincent's Foundation created the Mary B. Winston Scholarship Fund. The fund, an endowed scholarship, will allow recipients who would otherwise be unable to afford it to attend the St. Vincent's Schools of Medical Science.

Jim and Mary Winston provided the funding for the scholarship, which grants $2,500 per student per year.

The scholarship will be given to one medical science school student in each of the first three years and to five students annually in the years to follow.

John Evans was given the first Winston Scholarship.

Office surgeries

Three people died recently in South Florida while getting cosmetic surgery in a physician's office despite tougher safety standards.

The deaths occurred within one month and raised concerns among regulators. The Florida Department of Health is investigating the cases to determine if the causes are case specific or are indicative a larger problem with regulation.

Florida implemented stronger rules regarding office surgery in February 2000 after a Sun-Sentinel report found 48 deaths across Florida since the mid-1980s.
