Untold Stories of an MRI Extern
By Amanda Ramirez, ARMRIT

CLC student 1710A, MRI Graduate Class of 2019

We enter the classroom, bright eyed and full of eagerness to learn of the explorations of our future chosen careers. While we sit comfortably, (for the most part), in our well-lit educational environment, notebooks blank and our pens waiting to start filling the pages with unknown and new information. The instructor really doesn’t share with you the reality, the fears, and the hard work that goes into
Resilience! What Is It? And How Can You Get Some
by Stephanie Shelburne, Ph.D.

The word RESILIENCE has become quite the buzzword in current media and marketing. Terms and concepts related to the idea of being resilient seem to pack quite a bit of value-added to products and services that claim to make you more resilient.

Clearly, as a public, we love the word and we love the idea of being resilient but what does it really mean?

Resilience is much more than just a buzzword. It’s also more than being prepared for adversity, an
LEARN TO FALL SO YOU CAN FLY
Written by Kari Allen-Hammer, Ph.D.

Stop resisting the inevitable and prepare yourself properly.

Our lives have abruptly and drastically shifted. For some, this means the ground is shuffling beneath you now and you have to alter your positioning to avoid falling.

For others, you may get a much-needed respite from the demands of an over-scheduled, stretched-too-thin lifestyle, but the stuckness of inactivity is beginning to set in.

We’re in the midst of a significant
Conversations
Can You Think of The Last Time You Were in A Conversation Where You Felt Like You Just Weren't Being Heard or Understood?
Have you ever finished a conversation and realized that you still had a ton of questions or comments and are actually not really sure what the end result of the conversation was? Or for that matter, do certain conversations leave you completely drained and feeling sort of spacey?

These are all signs that what’s happening isn’t really communication in the
When Passion & Skills Don’t Match
For many students, finding a career path is as easy as asking a simple question.

“What’s your passion?”

These students, having a passion that matches their skill set with reality aligning ever so perfectly, answer effortlessly. “Well, I’ve always been passionate about helping children, I love science and everyone in my family is a doctor, so I definitely want to pursue that field. I want to be a pediatrician. In fact, I have since I w

Certification

Why Is Certification Important?

Certification is becoming an important factor in the healthcare industry.  More and more employers are looking at certification as a way to assess whether an individual possesses the skills and knowledge required for successful performance in a particular job role. Why are employers looking for this assurance? It’s because they want to hire the best qualified individual who will make a positive contribution to quality patient care.

By becoming certified in your field of expertise, and by maintaining your competency year after year, you are saying to your employer that you:

  • Have met standards that have been established and verified by a third party organization.
  • Are dedicated to maintaining quality in your work on a regular basis.

These are powerful statements that speak volumes about you as a professional.  Certification indeed demonstrates to your employer, and to the public, that you are committed to your profession and that you want to continue to learn and grow.

NOTE:

  • In addition to employers, certain state and federal laws also require certification in order to fully practice in the field.
  • Studies have shown that individuals who are certified in their field have higher salaries and better promotion opportunities.

The following organizations provide professional certification information for programs offered by Casa Loma College:
