Hear from our graduates
“The program offered me a way to become a part of a team. It offered education and clinical experience while affording the monetary means of a paid internship. This was the perfect opportunity for me to continue my education in a field where my compassion can be shared with our patients. Throughout my internship, I had the pleasure of working with so many amazing techs, supervisors and managers. At every step of the process I felt I had the entire departments support. I had a team of cheerleaders and support for all my questions. I’m forever grateful for their patience, guidance and the amazing opportunity,” says Lia Vrablik, Mammography Technologist, LVH–17th Street.
“I was registered in mammography in the 80s. I left the hospital in 1998 to work occupational medicine for 24 years. When an opportunity to work in the hospital again, I went through this internship program with Breast Health Services to refresh my skills. However, mammography has changed immensely since I started. The internship was such a valuable tool for my professional growth. I am so happy to be part of this program. I am even more proud to be part of Breast Health Services. I feel like I am truly making na difference in breast health and what I do really matters,” says Jeannine Miller, Mammography Technologist, Health Center at Bath.
“I have wanted to join Breast Health Services since I was in X-ray school. I never had a clear path to join before LVHN started the internship program. I am very thankful to the program for allowing me to finally be where I feel I was meant to be. I love my job and I love helping all these ladies and sometimes men,” says Nikole Lynn Misuraca, Mammography Technologist, LVH–Muhlenberg.
“Working in X-ray, I always knew that I wanted to further my skills in diagnostic imaging, but after shadowing other modalities that didn’t suit me, I became discouraged. An old mentor of mine who worked as a mammographer always mentioned that she believed that I would excel in the field, but I wasn’t sure of my options. A family friend went for her annual mammogram and asked the tech how she got into the field, knowing I may be interested. The tech was a former intern that went through this program and spoke highly of it. I looked into the program and applied shortly after. Breast Health Services was so welcoming from the start, and I knew that this was the right fit. The program is very thorough and educational, and everyone I have met in my time here is so kind and knowledgeable. The opportunity to play a critical role in the early detection of breast cancer is my privilege, and I would recommend this program to anyone interested in mammography,” says Kelly McCauley, Mammography Intern, LVH–Cedar Crest.
