SAN MATEO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 9, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — A Gurnick Academy of Medical Artsߴ A.S. in Radiologic Technology student was recently awarded the Royce Osborn Minority Scholarship from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.* Cynthya Cambero, a first-year student, received $4,000 and a certificate honoring her at the Concord Campus on Friday, May 26, 2023.
“Cynthya has excelled didactically and clinically,” says Elizabeth Rosebrock, A.S. in Radiologic Technology Program director. “She came into the program as a healthcare professional wanting to take the next step of starting her medical imaging career journey! She’s been employed as a healthcare professional at local institutions. These allowed her to shine when displaying professionalism and excellent patient care in the didactic clinical setting,” says Rosebrock.
While Marcus Tromp, Concord Campus director, adds, “We are very excited to congratulate Cynthya for the Royce Osborn Minority Student Scholarship. Cynthya has almost completed her first year at Gurnick Academy in the A.S. in Radiologic Technology program,” says Tromp. “She has been a stellar student, maintaining a 3.9 GPA thus far. By and large, she has represented the local Concord, CA, community by continuing her career in healthcare.”
“The first step was applying,” says Cambero of the award process. “In addition to basic information, there were questions about prior education and/or experience in the medical field, volunteer experience, and any interests or hobbies. This was followed by a series of essay questions including personal/professional strengths and weaknesses, leadership abilities, and my financial situation,” she says.
When asked about the next steps, Cambero says, “Upon passing board exams and obtaining a radiography license, I will prepare for the licensing exams in computed tomography and mammography.
“I am so grateful for the opportunity to go to Gurnick, says the award recipient. “Thanks to Gurnick instructors, I am more prepared and confident as I begin the final half of my program.”~
