The TSRT Student Bee is an academic competition between students from diagnostic medical imaging schools.
Magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, radiography, or sonography/ultrasound students currently enrolled in an accredited radiologic science or medical imaging program are encouraged to enter this competition.
Students registered in a primary medical imaging modality (magnetic resonance, nuclear medicine, radiation therapy, radiography, or sonography/ultrasound, etc.) regardless of enrollment status, will be qualified as a registered technologist; therefore, the individual is ineligible to compete with non-registered student technologists. This standard will be applied according to the status during the time of competition.
The following individuals/groups are prohibited from entering this competition: Companies, School Employees, Faculty Members, Educators, TSRT Board Members, Judges, and companies or individuals with TSRT Contracts.
