End of an Era at School of Radiologic Technology

Posted on July 2015

Radiology technicians are the unsung heroes of the field, ensuring that every scan and procedure is performed efficiently and correctly. The University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics (UWHC) School of Radiologic Technology is the longest continuously-operating school of radiologic technology in the United States, and is known throughout the nation for its top-notch education.

Therefore, it is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Clinical Education Coordinator Chris Lakner, B.A., R.T.(R). During his tenure at UWHC, Chris has served as a staff technologist, lead worker, and clinical instructor, and most recently as the clinical education coordinator. His passion for the radiography profession, his support for UWHC School of Radiologic Technology, and the quality of education he has provided to students are beyond compare. Please join us in wishing him a rewarding and enjoyable retirement as he pursues this new chapter in his life.

We are pleased to announce that Mary Legler, M.Ed., R.T.(R) will assume the duties of Clinical Education Coordinator. Mary has served the UWHC School of Radiologic Technology as a clinical instructor since 2006. She is an experienced and innovative educator who brings a fresh approach to radiologic sciences education. We look forward to the future and the opportunities it will bring.
