Courtnee Marthe: Future Radiology Technician
Courtnee Marthe, a student at South Summit High School, participated in a job shadow at Park City Medical Center during her senior year. Courtnee’s job shadow was in the radiology department. “I interacted and communicated with patients who were receiving scans or test. I watched x-rays, MRIs, CTs, ultrasounds, and mammograms performed. I was able to ask questions and have them answered. The people I shadowed were very kind and informative,” said Courtnee. During the job shadow Courtnee learned, “The elements of radiology tests or scans and how different body parts look during different scans.”
Courtnee offers this advice to students who are thinking about participating in a job shadow, “Do it! It will let you know if this is a career you really want to pursue.”
Courtnee will be attending Utah Valley University in the fall to purse a bachelor’s degree in Spanish. She then plans to continue her education at Weber State University to pursue a degree in Radiation Therapy.
Each year hundreds of Career and Technical Education students participate in a job shadow. If you’re interested in participating in a job shadow contact the Work-Based Learning Coordinator at your school.
