About the program manager

Merryl N. Fulmer, B.S. R.T. (R)(M)(MR)(QM)(CT)

Merryl has been professionally working in radiography ever since her graduation from high school. For more than 41 years, she has been actively involved in all aspects of radiology academia, including serving as Program Director at four Schools of Radiologic Technology, Clinical Instructor and Adjunct Faculty at many Colleges, Universities and hospitals and past President of the Philadelphia Society of Radiologic Technologists, (one of the few remaining city affiliates for the ASRT). One her biggest passions and accomplishments is the development of an “Initial Training Program in Mammography” in accordance with the MQSA and approved by the ASRT for 40 CE credits. This program is in its 16th year, has graduated innumerable women into the Mammography field, and is supported by more than 25 hospitals for tuition reimbursement. For five years, Merryl worked in clinical research as the Clinical Trials Trainer for the American College of Radiology (ACR). While employed by the ACR, her work there included several major research breakthroughs including the DMIST, Digital Mammography Trial and other clinical trials that have altered medical practice. At the present time, Merryl offers four Initial Training post-primary courses. They include Mammography (M), Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MR) and her most recent addition, Vascular Imaging (VI). These 40 hr courses are approved by the ASRT for 40 Cat A CE credits.
