Alumni story

Switching gears

When Ryan Duggan entered the Radiological Technology program he figured he'd be doing X-ray as a career. But the more time he spent doing clinical work in the hospital, the more he realized there were problems in the health-care system he wanted to help change. So he switched gears slightly, and did a master's in Health Informatics at Dal. He's now a data analyst and project coordinator for the Nova Scotia Breast Screening Program.

"My master's degree, combined with my knowledge of mammography from my undergrad, gave me a leg up to get this job.”
