Registered CT technologist Pam Buttke, RT(R)(CT), became a healthcare traveler in 2017 after working full-time in her field for close to 17 years.
In 2001, she attended the x-ray technologist program at Midlands Technical College in South Carolina. Pam earned her associate degree in health science with a specialization in radiology. During the program, Pam first heard about allied health travel. She was intrigued by the idea, but her children were young, so she made it a long-term goal.
She later cross-trained in CAT scan and took a national registry exam, earning the title of computed tomography (CT) technologist. Her full-time experience was spent working in hospitals, including a Level 1 trauma hospital and Providence Heart Hospital, both in Columbia, South Carolina.
