About SORK

Kenya Association of Radiographers (KAR) was formed in 1960 as a Voluntary Professional Welfare Society. After rigorous training by the colonialists, the radiographers then named it the Association of Radiographers, Kenya abbreviated as (AORK). This was to act as a medium to represent their interests to the Government. Around the 1970s, they changed the name to Kenya Association of Radiographers (KAR) but the Registrar of Societies did not formalize this and hence as per official Government records it was still known as AORK till the 9th of October 2004. This is when through a Special General Meeting attended by over 130 Radiographers at Reef Hotel Mombasa that the Association transformed itself into the Society Of Radiography In Kenya (SORK) through the adoption of an interim constitution with new modern structures. This was followed by amendments and ratification at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on March 26th, 2005 in Nairobi, where new officials were elected.

 

Incidentally, the training of Radiographers was started in the late 1950s at Port Florence now the Western Kenyan City of Kisumu and over the years matured into a Diploma course in Diagnostic Radiography at the Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) Nairobi.

 

The Society of Radiography in Kenya (SORK) is a professional body that caters for the professional interests of all the radiographers practicing in Kenya, founded in 1960. The Society boasts of having a following of about 700 registered and practicing radiographers in Kenya which can be estimated to be more than 90% of the diagnostic and therapeutic radiographers in Kenya. The Society is affiliated with related professional and community bodies and has successfully sought representation on national healthcare forums.

 

SORK is a non-profit making national organization that provides professional support for radiographers and it is directly responsible for the Professional, Educational, Research, and Public Service and Workplace interest of its members. It also determines the radiological health care agenda and gives opinion in wide range of professional issues. In addition, it also sets the practicing and training standards that become the policies co-opted and acclaimed by the government and health professionals in the country. The activities of SORK are geared towards carrying out quality control, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) and Continuous Education (CE) all over the country and it accredits the CPD points attained for onward transmission to the Ministry of Health (MOH).
