Radiation Therapy Clinical Obligations

Radiation Therapy students participate in clinic three days a week during fall and spring semesters. Clinic days are Monday through Wednesday. Times are 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the fall and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the spring. Summer semester clinic schedule is four days a week, Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Students are assigned to specific geographical areas and are not required to travel outside their assigned areas.

Students may not complete clinical practice rotations as paid employees.

The program has established a safety screening protocol for students having potential access to the magnetic resonance environment. All students are required to watch a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) safety video and complete an MRI Safety Screening Form as part of their clinical orientation requirements to ensure they are appropriately screened for magnetic waves and radio frequency hazards. If a student has had an injury to the eye involving a metallic object or fragment, they will be responsible for the cost of MRI orbits images prior to the rotation.

Attention

Clinical facilities may require criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, professional license checks, and/or proof of US citizenship prior to or during participation in the clinical portion of a program. Any expenses associated with these requirements are the responsibility of the student. Pending the outcome, clinical facilities may deny a student the opportunity to complete the clinical portion of a program. A student who is unable to complete the clinical portion of a program will not be able to graduate.

Criminal background checks, drug screenings, credit checks, professional license checks, and/or proof of US citizenship may also be required after graduation by examination boards, state licensing boards, and employment agencies. Pending the outcome, a graduate may be disqualified from examination eligibility, state licensure, and/or employment.

Students admitted to health sciences programs are required to have a physical examination to determine if they are physically and emotionally capable of performing the essential functions of the program and must submit a completed medical form. A record of immunizations, including, but not limited to, an annual Influenza vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine, must be included with the medical form. A medical or religious exemption for vaccines must be approved by the clinical site(s). PCC does not grant vaccine exemptions in lieu of the clinical site(s) and does not guarantee vaccine exemptions will be approved by the clinical site(s).
