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 assure 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.
