Radiography Clinical Obligations
First year radiography students participate in clinical one to three days per week between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Second year radiography students participate in clinical three days per week between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Students will be required to complete a weekend and evening rotation during the third, fourth, or fifth semester.
Students may be assigned to clinical settings located upwards to 132 miles from campus.
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 MRI safety video and complete a MRI Safety Screening form as part of their clinical orientation requirements to assure they are appropriately screened for magnetic waves or radiofrequency 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.
