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 of 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 an 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 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.
