Rad Tech Clinical Education Rotations
Students will rotate through all of the program’s affiliates during the clinical education component of the program. Each rotation will be two weeks in duration. Students may be scheduled for consecutive rotations at Presence USMC because its size and volume of work allow for being assigned to a different room and/or different branch of the imaging department.
The clinical affiliates provide meaningful educational experiences to the student by the use of their facilities in “real world” environments. These opportunities allow the student to put theoretical and laboratory knowledge into practice on live patients in need of healthcare services.
Students will be assigned to perform the tasks that the department’s technologists perform as part of their regular duties. Students will not be assigned on a routine or consistent manner to tasks that are not educationally meaningful.
