Students will be assigned to radiographic rooms in the Imaging Services Department on a rotational basis.  The student to staff ratio will be 1:1. Room assignments will be noted on the schedules and also on the staff assignment list located in the work area by the charge tech area.

 

Students will be assigned to transport patients during initial rotations as means of evaluating student/ patient rapport and to observe patient clinical status and transportation safety.

 

Student performance during scheduled rotations will be evaluated by the supervisors, staff technologists, staff radiologists, and clinical instructors in a written evaluation form.

 

During the second year of training, the student will be assigned to clinical rotation in Operating room, CT Scanner, Ultrasound, MRI, Cardiac Cath Lab (optional), Interventional Radiography (optional), Radiation Therapy (optional), Nuclear Medicine (optional), Spine Center, Mammography (optional),and GI Lab (optional).  Operating room and CT rotations will be ongoing through the entire senior year.
