Clinical Practicum

RADI 211
2.5 CR

The student will participate in clinical education four days a week in the imaging department of an affiliating hospital. With the intensive four-day schedule, it is expected that under direct supervision of a radiologic technologist and/or physician, the student will have an opportunity to learn and achieve competency on exams and procedures they have yet to experience in the program, while continuing to practice and "fine-tune" already established skills. Computed tomography (CT) observation opportunity may be provided. Emphasis will be placed on patient safety and comfort while professional values, attitudes, and behaviors are facilitated.

Prerequisites: admission to the Radiography Program; and a "C" in RADI 130, 131, and 132
