The purpose of clinical education is to provide the student with clinical experience necessary to integrate the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective (ethics and attitude) aspects of the Radiography Program. This experience is gained through a planned and structured clinical education. Students are rotated through various areas of the Radiology Department on a one-month assignment schedule. Clinical education sites offer a sufficient quantity of a variety of radiologic procedures to provide more than adequate clinical education requirements of the State of New Jersey, Radiologic Technology Board of Examiners (NJBOE), Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Students are taught to assist radiologists, manipulate imaging equipment, position patients, and make the required radiographic exposure and procedure radiographs. As part of the medical team, students work with other professionals, such as physicians, nurses, physicists and other allied health professionals.
The program/faculty will notify the students in a timely manner if there is any change to these schedules.
Students are required to wear radiation badges and ID’s when at clinical sites.
Students are required to wear all ID badges when in classroom.
