Scheduling and Clinical Obligations Policy
All class hours are scheduled during normal working hours on Monday through Friday. The students’ first ten weeks of training will consist of full‑time classes between the hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
After the initial classroom work, students will be assigned to particular areas in the Radiology Department to begin clinical development. Students are directly supervised and instructed by our clinical coordinator and clinical instructors, who are all registered technologists. Class is scheduled two days per week, during the time students are here for clinical rotations. Class attendance is mandatory.
Students routinely spend 40 hours a week in the classroom and/or clinical areas. Although most rotations involve Monday through Friday during the day, students are also exposed to the evening and weekend rotations with other students in the class.
All clinical education is conducted at facilities operated by Reid Health. Students will primarily rotate through the inpatient and outpatient departments at the main Reid campus. In addition, some rotations will take place at the Reid Orthopedic Center on Highland Road, and the Reid Urgent Care Center on Chester Boulevard.
Clinical hours, rotations in the clinical area, class hours, and days off are scheduled at the discretion of the administration of the School. Any changes in either class or clinical schedules must be given administrative approval.
