Radiologic Sciences & Therapy Observation Hours 2022-2023
Due to COVID-19 restrictions in healthcare facilities, observation hours will not be required this application cycle (Autumn 2023 admissions) by the Division of Radiologic Sciences and Therapy but are STRONGLY recommended if a clinical site will allow students to observe. Observation hours provide additional experience and insight to the different imaging programs while also allowing the student to gain important information that can be demonstrated during the interview process.
In lieu of observation hours, the Radiologic Sciences and Therapy Division is requiring ALL applicants to complete the American Society of Radiologic Technology R.T.101 – “Introduction to Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapy Modalities”. At the completion of the module, save the certificate of completion with your name and the date you viewed the module. The certificate of completion should be uploaded into your professional application.
If observation hours can be obtained, eight (8) hours of documented observation experience should be completed in each modality you wish to apply. Please inform the scheduling administrator that you require observation in either Radiation Therapy, Sonography, or Diagnostic Radiology. Observation documentation forms and instructions are online in the “Academics” tab under “Undergraduate Programs” and then under the “Admissions Requirements” tab of the “Radiologic Sciences and Therapy” page. Documentation for observation hours.
Please note: Radiography is specific to Fluoroscopy and X-ray observations ONLY (including Emergency Department and Operating Room). Observation hours in CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, Interventional Radiology, Veterinary Medicine, or Dentistry will not be credited toward the recommended 8 hours of any modality.
