The Radiologic Technology Program at Shawnee State University encompasses six (6) semesters at the University. The clinical education component of the program encompasses five (5) semesters.
Students are expected to attend all clinical assignments and should arrive on time to the clinical site and be prepared to start their clinical training on time. Students are expected to attend during regularly scheduled classes or clinical time. Students will follow the University calendar regarding vacations. The University normally schedules a fall break in October, Thanksgiving Holiday, and a week in March for Spring Break. However, the breaks are subject to change. The student is not required to attend clinicals during University breaks. The University observes the following holidays during the semesters: Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, and Thanksgiving (subject to change).
Students will be expected to follow the guidelines of the clinical rotation policy. Students will not be asked to drive more than 70 miles from the University. Each student will rotate to a new clinical site each semester, but may return to that facility in a later semester. Students will be permitted to request a specific facility, but the request is not guaranteed. Rotation plans are based on experiences provided by the clinical affiliate and the proximity of the student. Rotations are complete for the two years of clinical experience in the first summer semester before clinical rotations begin. Changes to the rotation plan are up to the discretion of the clinical coordinator. Students are required to have an annual background check, drug screening, and demonstrate proof of health insurance to attend the clinical setting.
