Christ Hospital School of Radiography
The purpose of the clinical education is to provide the student with clinical experience necessary to integrate the cognitive, psychomotor, and affective (ethics & 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 and the State of New York. 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.
