Regional West Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology is proud of its clinical focused, hands-on curriculum. Clinical training is essential to the learning student. After an introductory period, students are required to schedule three days of clinical education each week. The continuous exposure to procedures, use of organizational skills, and the ability to accept responsibility increases a student’s confidence. The student performs much in the same capacity as a technologist but always has assistance immediately available. Exposure to this type of training creates smaller adjustments when transition to the postgraduate work place occurs.
A background check and drug screening is required prior to the start of classes. One external clinical education setting also requires additional screening, with a fee. Further travel is required for three of the educational settings. This is outlined in the chart below.

Regional West Medical Center School of Radiologic Technology requires that all students spend a minimum number of days at each clinical education setting. Students are given the opportunity to work with different equipment, and adapt to different work environments during their off-campus clinical rotations. Weekend rotations are also required. The program views the scheduling of the student on weekend shifts as essential in the development of a successful technologist. All weekend rotations are completed at Regional West Medical Center.
