Hybrid education course- Internet and on campus requirements
On campus requirements TBA
This clinical course will focus on imaging procedures involving selected modalities. In addition to scheduled in-class activities, the student will observe and participate in radiographic procedures and imaging under the direct supervision of his/her preceptor radiologist at least twenty-four (24) clinical hours per week.
Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, a student will be able to:
Clinical, lecture, group discussion, written assignments, and student presentations.
Assignments will be submitted electronically as an email attachment using the following guidelines:
IBM compatible format
Word 97 or newer version
Times New Roman or other typical legible font (10 or 12 point for bulk of text)
1" margins on all sides
Student Name, Course number and title, and page number in the header
If a student cannot meet these requirements for electronic submission, he or she should meet individually with the faculty member to make other suitable arrangements.
Due: One at midterm and one at the end of the semester
The Radiologist Preceptor will evaluate the MSU RA student twice a semester (midterm and end of semester) on their overall performance. Evaluation will be sent back to the clinical course instructor directly from the Radiologist. The clinical course instructor will review the grade with the student.
Due: Beginning, midterm and end of semester
Students will develop and submit semester documentation for the clinical course. Each student is expected to submit a documentation that reflects the outcomes of the clinical experience. Documentation should demonstrate completion of established objectives along with evidence of other activities in which the students were involved.
Beginning of semester – email to instructor by due date
Midterm – email to instructor by due date
