CUMBERLAND COUNTY COLLEGE RADIOGRAPHY PROGRAM
CLINICAL PRACTICUM AND FILM EVALUATION
RT 202
Students will orient to hospital radiology departments, their procedures and equipment as
they begin new clinical rotation assignments. Orientation to ancillary areas such as front
desk, file room, dark room and transportation should be completed within the first week
of assignments within the radiology department.
For successful completion of this segment of the clinical practicum, students are required
to:
 complete two (2) competency evaluations in exams in which competency has been
established in prior clinical practicum courses
 continue to establish competency within the clinical situation on those procedures for
which a laboratory competency has been achieved
 assist a qualified radiographer in those procedures for which laboratory competency
has not been established
 demonstrate professionalism and high quality patient care.
Students should be working toward the goal of completing the required mandatory
procedures for which a patient clinical competency is required. A minimum of 22 initial
competencies must be successfully completed to achieve a passing grade for this
semester.
Image evaluation sessions will be scheduled regularly to enable the students to
analyze completed radiographs for visualization of anatomical structures and technical
quality. Laboratory sessions will be scheduled as needed to reinforce classroom activities
and enable students to practice and gain confidence in radiographic procedures.
CLINICAL ROOM SCHEDULES: Students will rotate in the areas of general
radiography, fluoroscopy, emergency room, computed tomography, operating room, and
portable radiography. Focus will be placed on radiography of the head. General
radiographic/fluoroscopic rotations will be two weeks in length; others will be weekly or
daily, dependent upon the volume of examinations.
CLINICAL ATTENDANCE: As published in the Radiography Handbook, students are
entitled to 2 days of clinical absences per semester. Those students with absences
exceeding 2 days will complete supplemental clinical education assignments. These
assignments will correlate to the missed clinical experiences and allow for the completion
of competency requirements. The appropriate form for supplemental assignments will be
completed by the student and clinical instructor and kept in the student’s clinical book.
