CUMBERLAND COUNTY COLLEGE RADIOGRAPHY PROGRAM
CLINICAL PRACTICUM AND FILM EVALUATION
RT 103
The goal of this first clinical practicum will be to:







Communicate with patients
Use medical terminology
Understand and become involved with the flow of people and paper within a
radiology department
Begin utilizing patient care skills
Observe and assist staff radiographers with radiographic procedures
Use radiographic equipment
Practice the procedures on which simulated competency examinations have been
completed
The first several weeks of clinical rotations will be used to orient students to hospitals,
radiology departments, infection control policies, fire and safety regulations, public
relations, legal and ethical issues, body mechanics, and “right to know” workplace
information.
Students will participate in a tour of their assigned clinical education center and its
departments and become familiar with the role and responsibilities of students within a
radiology department.
Students will then be scheduled for rotations in the following areas:
Area
Quality Assurance
Darkroom/Image Processing
Front desk area
File area
Transportation
Radiographic room
Fluoroscopic room
Purpose
Work flow and film hanging
Film processing
Evaluating requests and office procedures
Finding patients’ previous films & reports
Practicing lifting and moving techniques
Room readiness and equipment operation
Room readiness, equipment operation, and
visualization of patient protection equipment
Students will be directly supervised throughout all activities.
Once a laboratory competency has been completed in the classroom, students may take
an active role in the radiography of patients. If laboratory competencies have not been
successfully completed, students may observe and assist a radiographer.

Film evaluation sessions will be scheduled each semester. These sessions will be used
initially to orient students to the radiology department and to practice hanging films on a
view box. As the semester progresses, film evaluation sessions will be used to evaluate
films of the procedures presented in RT 102.
Laboratory practice sessions will be scheduled as needed. These sessions will be used to
demonstrate and allow students to become familiar with all of the general radiographic
equipment and accessory items. Students having difficulty with any procedures will be
given guidance during lab sessions.
GRADING PROCEDURES: Grades for this semester will be based on the average of
the following three components:
1. performance evaluations
2. film evaluations
3. the number of competencies achieved (see competency goal sheet)
A minimum of one (1) clinical competency evaluation must be achieved to successfully
complete this semester, regardless of other clinical grades earned. A grade of 90% or
above is passing for all clinical competency evaluations.
A = 92 - 100
B = 83 - 91
C = 75 - 82
D = 68 - 74
CLINICAL ATTENDANCE: As published in the Radiography Handbook, students are
allowed 2 clinical absences per semester. Those students with absences exceeding 2 days
will complete supplemental clinical education assignments at the end of the semester.
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 clinical book.
