Clinical Internship

The Clinical Internship portion of the program requires a minimum of 280 clinical hours.  AHU will work with the clinical site and the student to develop a specific clinical schedule to complete these hours. Completion of the clinical experience requirements set forth by the American Registry of Radiologic Technology (ARRT) is the responsibility of the individual student.  The appropriate number of examinations will be completed at the individual student’s assigned clinical site.  The clinical requirements can be found on the ARRT website under the Educator’s Guide on Post-Primary Examinations.

Clinical placement is not guaranteed on admission to the program.  Students may be required to submit additional documentation or meet specific obligations required of individual clinical sites; including, but not limited to, a copy of their current CPR certification through the American Heart Association, proof of mask FIT test, copy of current immunizations, proof of the Flu shot, copy of background check and/or drug screening, recommendation letter, essay, or a candidate interview.  Students will be informed by the Clinical Coordinator prior to the start of the Clinical Internship if any of these documents are required.
