Radiology Clinical Assignments

After the student has been selected into the professional component, they will be placed at a participating clinical site. Final acceptance of the student at a specific clinical site is made by the participating facility in conjunction with the clinical coordinator and program director. Requests by students for specific clinical assignments cannot be considered.

  1. Most clinical assignments are within a 50 mile radius of OCC's Southfield Campus. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from all clinical assignments.
  2. Student clinical rotations are primarily during day shift (6am–5:00pm variable 8 hour shifts – site dependent).  In the last two semesters of the program, students will complete 4 weeks of afternoon shift (2:00pm-12:00am, variable 8-hour shifts - site dependent), in each of the semesters (equaling 8 weeks total).
  3. Didactic courses are held at various times, during the day and in the evening.
  4. Students provide their own uniforms (hospital scrubs).
  5. Clean, neat professional appearance is required at all times.  No visible body piercing or tattoos.
  6. Stringent policies are applied regarding didactic/clinical grades. No student is permitted to continue in the program if a final grade lower than 75% is received in any course- didactic or clinical.
  7. Stringent policies regarding "missed" clinical days are also applied. Any time missed due to illness, etc. must be made up prior to the end of a given semester.

Students are assigned to a specific hospital beginning in the Fall Semester.  The following May, students are moved to a different hospital, where they will complete their clinical education.  Students attend clinical and campus classes according to the following schedule: 

  • FALL clinical= 2 days/week AND class= 2 days
  • WINTER clinical= 3 days/week AND class=2 days
  • SPRING clinical= 3 days/week AND class= 2 - (1/2) days
  • FALL clinical= 4 days/week AND class= 1 day
  • WINTER clinical= 4 days/week AND class= 1 day

The Radiologic Technology Program is currently affiliated with the following hospitals:
