Clinical Elective Experience
The Clinical Elective Experience is a noncredit opportunity to explore this profession. To gain a better understanding of the field of radiologic science, observation in the clinical setting is advised. Tours are conducted at UNC Hospitals. During these tours, you experience the clinical environment in which radiologic technologists / sonographers work. Considering the sensitive nature of patient privacy, you will be required to complete online confidentiality training and sign a form before beginning the tour.
It is also possible to contact alumni to inquire about observation opportunities. Our alumni practice in many different careers nationwide and they welcome the opportunity to meet prospective students.
Due to pandemic precautions, the Clinical Elective Experience pre-admission tour is currently on hold; however, our educational programs (BS, Certificate, and RA) are still open and in progress! We are happy to talk with you about our programs and about our upcoming admissions cycles.
