RCC Radiography students rotate through a number of clinical locations in surrounding counties in both North and South Carolina. Students will be required to travel up to 60 miles to participate in their clinical assignments. This mileage is calculated from the RCC Campus. Therefore, it is very important that students have a valid driver’s license and reliable transportation; furthermore, it is the student’s responsibility to cover their own fuel expenses for travel to clinical sites. Program staff will not make exceptions or adjustments in clinical assignments based upon traveling distance.
Students are expected to provide their own transportation to these sites.
Current clinical sites include, Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC), Lumberton Radiological Associates, Allen Orthopedics, SRMC-Urgent Care in Pembroke, Cape Fear Valley-Bladen County Hospital, Scotland Memorial Hospital, Dillon Family Medicine, Southeastern Orthopedic, Columbus Regional Healthcare System, and Cape Fear Valley Medical Center in Fayetteville.
Students will be assigned to didactic and clinical experience not to exceed 40 hours per week (this does not include breaks, lunch, travel, or study time).
Students will be assigned occasional afternoon, evening, and weekend clinical rotations. The clinical coordinator/instructor will post rotation schedules at the beginning of each semester.
Students are not assigned clinical rotation on recognized holidays, but may choose to complete voluntary additional clinical time on those days.
Students receive vacation time according to the College calendar. Summer vacation is scheduled before and/or after the summer session.
