The Medical Radiography Program, including the internship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, is 21.5 months, based on 40 hours a week. The GateWay Community College Medical Radiography Program has been training radiographers since 1968.
During the program, approximately 1,800 hours of clinical experience are obtained in addition to classroom hours accumulated at the GateWay campus. A minimum grade of C must be received in all courses. All diagnostic medical imaging courses in a given semester, which are identified with the prefix "DMI" on the schedule in the program information packet, must be satisfactorily completed before the student is allowed to enroll in the following semester.
Students are expected to attend all clinical courses between semesters, during spring break and during the summer.
Mayo School of Health Sciences is committed to developing and maintaining the best education programs. The curriculum and other aspects of this program are assessed constantly and changed as necessary to ensure the highest quality training.
