Curriculum

The Radiography Program is six semesters and designed to be completed in 24 months.

Didactic coursework

Your coursework is completed at both Florida State College at Jacksonville and Mayo Clinic. First-year classroom instruction is conducted on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Second-year classroom instruction is conducted Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m.

Clinical rotations

Clinical rotations are scheduled in several areas at Mayo Clinic, including the Department of Radiology. First-year clinical rotations are conducted Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and Tuesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

The student may elect to complete one observation rotation at University of Florida Health Shands Hospital and one observation rotation at Wolfson Children's Hospital.

In the second year of the program, students are required to complete five evening rotations (11 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.) and five Saturday rotations (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). The Radiography Program requires 400 didactic hours and 2,228 clinical hours. Clinical and classroom experiences do not exceed 40 hours a week. Weekdays are given off when weekend clinical classes are scheduled.

Course sequence

There are a total of 29 credits at Florida State College at Jacksonville and 63 credits at Mayo Clinic throughout the Radiography Program.

Transfer credit for previous general college coursework may be accepted by Florida State College at Jacksonville (FSCJ). This could reduce your academic load early in the program, but will not reduce the 24 months required to graduate. Transfer credit from other radiography program coursework that is specific to radiography is not accepted.

The student must complete 13 semester credits from the list below prior to applying to the program. The remaining prerequisite courses must be completed by the end of semester 1.

Grading or evaluation

Mayo School of Health Sciences uses student evaluative tools that include:

  • Written examination
  • Demonstration of skills
  • Self-assessment exercises
  • Faculty reviews

Mayo's system of evaluation provides students and faculty with a comprehensive look at individual performance. This allows faculty and administrative staff to direct students who are experiencing academic difficulty to the appropriate support resources, including tutoring programs and counseling opportunities.

Students must maintain a scholastic average of C or better throughout the program. All academic policies are in complete detail in the student handbook, which is available in the program office.

Student pregnancy

Should a student become pregnant during the course of the program, she may elect to continue in the program with no interruption, request a partial leave of absence or request a complete leave of absence. This may lengthen the program for the student. Complete details are located in the student handbook.

Curriculum enhancements

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.
