Curriculum

The Mayo School of Health Sciences Radiography Program is six semesters and designed to be completed in 24 months.

Didactic

Your course work will be taken at both Florida State College at Jacksonville and Mayo Clinic. First year classroom instruction is conducted on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm. Second year classroom instruction is conducted Tuesday and Thursday from 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm.

Clinical rotations

Clinical rotations are scheduled in several areas at Mayo Clinic and Mayo Clinic hospital Department of Radiology. First year clinical rotations are conducted Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 8:00 am to noon and Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. The student may elect to complete one observation rotation at Shands Hospital and one observation rotation at Wolfson's Children's Hospital.

Towards the end of the program, the student will be required to complete one week of 10 hour day shifts (7:00 am to 5:00 pm), 3 evening hours rotations (3:00 pm to 11:00 pm), 2 weekend rotations (7:00 am to 4:00 pm), and 4 night hour rotations (11:00 pm to 7:00 am).

The radiography program requires 2,832 contact hours for both classroom and clinical instruction. Clinical and classroom experiences will not exceed 40 hours per week. Weekdays are given off when weekend clinical classes are scheduled.

Transfer credit for previous general college course work may be accepted by 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 course work, which is specific to radiography, is not accepted.

Grading or evaluation

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

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

Our 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 available in the program offices.

Student pregnancy

Should the 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 very best education programs. Changes may be made to the curriculum and other aspects of this program as necessary to assure the highest-quality training.
