Program description

Mayo Clinic School of Health Sciences at Mayo Clinic's campus in Phoenix/Scottsdale, Arizona, offers a clinical internship in cooperation with the Medical Radiography Program at GateWay Community College in Phoenix.

Radiography is an exciting and challenging career involving the use of highly sophisticated equipment to create X-rays. X-rays are anatomical images that are used by physicians to diagnose disease, injury or disability. Radiographers have direct patient contact in clinic and hospital settings and are valuable members of the health care team.
