Exposure to multiple Radiology departments is required, and will provide interactions with avariety of patients, Sonographers, and Radiologists. Each student must become proficient in all areasof these basic skills before the student can successfully complete the program and be eligible to becertified by the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonography.CLINICAL HOURSA certain number of clinical hours are required for each semester. These are cumulative hours, andare not transferrable between semesters. Unless otherwise advised by SIUC faculty, students areexpected to be at clinical during all required hours, excluding a 30-minute lunch period. If a studentdoes not complete these hours during the allotted time she/he may be put on Radiologic SciencesProgram Probation with the possibility of dismissal from the Program. Individual consideration will begiven to the student with a valid excuse after consultation with the Clinical Instructor and designatedSIUC faculty.STUDENT EVALUATION OF CLINICAL EXPERIENCEAt the end of the clinical course the student is required to complete an evaluation of the respectiveclinical experience. This is an opportunity for the student to provide an evaluation of her/his clinicalexperiences. Through candid evaluations, the faculty can identify the strengths and weaknesses of aparticular clinical affiliate and utilize this information for continuing program evaluation. Thisinformation is also useful in matching students with affiliates that rate high in providing clinicalexperiences that may address potential weaknesses.11Revised JULY 2019

The shifts may vary per institution. Students are responsible forconfirming clinical hours with their clinical instructors prior to the first day of clinical. Students may notexceed assigned hours per week unless it is voluntary to make-up missed time. Students may not“bank” hours in advance to take days off. Make-up days are to be completed only during schoolholidays or during designated make-up times.13Revised JULY 2019

HOUSING CONSIDERATIONSStudents in the Diagnostic Medical Sonography specialization of the Radiologic Sciences programsequence who are "off-campus" during their clinic rotations have several decisions to considerregarding housing.Housing Arrangements:1.If you utilize University Housing during "on-campus" semesters, you must contact theHousing Contract Supervisor in advance of your "intent to vacate" and your reasonsfor vacating. (Contact University Housing, at 453-2301.)2.You must submit to the Housing Contract Supervisor a completed copy of thememo developed by ASA Radiologic Sciences for the purpose of vacating.3.You must follow the instructions given you for vacating so that you are notassessed any additional charges.Off-Campus Arrangements:Students are responsible to make their own off-campus housing arrangements.14Revised JULY 2019

CHAPTER 2CLINICAL POLICIESPOLICY MANUALThe student is required to read the Diagnostic Medical Sonography Department Policy Manual atthe beginning the clinical rotation. A form is available on Desire2Learn stating each student hasread and understands the Department Policy Manual. The student must complete and sign thedocument and must then electronically scan and post it in the appropriate drop box on D2L.ATTENDANCE POLICYDuring each semester, there are scheduled clinical days. One personal day may be taken during eachsemester; all other absences must be made-up either during breaks or finals week. Requests for timeoff or any change to the predetermined schedule, including use of the personal day, must be made via“Schedule Change Request” form available on Desire2Learn. The request form must be completed andsubmitted to applicable drop box on D2L at least one week in advance to be considered an excusedabsence. Failure to complete and submit the form in the appropriate manner will result in theabsence being considered unexcused. Each unexcused absence will result in disciplinary actions andthe clinical semester grade will be reduced by one letter grade (the equivalent of 8%). The onlyexceptions to this will be made at the discretion of SIU faculty.Any student missing a total of five excused days during the semester will have their clinical semestergrade lowered one letter grade (or 8%). If a total of six excused days are missed, the grade will belowered two letter grades and the student may be dismissed from the program. If a student isabsent for three or more consecutive days due to illness, it is required that he/she obtain astatement from his/her personal physician attesting to the student's illness or injury, and his/herfitness to return to classes and clinical patient contact.If extenuating circumstances are involved, a committee comprised of clinical and SIUC faculty willreview the situation and make any recommendations.

STUDENT SUPERVION IN THE CLINICAL SETTING POLICYPurpose:To ensure adequate and proper supervision during all clinical assignments.Policy:Students must perform medical imaging procedures under direct or indirect supervision of a qualifiedsonographer. Students shall not take the responsibility or the place of qualified staff. A student isnever to perform a clinical examination without either the direct or indirect supervision of theirassigned sonographer.Indirect supervision- The student will perform an imaging study with the assigned sonographer, bothstudent and sonographer will scan the patient. The sonographer may not be present in the exam roomfor the entire length of the exam, however, the sonographer will be immediately available to assist thestudent. The sonographer is ultimately responsible for the exam.Direct supervision- The student will perform an imaging study with the assigned sonographer, bothstudent and sonographer will scan the patient. The sonographer will be present in the exam room forthe entire length of the exam. The sonographer will always be present to assist the student. Thesonographer is ultimately responsible for the exam.It is encouraged that students perform diagnostic examinations under direct supervision of a qualifiedsonographer until clinical competency is achieved (this does not include pre or post scanning aspractice). As the student improves his/her knowledge of ultrasound, anatomy, physiology, pathology,patho-physiology and clinical competency the clinical instruction may become more indirect to allowthe student time to perfect their scanning skills and gain confidence. The assigned sonographer willalways be immediately available and is always responsible for the exam in progress.21Revised JULY 2019

DUE PROCESS AND GRIEVANCE PROCESSThe Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program Director must address issues in which the student failsto follow the university policies or sonography curriculum guidelines.If issue is related to curriculum or clinical policy, Program Director determines necessary course of action and presents to student.
