An Inside Look at Radiography

Many students, when deciding on a college or major, like to participate in job shadowing so that they can get an idea of what the job entails, or if it is a good fit. However, due to COVID-19, most hospitals have suspended in-person job shadowing experiences. To help you get a better idea of what it's like to be a radiographer, you can experience job shadowing virtually with the videos below. 

Please note that participating in this virtual job shadowing does not replace the job shadowing requirements for selection into the program. Program staff can assist you in identifying sites for this experience.
