“Getting to go to clinical was the highlight of my program experience. I got to be involved in and see things I never imagined I would as a student. Preforming actual x-rays on patients, getting experience being a technologist in the operating room, and working with and leaning from amazing health care professionals were just a few of my favorite parts.”
