It is highly recommended that students complete all of the courses as listed.  Not all courses are taken for the entire semester.  Certain courses must be taken in sequence, no exceptions.

The e-portfolio course requires students to complete a guided Portfolio project providing definement, validations, skills/knowledge validations, verifications of experience and career/job accomplishments and correlations to scholarly course content completions.

The research methodology course sequence prepares students to develop research and writing skills for publications or presentations.  The capstone project of this course sequence culminates with a research project to be submitted to the AAMD Writing Competition with intentions of being published in the Medical Dosimetry Journal.

The Seminar course sequence consists of review questions and answers with a comprehensive exam to demonstrate competence in the core professional courses in the degree program.  The MDCB exam tests on professional coursework, but the student must demonstrate this at UW-L  to receive credit.  These must be taken synchronously with the Fieldwork courses each semester.

The fieldwork course sequence consists of clinical experience at the current place of employment to demonstrate proficiency in the course curriculum similar to the formal program clinical practicum experience.  Most of the curriculum consists of special projects and case studies.
