Clinical Internship Experience

The senior year will be spent in a clinical internship at one of the following sites:

  • University of Wisconsin Hospital - Madison, Wisconsin
  • University of Chicago Hospital - Chicago, Illinois
  • Froedtert Memorial Lutheran Hospital - Milwaukee, Wisconsin
  • Gundersen Lutheran Hospital - La Crosse, Wisconsin
  • Advocate Lutheran General Hospital - Park Ridge, Illinois

The internship will start in early July following the junior year and will continue until late July of the next year (approximately 13 months).  CPR certification must be attained prior to or at the beginning of the internship.  The following courses will be taught at the internship sites.  Students must maintain a grade of "C" or better in any of the RT courses to stay in good standing in the major.  A course grade below a "C" in any of the RT Clinical Practicum courses will place the student on probation in the major.
