Prestigious Internship Opportunities

Students who are accepted to the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse Medical Dosimetry program are offered prestigious clinical opportunities during the internship year from some of the most reputable institutions in the profession. Although our program is affiliated with more than 70 internship sites at any given time, we only place students at 25-30 facilities each cohort year.

  • Applicants: Not all sites will be available in a given year. If you are chosen to proceed to the interview phase, a list of available clinical sites will be provided to you. If you have concerns about whether specific clinical sites are going to be active for the upcoming academic year, please contact mdprogram@uwlax.edu.

Notice to Applicants about Internship

Employment: This is a full time, 16 month graduate program. During the 16 month program, the clinical internship portion takes place from January - December (12 months in length). During the clinical internship year, you will be in school 40 hours per week (didactic and clinical) in addition to homework in the evening and weekends. Therefore, working is not a viable option. Students who attempted working more than a few hours per day were unsuccessful.

Criminal Background Check: You will be required to complete a criminal background check after accepting placement in the program. Please be aware that a felony charge may affect your ability to obtain clinical placements and/or sit for the board examination.

Immunizations: We respect that a student may elect to not receive immunizations for personal or medical reasons.  Students who have a medical condition that precludes them from receiving immunizations may be asked to provide additional documentation from a medical provider.  Clinical affiliates must comply with their organization's policy regarding immunizations and as such may decline a student without required immunizations or medical documentation.  Students should be aware that this may impact options for clinical education experiences and progression through the medical dosimetry curriculum.
