Allied health program admissions are based on academic achievement and additional program specific non-academic criteria that can be referenced in the catalog. Essential Requirements have been established by each program identifying the occupational specific technical standards required of students in the program. Meeting these standards is necessary for students to become successful in both their clinical coursework and later in their profession. Decisions to apply for admission to the Magnetic Resonance Program should be made after considering the program Essential Requirements.
It is the responsibility of this program to be concerned with the rights of patients and fieldwork sites and to only place students in fieldwork that are capable of providing safe, high quality health care. The following list represents reasonable expectations for the student enrolled in the Magnetic Resonance Program at WU.
It is the responsibility of the program applicants to carefully review the essential requirements and ask questions if not familiar with the standards and skills listed. Certain chronic or recurrent illnesses and problems that interfere with patient care or safety may be incompatible with fieldwork practice. Conditions that may lead to a high likelihood of student absenteeism should be carefully considered. Deficiencies in knowledge, judgment, integrity, character, or professional attitude or demeanor which may jeopardize patient care may be grounds for course/fieldwork failure and possible dismissal from the program. All applicants to the program must have the ability to meet the standards and skills listed below if accepted to the program in order to complete the educational requirements for the certificate in Magnetic Resonance.
If a student cannot demonstrate the following standards and skills without accommodation, it is the responsibility of the student to request an appropriate accommodation with the Student Services Office (Morgan Hall, Room 135, 785-670-1629) by the application deadline. The College is committed to the principle of equal opportunity as defined in the catalog and will provide reasonable accommodation as long as it does not fundamentally alter the nature of the program offered and does not compromise patient safety, or impose an undue hardship such as those that cause a significant expense or are unduly disruptive to the educational process.
