Radiology Extern Program

SoutheastHEALTH offers radiology students the opportunity to participate in our Radiology Extern Program. The program is designed for the radiology student who would like to advance their imaging skills by working hands on in a fast paced hospital environment. Students who are currently enrolled in their first year of a radiology program are eligible to apply.

As hospital employees, Externs rotate through various departments as they learn and apply imaging skills including patient positioning, assessment, transfer, radiation protection, and anatomy. Externs will also apply medical terminology and computer skills while working in the clerical and transport positions for multiple departments. Flexible scheduling allows externs to work in this capacity while keeping collegiate commitments.

Who is Eligible?

Second year radiology students who are enrolled in an accredited radiography program and who are current in Basic Life Support for healthcare providers (students should provide a copy of CPR card at time of orientation).

Positions are limited, so early application is recommended.

How Do I Apply?

If you are not currently a SoutheastHEALTH employee, please complete online application for employment at SoutheastHEALTH. If you are an employee you will need to fill out a job opportunity form from your current manager.
