MAMMOGRAPHY AND GENDER SPECIFIC EXAMS

The radiography program sponsored by Dixie State University has revised its policy, effective November 28, 2016, regarding the placement of students in mammography clinical rotations to observe and/or perform breast imaging. Additionally, this policy may be applied to any imaging procedure performed by professionals who are of the opposite gender of the patient.

Under the revised policy, all students, male and female, will be offered the opportunity to participate in mammography clinical rotations. The program will make every effort to place a male student in a mammography clinical rotation if requested; however, the program is not in a position to override clinical setting policies that restrict clinical experiences in mammography to female students. Male students are advised that placement in a mammography rotation is not guaranteed and is subject to the availability of a clinical setting that allows males to participate in mammography imaging procedures. The program will not deny female students the opportunity to participate in mammography rotations if clinical settings are not available to provide the same opportunity to male students.

The change in the program’s policy regarding student clinical rotations in mammography is based on the sound rationale presented in a position statement on student mammography clinical rotations adopted by the Board of Directors of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) at its April 2016 meeting. The JRCERT position statement is included as part of Addendum B to the program’s policy and is also available on the JRCERT website, jrcert.org, Programs& Faculty; Program Resources.
