  • Under the direct supervision of qualified mammographers and physicians, each student receives classroom-based and clinical education in mammography.

    Clinical education at the Anne C. Pappas Center for Breast Imaging is a structured experience. Our students learn through:

    • discussions
    • seminars
    • demonstrations
    • supervised practice of standard procedures.

    Each student practices individually with his or her clinical supervisor and/or registered mammographer to ensure close direct supervision, and to allow the student ample experience in all routine and specialized clinical procedures. Clinical progress is documented through an evaluation system. It is the student's responsibility to be available for all classroom presentations.
