 School of Radiography - General Information

Students reviewing x-ray with provider.

Marshfield Clinic School of Radiography is a two-year program that results in a certificate in Radiography. 

Through over 700 hours of didactic instruction and at least 1,900 clinical hours in multiple departments of Marshfield Clinic and Marshfield Medical Center, the student will be well prepared for a career as a radiographer. 

The decision to pursue further schooling or a modality-related career will be an easier decision by the student because of exploration rotations through other imaging modalities like Interventional Radiology, Computerized Tomography, Magnetic Resonance Imaging, Sonography and Radiation Therapy.

The multiple options of employment, the challenging technical aspects of the field, and the fulfilling aspect of great patient care are just a few of the many reasons to choose a career in radiography. 

Clinical experience at one of the largest private, multispecialty group practice clinics in the United States and a 500+ bed tertiary care teaching facility is why students choose to attend the hospital-based Marshfield Clinic School of Radiography.
