Mammography Policy

All students, male or female will be given an opportunity to complete a mammography rotation. If requested, the program will make every effort to place a male in a mammography rotation, however the program cannot override clinical setting policies that only allow female students complete rotations. Placement for male students is not guaranteed and depends on availability of a clinical site that allows male students to participate.
