1.5 - Lines of Authority

Respect lines of authority, recognizing that faithful execution of the physician’s orders for the patient is a cornerstone of good patient care and proper medical ethics.  In the clinic affiliates, students should observe the appropriate line of authority with respect to clinical assignments and activities.

The chief or supervising technologist and technologist instructor are the immediate authority in the clinical setting. With respect to your academic training, these individuals work with and under the general guidance of your program director, the faculty and chairperson of the department in providing and supervising your clinical experience.
