Abstract:

The clinical instructor has the major role in the professional growth of the interns. It is best to determine these qualities and effectiveness as it affects the clinical performance of the radiologic technology interns. This study aimed to determine the factors in the supervisory practices of the radiologic technology clinical instructors as they are involved in the ‘hands on” practices of the interns in the clinical setting. To determine

these, the study used a modified questionnaire taken from different studies which is composed of two parts Demographic Profile and Supervisory Practices. The interns’ evaluation sheet from the Department of Radiologic Technology was used for the evaluation of clinical performance rated by the clinical instructors. The result of the study revealed that most of the clinical instructors are young adults with short working experience as radiologic technologists; majority of them are males and BSRT graduates working in private tertiary hospitals a full time radiologic technologists. Moreover, their supervisory practices to the interns are described as “moderately supervised’’ while the clinical performance of the interns falls under “very good’’ level.
