Radiography students satisfaction during their practical and clinical training sessions at King Khalid University, Saudi Arabia: A cross-sectional study

Academic and professional work integrated learning is an integral part of tertiary education around the world. This article arises from a research project evaluating radiography students’ satisfaction during their practical and clinical training sessions. The major aim of this study was to determine the extent at which perceived academic and organizational support influences the commitment of radiographers to their learning in practical and clinical hospital settings. 162 students from various levels (junior and senior) were evaluated on the questionnaire for their satisfaction in radiography practical sessions at the university level and clinical training in hospitals. A positive relationship was found between practical and clinical training sessions. Our data strongly suggest that the current management strategies in education play an important role in creating positive learning and potential working environment for radiographers to perform their tasks.
