Pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes Section 20-74bb(f), a graduate of an accredited radiography program may operate a medical x-ray system for a period not to exceed one hundred twenty (120) calendar days after the date of graduation, provided the graduate is working in a hospital or similar organization where adequate supervision is provided.  If the person practicing pursuant to this subsection fails to pass the licensure examination, all temporary practice privileges shall cease.

Please note that temporary practice provisions only apply to new graduates.  There is no temporary practice provision available to applicants who hold licensure in other states or applicants applying for reinstatement of a lapsed license.

Please also note that a temporary permit document is not issued by the Department.  It is the responsibility of the place of employment to insure that the requirements have been met.
