Magnetic resonance imaging technologists are highly skilled professionals who use powerful magnets to obtain detailed images of the various structures in the human body. MRI technologists must have the ability to interact effectively with physicians and compassionately with their patients.
Students enrolled in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging program will complete the following courses: Introduction to Magnetic Resonance Imaging (a prerequisite to the clinical experience), Cross Sectional Anatomy & Pathology, and MRI Physics. In addition, the student will complete a clinical education experience that will be done at two approved sites where they will obtain the required clinical competencies for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Upon completion of coursework, clinical education and required competencies, the student will be awarded a certificate of completion and will be eligible to take the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) post-primary certification exam.
