Program Details

This course of study focuses on the underlying scientific theory, sectional anatomy, pathology and clinical protocols. Emphasis is placed on patient care and safety, principles of magnetism and the physical and chemical interactions of living matter within magnetic fields.

MRI technologists find careers in a variety of healthcare settings and locations, including hospitals, outpatient clinics, physician’s offices and extended care facilities. Additionally, this advance training empowers graduates for possible careers in medical research, sales, education, administration or supervisory/management positions.

In this program, students learn magnetic resonance physics, equipment operation and methodology, cross-sectional anatomy and patient care, while acquiring hands-on MRI imaging skills.

This program is a 12-month post-associate degree program that provides didactic and clinical instruction to currently certified American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT) or Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and state licensed (as applicable) Radiation Therapy.

Licensure – Employment in this field requires Texas licensure from the Texas Medical Board/ American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (State & National).
