BS Medical Radiation Technology Program

Imaging is both an art and a science. The MRT program incorporates courses such as human anatomy and physiology, radiobiology and radiographic procedures, along with communication and patient care skills to care for and deal with diverse patient populations. Hospital training occurs in the areas of general radiology, emergency departments, operating rooms, intensive care units, and interventional units. MRT technologists also perform procedures such as computed tomography (CT) with and without IV contrast injections, angiography, mammography, etc… Through theory, simulation practice and extensive clinical experiences, students will acquire the ability to produce quality images to assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of multiple system disorders.

The program prepares students with the knowledge and technical skills required to produce diagnostic images and carry out diagnostic procedures in the role of a Medical Radiation Technologist. The main goals of the MRT program are to graduate competent Medical Radiography Technologists by providing:

  1. Quality education with an integration of didactic and clinical practice
  2. Multifaceted learning opportunities in a safe environment
  3. Environments conducive to developing professional skills required to foster patients’ safety and well-being in all clinical settings
  4. Critical thinking opportunities focusing on MRT competencies while fulfilling program requirements
  5. Professional best practice opportunities to enable graduates to become integral members of the healthcare team
  6. Opportunities to develop lifelong learning skills

N.B. Medical Radiography is not a hazardous occupation. The dangers of radiation are well recognized and rigidly controlled.
