The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program at UNMC offers students the opportunity to obtain classroom and clinical experience related directly to magnetic resonance imaging.
Candidates for the MRI Program must have completed 32 specific college prerequisites, an accredited radiography program, and be ARRT certified. The course of study involves classes in cross sectional anatomy, physiology, MRI physics, radiation biology, research methodologies, radiologic pharmacology, and clinical rotations where students gain practical experience in fast-paced, supervised, environments.
Upon completion of the 9-month curriculum, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Radiation Science Technology or a Post-Baccalaureate Professional Certificate is awarded. Graduates are eligible to sit for the MRI Certification Examination offered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
