|Description:||Medical radiation technologists (MRT) are health care professionals who provide patient-centered care in an inter-professional environment. Using problem-solving and critical thinking skills, MRTs acquire quality radiographic and CT images to assist in the diagnosis of trauma and disease processes.
As a student in this program, you will gain the knowledge, skills, and ability to support medical teams by providing diagnostic-quality images with excellent patient care expertise. You will develop the core professional competencies required of an entry-to-practice MRT during a full calendar year placement at one of our affiliated hospital partners.
This is a physically and mentally demanding profession and will require you to be in good physical health and have the ability to lift heavy patients, stand for long periods of time, and have strong visual and hearing acuity.
