Scholarships
DescriptionYou will begin the three-year program by developing technical imaging expertise through a combination of classroom instruction and lab work in Fanshawe's new digital, state-of-the-art MRT lab. As well, you will gain invaluable hands-on experience by completing a 54-week clinical placement at a hospital in Ontario.
Imaging is both an art and a science. You will study courses such as human anatomy, radiobiology, and radiographic procedures, along with developing your communication and patient care skills to care for a diverse population. Hospital training occurs in the areas of general radiology, emergency departments, operating rooms, intensive care units, and interventional suites. X-ray technologists also perform procedures such as computed tomography (CT) with and without IV contrast injections, angiography, mammography, mobile radiography and more.
When you graduate, you will be eligible to write the national certification exam of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists and go on to work as a Radiological Technologist in the diagnostic imaging department of a hospital or medical clinic.
