|Diploma in Medical Radiography
Through the combination of rigorous academic study and practicum experience, students learn the art and science of performing diagnostic radiographic medical imaging procedures with competence, compassion, and the highest level of professionalism.
Leveled academic content with integrated simulation and clinical experiences allow students to demonstrate gradual attainment of competency in a learner-centric environment. Students experience a variety of approaches to educational delivery, including traditional face-to-face classroom instruction, practical simulation labs, enhanced courses combining face-to-face instruction with online learning supports, and exclusively on-line courses.
On campus, students utilize state-of-the-art educational tools such as: life-size adult and pediatric phantoms (simulated human bodies), digital radiographic units, and a fully-integrated online learning management system to prepare them for each of three different practicums at our partner sites. During each practicum, students develop and enhance their clinical skills and judgment by engaging in hands-on care in a rapidly evolving health care system. Students demonstrate progress through graduated levels of competence while applying their growing knowledge and skills to diverse practice situations in a collaboratively supervised clinical environment.
Career/Academic Advancement Opportunities
A certified Medical Radiation Technologist (MRT) can pursue advanced practice roles through continuing professional development or completing additional certifications. Other professional opportunities for the certified MRT could include administration, management, leadership, teaching, vendor sales, information technology, and research.
Students who complete this accredited, 24-month continuous study program will receive a Diploma in Medical Radiography. Graduates of the program will be eligible to write the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) Certification. Many international credentialing agencies accept a Canadian diploma in Medical Radiography as a criterion for certification examination.
Graduates of the Medical Radiography Program are able to demonstrate the entry-to-practice capabilities for Medical Radiation Technologists as outlined by the CAMRT. Diploma graduates of the Medical Radiography program are also eligible for a variety of Canadian and international programs that offer Bachelor’s degrees in Health Science or related disciplines.
