MRI Clinical Requirements

Occupational Program Preparation Courses

To encourage success in the MRI program courses and safe practice in the clinical setting, students completing BIO 201, Human Anatomy and BIO 202, Human Physiology more than five years prior to starting the MRI Program may be required to repeat the courses. Determination will be made by the MiRIS Educational Coordinator and Director of Medical Imaging Programs.

For technologists interested in applying to the program, completion of PHYS 109, Introduction to MRI Physics is strongly encouraged if a foundational understanding of physics principles has lapsed. PHYS 109 prepares the student for success in the MRI Program physics courses.
