Program Prerequisites

Our prerequisites ensure that you jump right into the technology of Magnetic Resonance Imaging. While it is advantageous for an applicant to have previous experience in diagnostic imaging or have a medical background, it is not required. A successful applicant must first demonstrate the following:

Anatomy and Physiology

Can you walk the walk and talk the talk when it comes to anatomy and physiology?

Medical Terminology

Do you know the difference between the sella tursica and the pituitary gland? How about the largest organ in the human body?

Communication Skills

Oral and Written communication skills. We are not looking for John Steinbeck, just someone that communicates a thought in a logical and concise manner. That's all.

Grasp Abstract Concepts

The ability to grasp abstract concepts & apply them to real world scenarios. Can you teach me what a vector is? In the science world, what is a quantum leap?


Faculty & Staff

We have real practitioners on staff who can educate you and coach you on industry relevant education.
