Successful MRI technologists need to be self-motivated and committed, with a strong work ethic. Excellent patient care skills and the ability to be flexible and adaptable in a clinical care setting are also important. Because this field includes both frequent patient contact and sensitive machinery, MRI technologists need to be safety-minded and detail-oriented.
South College is committed to supporting our students in any way we can, starting with small class sizes, experienced faculty, regular one-on-one advising, available tutors, and the Writing and Math Labs to provide help with core skills. Our faculty members have close relationships with authorities in the field to assist with job placement and board examination preparation.

I chose South College because it came highly recommended from mentors of mine, the faculty is second to none, and the program fits my ever-changing lifestyle. I also chose it because of the flexibility. My wife is still serving in the United States Air Force on Active Duty, and this means that we move when they tell us to move.

One of the major reasons I chose South College was for the smaller class sizes. It allows more one-on-one time between students and professors, which enhances the learning experience for me.

I went to college originally straight out of high school with the intent of majoring in musical performance with a concentration in theoretical studies. I was not prepared to for college at that point, so I decided to gain some experience and maturity by joining the work force full-time. After working for 10 years, I felt it was time to try school again.
