The Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging at South College is designed to provide advanced training for current radiologic technologists, nuclear medicine technologists, ultrasound technologists, and radiation therapists.
In this 6-month program, students have the opportunity to learn to competently apply basic protocols of MRI, recognize when and how to appropriately alter standard protocol, recognize equipment and patient considerations that affect image quality, and maintain a safe MRI environment.

This is a demanding post-degree program, so dedication and a strong work ethic are necessary for success. Because this field includes both frequent patient contact and sensitive machinery, MRI technologists need to be safety-minded and detail oriented with strong communication and interpersonal skills in order to distinguish themselves.
Both the institution and the faculty are deeply committed to our students through every step of their academic journeys. During your time in this program, you will have frequent access to experienced faculty members and resource support.
This is South College’s most advanced program in Magnetic Resonance Imaging. We offer numerous programs in other healthcare specialties.

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.
