Anyone interested in a career as a magnetic resonance technologist now has the opportunity to pursue their degree at Owens Community College as the academic institution's School of Health Sciences unveils a new magnetic resonance associate degree program.
Beginning with summer semester 2013, the new academic program is being offered on the Perrysburg Township campus. The two-year associate degree program recently received formal approval by the Ohio Board of Regents.
Owens' associate degree in magnetic resonance will require approximately 73 credit hours of coursework, which includes magnetic resonance imaging patient care and safety, medical ethics, medical informatics, medical resonance instrumentation, pharmacology for medical resonance technologists and medical sociology, among other academic curriculum.
The new associate degree is designed to prepare students for employment as magnetic resonance technologists in such health-specific settings as hospitals, clinics and private offices. During the program, students will study patient care, human anatomy, physiology, pathology, radiopharmacology, imaging procedures, medical resonance physics, ethics and medical terminology, as well as utilize leading-edge academic resources for experiential learning, including state-of-the-art medical resonance imaging simulator technology.
Additionally, the selective admissions program requires over 1,200 hours of clinical experience in partnership with magnetic resonance departments throughout the region. Following students can sit for the national certification examination to become a certified magnetic resonance technologist administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.
