The Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology (BSMIT) program is designed to provide students seeking additional education beyond the Associate Degree in Radiograph and offers course work and/or clinical field experience in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Cardiac Interventional Radiography (CI), Interventional Radiography (VI), Mammography (M), and Ultrasound (US). The BS MIT Program also offers a nonclinical track to allow registered technologists to ear their bachelor’s degree.
The BS curriculum educates the registered radiographer to become well versed in a specific imaging modality or complete nonclinical work over a variety of medical imaging modalities. Students must graduate from an accredited AS program or have a certificate before joining the BSMIT program. Courses for the BSMIT degree include:
- Medical Imaging Technology Principles and Procedures
- Multiplanar Imaging Anatomy and Pathology
- Medical Ethics
- Research in Medical Imaging Technology
There are four possible pathways a student can proceed within the BSMIT program. Each pathway requires review by the Program Director before admittance.
- Clinical Practicum – Student will complete clinical hours in a chosen modality at a local affiliate site.
- Internship – Student working at a medical facility in declared modality, can count working hours as clinical hours (site must have current open position).
- Non-Clinical – Student chooses to take elective courses instead of clinical practicum.
- Special credit for post-primary certification – Post-primary certification beyond a primary pathway will be given special credit.
A clinical practicum or internship is offered in each specific modality. A student may substitute the clinical practicum or internship with especial credit if the student has a post-primary imaging license. For students in a clinical practicum or some internships, the program will allow the student to gain repetitions and clinical hours to be able to sit for the national credentialing exam sponsored by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) or the Association of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) for ultrasound.
