Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology
The Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology (BSMIT) program is designed to provide students seeking additional education beyond the Associate Degree in Radiography and offers course work and/or clinical field experience in Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), Cardiovascular Imaging (CV) and Ultrasound (US).
The BS curriculum educates the registered radiographer to become practiced in a specific imaging modality or complete nonclinical work over a variety of medical imaging modalities. Students must graduate from an accredited AS program before joining the BSMIT program. Courses for the BSMIT degree include, Medical Imaging Technology Principles and Procedures, Sectional Imaging Anatomy and Pathology, Medical Ethics, and Research in Medical Imaging Technology. A clinical practicum or internship is required in a 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. Additional information about the ARDMS can be found at www.ardms.org
About the Program
The BSMIT program is entirely online, except for the clinical practicums and internships. Students in a clinical practicum or internship must have 24-34 hours of clinical experience each week. The program can be completed within two semesters, unless a student chooses to pursue ultrasound, which are additional summer semesters. The courses for ultrasound students are not entirely online and the courses are in a hybrid format.
