Medical Radiation Technology

Master the science and art of capturing and analyzing the inner structure of the human body with hands-on experience in Cambrian's radiographic and patient simulation labs. Areas of study will include anatomy and physiology, procedures and protocols, patient care, imaging concepts and equipment, pathology and image acquisition. Students will demonstrate proficiency in general radiographic procedures, fluoroscopy and CT scanning.

As a student in this program, you will gain the knowledge, skills and ability to support the medical team by providing diagnostic quality images with excellent patient care expertise. Students work and study in an inter-professional environment to provide safe patient centered care while maintaining Medical Radiation Technology standards of practice. Students develop the core professional competencies required of an entry-to-practice Medical Radiation Technologist during a full calendar year placement at one of our affiliated hospital partners. During clinical practice, there is an emphasis on the demonstration of team member, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Upon completion of the clinical portion of the program, graduates write the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologist’s certification exam to be eligible to work in Ontario and throughout the country.

As a graduate of the program you may be employed in a hospital setting or an independent health facility. Medical Radiation Technologists provide imaging services to most departments of a clinical facility including the trauma unit, operating room, and intensive care area as well as the diagnostic imaging department.

Limited enrolment - 35 seats available.
