Health care workers prepare a patient for an MRI.

The deadline to apply for Kellogg Community College’s Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program is Feb. 1; program classes begin in May.

KCC’s MRI Program prepares graduates for certification to become MRI technologists qualified to use powerful magnetic fields, radio waves and computers to create digital images to assist patient diagnosis in hospitals, physician offices and diagnostic imaging centers.

Completion of KCC’s MRI Program results in an Associate of Applied Science degree in Magnetic Resonance Imaging and makes graduates eligible to take the MRI certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT), through which they can earn nationally recognized professional credentials.

KCC is one of seven community college partners that offers the MRI programs as part of the Educational Programs in Collaboration (EPiC) Consortium. The program consists of four academic semesters including two summer sessions, with traditional coursework offered in an online format and clinical education provided off campus at one of 36 clinical sites in Michigan.

Admission to KCC’s MRI Program is competitive, and five students are admitted each year. This year’s application period opened in November and runs through Feb. 1.
