Students have some flexibility in how they approach the required program studies, however there are some guiding principles:
1.If the sectional anatomy courses (BHSC courses) were done in conjunction with another program (eg. CT program) they must not have been done any earlier than five years before the start of the first MRI course (MIMG course). If the time period is longer than five years the courses will need to be repeated or challenged.
2.The MRI courses (MIMG 7200, 7202 and 7204) must be completed within eighteen months before the start of the 16 week practicum.
Students are advised to start the program by completing one or two sectional anatomy courses, which can be taken in any order, except BHSC 7604, which should be done closer to the clinical practicum. Two of the MRI physics courses (MIMG) have pre-requisites so the courses must be taken in consecutive numerical order in separate terms: MIMG 7200 first, then MIMG 7202, and lastly MIMG 7204.
A suggested approach for completing the program is as follows:
Term 1.................BHSC 7601 (or 7602 or 7603)
Term 2................ MIMG 7200 and BHSC 7602 (or 7601 or 7603)
Term 3.................MIMG 7202 and BHSC 7603 (or 7602 or 7601)
Term 4.................MIMG 7204 and BHSC 7604
Term 5................MIMG 6200 MRI Clinical Practicum. See Procedure for Arranging an MRI Clinical Practicum
Any other approach should be discussed with the Program Head to ensure that it will meet your learning goals and BCIT's
For students who are not successful at the CAMRT MR Certification examination, remedial assistance is available via a clinical tutor
who will guide you and provide instructional support in preparation for re-writing the certification examination.
CAMRT preparation guide and practice exams
Online practice exams are available for registered students. These exams are for review only and do not count towards program marks. Students
can do these exams while doing their clinical. The exams are also available to remedial students.
