The MRAD Skills Assessment Exam is designed for students applying for re-admission to Level Two (2) of the Medical Radiography program. Readmission is not guaranteed. To be granted re-admission to Level Two (2,) the student must successfully demonstrated competency in clinical skills; there must be a clinical seat available for the student; and the student must review a success plan with the program head. This course is open for the term to provide the student with access to the medical radiography positioning and critique labs to prepare for the assessment.
