MRT Education in BC

British Columbia Institute of Technology

The BCIT Medical Radiography program has been designed to integrate the academic environment with the clinical setting. The program is 24 continuous months with terms alternating between didactic studies and clinical practicums.

While at BCIT, students receive theoretical and practical instruction through lectures and labs using face-to-face, blended and online learning opportunities. Throughout the clinical practicums, students continue with their academic studies via online courses. Each clinical practicum is completed at a different clinical site to ensure students receive a variety of experiences.

The clinical structure supports the program’s philosophy of creating opportunities for students to learn, understand, and then apply the outcomes in real world situations with mentoring and feedback. The clinical levels interleaved with academic reinforcement have been designed to promote confidence, competence and professional practice through repetition of the “learn, understand and apply” cycle.

 

Camosun College

Camosun College offers students a unique, learner-centred Medical Radiography education focused on quality professional preparation through: relevant, authentic learning experiences, access to state-of-the-art equipment and technology, teaching to best practice guidelines, and collaboratively supervised clinical practicums with hands-on patient care.  In partnership with the Vancouver Island Health Authority, students gain clinical experience in Medical Imaging departments of various sizes across Vancouver Island.  The Camosun College Medical Radiography Program and labs are relocating to the new Alex & Jo Campbell Centre for Health and Wellness in late 2019 where students will have greater access to interdisciplinary education opportunities in our Simulation Centre and Teaching Clinic.  Graduates completing the 24-month program are eligible to sit for the national certification exam offered by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT).  Camosun College’s Medical Radiography Program is fully accredited by Accreditation Canada, EQual through July 31, 2020.

College of New Caledonia

The College of New Caledonia (CNC) in partnership with Northern Health offers a Medical Radiography Technology program. This nationally accredited program prepares graduates to write the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) national certification exam.

The CNC Medical Radiography Technology program is structured as a continuous 24 month format and utilizes a provincial curriculum. Students alternate through didactic training at CNC and clinical practicum training at health care facilities in northern BC. The opportunity for simulated and virtual learning environments is provided to complement the didactic and clinical learning atmosphere.

The CNC Medical Radiography program provides Medical Radiography Technologists with the skill, knowledge, and professional attitudes needed to function as valuable members of the health care team and Radiography community
