In 2003, AMIT began offering a Certificate program to provide an avenue for post-baccalaureate students who were unwilling or unable to pursue a second baccalaureate or an advanced degree.

Applicants to the AMIT Certificate program must have earned a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution prior to program matriculation.  It is highly recommended that the degree be in allied health, biology, biomedical engineering, chemistry, physics, nursing, or other medical related fields.  If the applicant has not completed such a degree, it will be highly recommended that the applicant complete a set of courses or their equivalents with a C- or better in addition to their baccalaureate degree. (See Admissions Requirements page for more details)

Upon acceptance to the Advanced Medical Imaging Technology professional education curriculum, students will combine classroom and clinical training to become competent in one medical imaging specialties.  The imaging modalities available to study are: Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Nuclear Medicine Technology.

Upon completion of the professional curriculum, certificate students are eligible to sit for national board exams, a necessity in nearly all healthcare fields.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging

Magnetic Resonance Imaging is the medical specialty that utilizes magnetic fields and their properties in the diagnosis of disease and the analysis of human anatomy.  Training in Magnetic Resonance Imaging is twelve consecutive months in duration and will be delivered through a combination of classroom lecture, labs, and clinical site placements.  Students successfully completing the curriculum will have fulfilled requirements to sit for the nationally administered board examinations.
