Advanced Medical Imaging Technology Direct Admission

A Direct Admissions program is available for UC's Advanced Medical Imaging Technology program that gives students early admission into their clinical years.

The campus-based bachelor's degree in Advanced Medical Imaging Technology (AMIT) at the University of Cincinnati includes courses that will fulfill general education requirements and additional coursework in the areas of anatomy, physiology, physics, chemistry, algebra, trigonometry, and pathophysiology in the fist two years. The final two years for the AMIT major are two professional curriculum years of study and clinical experience, which includes specialized course work in the fields of Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and hospital rotation placements.

Admission to the clinical year is competitive. Highly qualified candidates may be offered direct admission to the clinical cohort concurrent with first-year acceptance to the university. As long as you maintain the minimum qualifications throughout your education, you will automatically be given admission to the clinical years. 

If you do not qualify for direct admission, you can still gain entry into the clinical year by participating in a secondary application process during your second year.
