Program Outcomes & Links
The nuclear medicine technology curriculum and the magnetic resonance imaging curriculum are accredited by separate accrediting agencies. It is common for accrediting agencies to require programs to publish their graduation outcomes as a means of informing potential students and other stakeholders of a program's accomplishments.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Outcomes
The number of graduates employed may differ from the number of program graduates due to the JRCERT definition of "not actively seeking employment."
The JRCERT has defined “not actively seeking employment” as:
- Graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts OR
- Graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation, OR
- Graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours, OR
- Graduate is on active military duty, OR
- Graduate is continuing education.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging Program Accreditation
The Joint Review Committee on Education Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) monitors performance measures of programs and makes this information available to the public. Successful completion of a JRCERT-accredited program assures you that you will be provided with the knowledge, skills, and professional values required for career success.
The Advanced Medical Imaging Technology MRI program is currently accredited by the JRCERT. The most recent program accreditation renewal was in March 2020, the program was awarded a 5 year accreditation award and is due for review again in March 2025.
Nuclear Medicine Technology Outcomes
Graduate achievement data is an indicator of program effectiveness, demonstrating the extent to which a program achieves its goals. The current report on graduate achievement data, identified by program, is available on the JRCNMT website by clicking on the following link: Graduate Achievement Report
The above graduation outcomes represents the nuclear medicine technology curriculum. However, it does not reflect that nearly all of the nuclear medicine technology students begin the magnetic resonance imaging curriculum upon completion of their nuclear medicine studies and consequently, do NOT enter the workforce. These students are usually not seeking employment at this stage due to the time commitments of the magnetic resonance imaging curriculum.
Nuclear Medicine Technology Program Accreditation
The Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT) evaluates programs using nationally-recognized standards, ensuring quality educational programs.
The Advanced Medical Imaging Technology Nuclear Medicine Technology program is currently accredited by the JRCNMT. The most recent program accreditation renewal was in 2019, the program was awarded a 7 year accreditation award and is due for review again in 2026.
MRI Screening Form
MRI Technologists work around powerful, high-field magnets, and thus in order to work in this environment, MRI Technologists and potential AMIT/MRI students cannot have certain implants or medical devices, such as pacemakers, brain aneurysm clips, and cardiac defibrillators. Many other metallic implants are OK for working in an MR environment, however, such as hip/knee replacements, braces, dental fillings, and orthopedic screws.
Prior to applying to the AMIT program, it is advised that you look over and complete the screening form/questionnaire. If you have any questions about certain implants you have, please contact the AMIT program.
