Boise State University offers clinically based, credentialed practitioners an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree, with an emphasis in MRI. Candidates must possess a minimum of an AS or AAS degree from a regionally accredited institution, meet specific pre-requisite course requirements, and possess a professional credential in a clinically based profession such as Radiography, Respiratory Care, Nursing or acceptable equivalent as determined by the Program Director. Students must complete the appropriate Boise State foundational studies requirements, the class requirements of the major and meet all Boise State policies to be granted a BS degree.
The MRI emphasis is designed to be a BS degree completion program or allow an individual to obtain a second Bachelors degree. The MRI course sequence proper is two semesters in length, consisting of integrated clinical and classroom education. Students are also required to meet additional required non-MRI courses, as well as the general education at Boise State University (foundations program). The goals of the MRI Emphasis are:
- To provide in-depth education and clinical experience necessary to prepare the student for the advanced level MRI registry examination to practice as a competent MRI specialist.
- To produce technologists who communicate appropriately, correlate patient history with protocol selection, review critical research, and critically assess situations as demanded by the profession.
