What Magnetic Resonance Imaging Offers

The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) program in UMMC's School of Health Related Professions develops clinically competent MRI technologists through comprehensive classroom and clinical education, providing the necessary skills for career advancement and professional growth.

The future introduction of higher magnetic field strengths into clinical imaging departments, coupled with advanced imaging techniques such as functional MRI (fMRI) and spectroscopy, provide more detailed imaging.

Also, the integration of MRI with Positron Emission Tomography (PET/MRI) is paving the way for the future in molecular level imaging, advancing disease management and improving care for all patients. Molecular imaging is being hailed as the next great advance in imaging. These developments provide technologists with a variety of skill enrichment opportunities and career advancements for the future.

With all the imaging advancements on the horizons, technologists must be ready by advancing their education through programs such as SHRP's MRI program and its degree offering.

Mission Statement 

The mission statement of the Magnetic Resonance Imaging program in the School of Health Related Professions at the University of Mississippi Medical Center is to develop clinically competent Magnetic Resonance Imaging technologists through comprehensive didactic and clinical education, providing the necessary skills for career advancement and professional growth.

What to expect

The MRI faculty set high standards for students and continually monitors student progress and success, as well as program effectiveness. Cohorts are small by design, allowing for intensive and specialized instruction.

Program effectiveness data (PED) can also be viewed on the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) website.
