Play a critical a role in diagnosis and treatment of illness and injury.

You will develop technical imaging expertise through a combination of classroom instruction and lab work in Fanshawe's new digital, state of the art MRT lab.
You will also gain invaluable hands-on experience by completing a 52-week clinical placement at one or more of our affiliated clinical hospitals commencing in your second year.
As a graduate of the MRT program you will be eligible to write the national certification exam of the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists and go on to work as a Radiological Technologist in the Diagnostic Imaging Department of a hospital or medical clinical clinic.
Medical Radiation Technology is a three year Ontario College Advanced Diploma Program.
