Description:This three-year Ontario College Advanced Diploma program, accredited by the Accreditation Canada EQalTM, prepares graduates with the knowledge and technical skills required to produce diagnostic images and carry out diagnostic procedures in the role of a medical radiation technologist as outlined by the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists Radiological Technology competency profile. Working independently and in collaboration with healthcare team members, Medical Radiation Technologists analyze a variety of complex diagnostic images to assist physicians in the diagnosis and management of multiple system disorders. Through theoretical courses, simulation, laboratory practice and extensive clinical experiences students acquire the ability to produce quality images of internal structures of the human body. Students apply health, safety and quality assurance principles while performing venipunctures, while interacting with patients and while using ionizing radiation in the laboratory and clinical settings. Critical-thinking and problem-solving skills are developed to adapt theoretical knowledge to clinical practice. Students work within an interprofessional healthcare team to provide safe patient assessment, and use diagnostic and therapeutic skills consistent with best practice standards for medical radiation technology.
