  • Location
  • Length

    The maximum time to complete the program is seven years.

    It is recommended that students complete the theory courses for the program within two years (six terms) and that students enroll in the 16 week clinical experience within two terms of completing their last theory course.

    Approach to completing the program

    Students have some flexibility in how they approach the required program studies. The following is recommended:

    1. MIMG 7200 is the first course as it is a prerequisite for all other theory courses in the program.
    2. The remaining theory courses (MIMG 7202, 7210, 7220, 7230 and 7240) be completed within five terms (eighteen months) before the start of the 16 week practicum.
    3. MIMG 7240 be taken as the last course and completed just prior to beginning the clinical practicum.

    A recommended approach for completing the program is as follows:

      Term 1 - MIMG 7200
      Term 2 - MIMG 7202 and/or MIMG 7210
      Term 3 - MIMG 7210 and/or MIMG 7220 and/or MIMG 7230
      Term 4 - MIMG 7220 and/or MIMG 7210 and/or MIMG 7230
      Term 5 - MIMG 7230 and/or MIMG 7240
      Term 6- MIMG 7240
      Term 7 or 8 - MIMG 8200 MRI Clinical Practicum*.

    *Students will be required to do a full-time (equivalent to typical working hours) 16 week (4 month) MRI clinical experience at an approved clinical site to meet the clinical requirements of the program. The clinical experience is typically scheduled Mon - Fri during daytime hours. MIMG 8200 is available in the January, April, and September terms.

    Any other approach should be discussed with the program head to ensure that it will meet your learning goals and BCIT's requirements.

    CAMRT preparation guide and practice exams

    Online practice exams are available for students in the program. These exams are for review only and do not count towards program marks. Students can take these practice exams while doing their clinical experience.
