Magnetic Resonance Imaging is a rapidly growing field of Allied Health. Chattanooga State's newly redeveloped MRI program coursework is offered online to meet the needs of the adult working Imaging Technologist. Our MRI students are hosted by clinic sites throughout the region.

The curriculum follows the ARRT content specifications and is designed to prepare you for the MRI registry. Completion of both didactic courses will satisfy the structured education requirement for 16 hours of MRI relevant education to be eligible for the post-primary exam offered by the ARRT.

Completion of the MRIT 2300 clinic course will make it possible for you to obtain the 125 exams required by the ARRT.

The MRI certificate will only be awarded to students who complete requirements for all three courses. These courses have been pre-approved by the ARRT and offer the additional benefit of 64 continuing education credits.

All courses in the MRI program are VA Certified and eligible for FAFSA. Tuition and fee costs can be viewed here.
