Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Medical Imaging Technology

Post-Baccalaureate Certificate -Medical Imaging Technology:  

Students who have previously earned a Baccalaureate degree in MIT or Radiologic Sciences may be eligible to earn a second BS degree in a specific concentration, which allows them to be eligible for certification in any of our modality specific concentrations. 

Medical Imaging Technologists are employed in a variety of settings.  Graduates can be found in hospitals, imaging centers, clinics, physician offices, federal and state agencies, medical supply and equipment businesses, educational institutions, and veterinary services. Due to the rise in baccalaureate radiologic science degrees, the BS degree in Medical Imaging Technology (MIT) may not meet the needs of all individuals looking for further career development and opportunity.  Local hospitals and other healthcare facilities face a shortage of qualified technologists.  Indeed, many of these facilities frequently seek qualified individuals to fill positions in advanced imaging modalities.  This certificate program would help alleviate this problem by educating workers locally, and in communities continually seeking candidates.  Moreover, a post-baccalaureate certificate will allow technologists, who already have a bachelor’s degree, an avenue to become board-eligible, highly qualified advanced modality technologists.  Finally, a post-baccalaureate certificate will allow those international students who have a reciprocally recognized bachelor’s degree in imaging the opportunity to expand their education beyond that level through recognizing their earned bachelor’s degree, which is currently an obstacle within the educational system.

Courses in the certificate program, aside from clinical rotations, will be offered at Indiana University Kokomo. The certificate core courses would meet simultaneously with the BS MIT courses, as the subject matter would be identical.

Information concerning concentrations can be found by visiting the IU Kokomo MIT web page or contact our Medical Imaging Technology Coordinator (davisp@iuk.edu); 765-455-9490. Program details and application process may be found on our MIT website: http://iuk.edu/allied-health-sciences/degrees/majors/medical-imaging-technology/index.php

What are the admission requirements?

Students must have completed a baccalaureate degree at an accredited institution (minimum GPA of 2.70 in all courses and in the mathematics and science courses).  The degree should include courses in the sciences and some mathematics to meet at least some of the pre-requisites. 

Advising

For academic advising on any of the Allied Health Sciences, Health Science or Applied Science related programs, see Allied Health Science Advisors located in KE 120 or call 765-455-9384

The Admissions Committee will select the number of students each year based on clinical site availability, provided such students meet the admissions criteria.  Applications will be due on November 15 for priority consideration but will be accepted until all available clinical spots are filled.  For students who are missing pre-requisite courses, these courses can all be completed at IU Kokomo in one year (two regular semesters). Admission will be determined on a first come, first served basis after candidates applying for the BS in Medical Imaging Technology program are clinically placed.
