The Albert Einstein Healthcare Network’s School of Radiologic Technology at Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia campus or otherwise known as “the Program” has been in existence since 1946, graduating its first Radiography class in 1948. AEMC’s School of Radiologic Technology’s Radiography program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Graduates are eligible to apply for admission to the certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Effective January 1, 2016, eligibility requirements for ARRT certification in Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging will call for candidates to complete 16 hours of required structured education related to the content outlines for that exam.
Students in the Program will gain a wealth of knowledge in the Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia (“EMCP”), Department of Radiology and in the various satellite facilities. A wealth of training materials are available from the over 264,000 diagnostic examinations performed annually. Aside from the many routine diagnostic rooms, specialized facilities are available in angiography, fluoroscopy, neuroradiography and ultrasound, as well as head and whole-body spiral computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and PACS. The Department is fully digital in producing patient examinations. An entire section of the Department is devoted to the performance of mammography procedures. Students also gain valuable outpatient clinical experience at some of AEMC’s satellite facilities in the Philadelphia area.
Upon successful completion of all the Program’s academic and clinical requirements, a student will be awarded a Certificate in Magnetic Resonance Imaging or Computed Tomography from AEMC.
The Einstein Healthcare Network’s School of Radiologic Technology considers all candidates for admission without regard to age, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion, sex, or disability.
MRI INTERNSHIP OVERVIEW
The Magnetic Resonance Internship Program is an eight (8) month, hospital-based, certificate program offering comprehensive didactic & clinical education in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI). Successful completion qualifies graduates as educationally eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) advanced modality certification exam in MRI pending ARRT review and approval. Applicants must be graduates or pending graduates from a JRCERT accredited program in Radiography and must successfully pass the ARRT primary certification exam in Radiography. The Program enrolls up to 5 students, seeking didactic and clinical preparation, each academic year and starts on or near July 1st of each year. The program can enroll up to 10 additional students each cohort seeking the didactic only component of the program.
