Show Requirements For:

Bachelor of Medical Radiation Sciences

The MRSc program promotes skills in its graduates to prepare them for lifelong, self-directed learning, critical thinking, and to become an integral part of the health care team.

Students are introduced to the specializations in Level I. At the end of Level I, students apply to one of the following specializations; however, admission to first choice of specialization is not guaranteed due to the limited enrollment nature of the programs.

Radiography

Includes discipline specific courses in radiation physics and safety, radiation biology, human anatomy and pathology, radiographic equipment, radiographic imaging procedures, film analysis and film interpretation, and introduction to computed tomography (CT scanning), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Ultrasonography

Includes discipline specific courses in ultrasound physics and instrumentation, human anatomy and pathology, abdominal, obstetrical and pelvic, musculoskeletal and vascular procedures, patient care and safety, and neuro-sonography, fetal echocardiography or breast sonography.

Level II

The academic semesters enable the application of fundamental theoretical principles to the technologies of medical radiation science.

Level III

A broad range of discipline-related and general subjects areas are explored in depth. The principles of medical ethics and research methodologies are used to analyze and evaluate technological advances and professional practices in medical radiation science.

Level IV

Clinical practicum provides opportunities to integrate theoretical knowledge, technical, and professional skills. This encourages the development of increasing competence and independence, leading to the:

  • Achievement of the professional competence required of an entry-level practitioner
  • Ability to plan and manage future professional development and lifelong learning

For additional information please refer to McMaster’s Undergraduate Calendar.

Clinical Education

The practical experience gained in medical imaging labs prepare students for their clinical placements. Over the length of the four-year program, students continue to develop skills for clinical practice through three terms of experiential learning in various clinical environments. Clinical practice may be completed at a minimum of two clinical agencies that may be located throughout Ontario (e.g. Ottawa, Owen Sound). The Program will determine allocation of students to these clinical facilities.

The clinical placements provide a breadth of experience in procedures and modalities and reflect the range of opportunities for employment. Initially, students are observing and performing tasks under the direct supervision of clinical staff and later progress to working independently, with minimal supervision and support, to produce accurate and timely studies. Students’ performance is assessed throughout their clinical practice.
