Michener, NMICERC partner to deliver MRI program at SK satellite campus


The Michener Institute of Education at UHN and the National Medical Imaging Clinic, Education & Research Centre (NMICERC) are partnering to bring MRI training to Saskatchewan and Western Canada. Saskatchewan does not currently have an MRI training program, Michener explains, and so the partnership was developed to bring Michener’s MRI Technologist training program to students in Saskatchewan. The program will be delivered remotely by Michener faculty and NMICERC will host the hands-on clinical training in Saskatoon. Looking to the future, NMICERC President Dragan Racic expressed hope that Michener’s continuing education and professional development courses would be offered in the future. This partnership will also include initiatives such as a bridge program for Indigenous youth in Saskatchewan and Western Canada interested in entering the MRI technologist program.
