Lake Michigan College joins Kellogg Community College, Lansing Community College, Mid Michigan Community College, Grand Rapids Community College, and Grand Valley State University in the establishment of the Michigan Radiologic and Imaging Science (MiRIS) Consortium to offer an associate degree and a certificate track in MRI.
Each of the MiRIS colleges enrolls students in the program under their individual admission criteria and each awards the degree or certificate according to the college completion requirements. Students complete the MRI didactic courses offered online by one of the MiRIS colleges through the Michigan Community College Virtual Learning Collaborative (MCCVLC). Clinical education courses are arranged through the MiRIS Consortium's Educational Coordinator in the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) department of affiliating hospitals, clinics, or other MRI provider facilities.
Upon successful completion of all program requirements, Lake Michigan College non-imaging professionals will be awarded an associate degree of applied science in MRI and will be eligible to take the MRI certification exam administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). Board certified medical imaging professionals may qualify for the certificate track in MRI and sit for the ARRT MRI boards. ARRT credentials are nationally recognized.
