Boréal’s Medical Imaging Technology – Radiology program renews its accreditation status for the next 6 years

 Tuesday, August 30, 2016 – Sudbury – Collège Boréal

Collège Boréal is proud to announce the 6-year accreditation status of its Medical Imaging Technology – Radiology program by the Canadian Medical Association (CMA).

Health programs receive CMA accreditation only when they meet national standards. This ensures that students acquire the necessary knowledge, skills, and attitudes to function as competent health practitioners.

There are several components to the lengthy accreditation process, including the application, a program self-assessment report, the document review, and an on-site program visit. The CMA accords 6-year accreditation status to programs that comply with all five requirements.

Boréal’s Medical Imaging Technology – Radiology program is offered at the college’s Sudbury campus over six semesters (3 years) and is recognized by the Canadian Forces. Boréal is the only college in Ontario to offer this program in French. To become registered to practice in Canada, graduates must pass the Canadian Association of Medical Radiation Technologists (CAMRT) certification examination.
