About the Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology

To start the Bachelor of Science in Medical Imaging Technology (BSMIT), students must have certification in radiography (ARRT), nuclear medicine (ARRT or NMTCB), sonography (ARRT or ARDMS), or radiation therapy (ARRT). To graduate with the BSMIT, a total of 120-credit hours must be completed. Students gain knowledge and skills in the following core areas: Medical Imaging Technology Principles and Procedures, Cross-Sectional Anatomy, Sectional-Imaging Pathology, and a Capstone Course.

The BSMIT program consists of all online classes, with the exception of some ultrasound courses, clinical practicums, or internships. A clinical practicum has 24-34 hours of clinical experience each week and can be completed in two semesters (Fall and Spring) for all modalities except ultrasound. Ultrasound continues through the summer session for a total of four semesters. The BSMIT program is flexible in scheduling clinical practicums and allows students to take online courses.

If a student already has a post-primary certification in another modality, the student is able to receive special credit in place of the clinical practicum (12 credit hours). Internships are currently being developed and are evaluated between the program director and the student.

Academic Advising

College policy on advising requires that students meet with their academic advisors at least once each year, and in some departments, prior to each semester’s to enrollment. Advising holds are placed on all Vera Z. Dwyer College of Health Science medical imaging students prior to advance registration and are released following advising appointments. Students with a declared major are advised in their academic units. To determine who your advisor is and how to contact them, see One.IU.

General Education Curriculum

Courses from accredited schools can be transferred and applied to the BSMIT. Submission of an official credit transfer report (CTR) is required for all work transferred from another accredited school. To obtain an official CTR, the student must request an official transcript from all institutions, except IU systemwide campuses and be forwarded to the IU South Bend Office of Admissions for evaluation. Each student record is individually evaluated for applicability of courses towards the general-education requirements. Students must also submit official transcripts to the IU South Bend Radiography/Medical Imaging Department to fulfill BSMIT Clinical Program application requirements.

Students who received an associate degree from an accredited program will be considered transfer students for the purpose of fulfilling the campuswide general education requirements at IU South Bend. All courses certified as meeting the campuswide general-education requirements are designated in the Schedule of Classes.
