Board approves advanced medical imaging program at MTI

The South Dakota Board of Education has approved a new degree program at Mitchell Technical Institute and a program expansion at Southeast Technical Institute.

At its meeting Monday, the board approved an associate of applied science degree in advanced medical imaging at Mitchell Technical Institute. This degree program will provide students who already hold a primary pathway registration with the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists the opportunity to obtain specialized skills in magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography. Graduates of this program would fill a growing need in the state's health care industry. Certificate options will also be available for employed technologists who want to pursue advanced skills in MRI or CT.

In addition, the surgical technology program at Southeast Technical Institute has been expanded from a one-year diploma program to a two-year associate of applied science degree program. This expansion meets coming accreditation requirements for surgical technology degree programs.
