Bachelor of Science in Medical Radiation Sciences
The University of Toronto Department of Radiation Oncology and The Michener Institute of Education at UHN are proud to offer a joint Bachelor of Science Degree and Advanced Diploma in Medical Radiation Sciences. Our program is the first professional undergraduate program of its kind in Medical Radiation Sciences.
Medical Radiation Sciences (MRS) is an exciting health care field using radiant energy for the diagnoses and treatment of injuries and illnesses. Practitioners in Medical Radiation Sciences work one-on-one with patients and collaborate within an interprofessional team of health care providers in a variety of roles. Students have the opportunity to choose one of three disciplines as the focus of their studies:
- Radiation Therapy uses ionizing radiation to destroy cancerous tissue while monitoring patients.
- Radiological Technology uses external x-rays to image body structures.
- Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging Technology administers radiopharmaceuticals to assess organ function and cellular disease.
MRS offers a dynamic, intensive 32-month curriculum carefully crafted to equip students with the education and experience to succeed in their careers. The program is designed for students with prior university experience who meet prerequisite requirements.
