Owens received formal approval by the Ohio Board of Regents to offer a Magnetic Resonance Associate Degree Program. This is the first degree of its kind in the state of Ohio. Classes began in Summer Semester 2013 on the Toledo-area Campus.
Owens' associate degree in Magnetic Resonance requires approximately 73 credit hours of coursework, which includes magnetic resonance imaging patient care and safety, medical ethics, medical informatics, medical resonance instrumentation, pharmacology for medical resonance technologists and medical sociology, among other academic curriculum. The new associate degree is designed to prepare students for employment in health-specific settings such as hospitals, clinics and private offices.
