CO-OP/Practicum Information

The MRI and Spectroscopy program includes 18 weeks of clinical education/practicum.

Red River College Polytechnic will help you obtain a clinical placement(s) for the completion of the MRI/S clinical education/practicum. You will have the opportunity to indicate your preferred clinical placement sites, and efforts will be made to consider these. However, the availability of clinical spots and the number of students in the class will determine assignment of clinical placements and you may not receive your preferred site(s).  Your clinical placement(s) will be assigned at the discretion of the program.

Due to the limited number of clinical placement sites it may be necessary for students to relocate either within Manitoba or to another province.  Requests for out-of-province clinical placement sites may be possible, however they cannot be guaranteed. 

Additionally, rotations to other clinical placement sites may be required to achieve all practical competencies. For example, Health Sciences Centre students need to go to St. Boniface General Hospital to see cardiac MR scans.

You are responsible for all additional expenses related to the clinical education/practicum, including relocation costs (travel, meals, accommodation) to clinical placement site(s).

The College reserves the right to make changes to clinical placements of students when deemed necessary.

The following hospitals currently participate as clinical placement sites:
Winnipeg hospitals:

  • Health Sciences Centre, Winnipeg
  • St. Boniface General Hospital
  • Grace General Hospital

Hospitals outside of Winnipeg:

  • Brandon Regional Health Centre, Brandon
  • Boundary Trails Health Centre, Morden/Winkler
  • Selkirk and District General Hospital
