Full program description

Program Description:
This online, stand-alone, Clinical Engineer (CSE) certificate will take 9 – 12 months to complete. The program will provide a mix of formal technical training and customer-focused training, that incorporates medical imaging technology expertise, healthcare business acumen, customer relationship management, and specific imaging equipment training.

 
Included Courses:
Engineering in Medical Imaging 1: Non-Ionizing Techniques
This is the first course in a 2-semester investigation into the engineering of medical imaging modalities. These courses will provide the student with a functional understanding of some of the most common applications of engineering in medical imaging. This will include discussions of the underlying physics, device operation, image formation, and clinical applications of medical images.
 
Engineering in Medical Imaging 2: Ionizing Techniques
This is the second course in a 2-semester investigation into the engineering of medical imaging modalities. These courses will provide the student with a functional understanding of some of the most common applications of engineering in medical imaging. This course will include discussions of the underlying physics, device operation, image formation, and clinical applications of medical images. 
 
Medical Image Data Collection & Management
This course builds upon the foundations of Engineering in Medical Imaging in the Clinical Service Engineering certificate, to walk through the operation and implementation of medical imaging systems in a clinical environment, particularly focusing on configuring equipment, designing operational workflows, programming and networking systems, managing data through complex interfaces, and analyzing images. 
 
Applications for Clinical Engineering
This course is a capstone course for the certificate program as a whole; it builds upon the concepts and skills learned in earlier courses in the Clinical Service Engineering certificate program. This class focuses heavily on applying what was learned in the prior courses within a healthcare environment, including virtual labs and field assignments. 

 
Program Prerequisites:
Calculus I, calculus-based Physics I, and algebra or calculus-based Physics II (or equivalents).
