Graduate Program in Magnetic Resonance to Begin

Cedars-Sinai's graduate program at the Department of Biomedical Sciences will begin offering a master of science in magnetic resonance in medicine next fall. The program has tripled its master's degree offerings since creating the first one in biomedical science and translational medicine in 2015.

Led by program director Debiao Li, PhD, director of the Biomedical Imaging Research Institute, and associate program director Wafa Tawackoli, PhD, the newly accredited master's program will focus on how magnetic resonance imaging is applied to biomedical research and medicine. While many organizations offer purely technical training or doctoral programs in imaging, a master's program specific to MRI in medicine currently does not exist.

The two-year curriculum features classes, an individualized research project and a hands-on internship led by leading scientists and physicians. Students will master fundamentals of MRI in medicine, such as technical development, research methods and clinical applications.

Graduates will be prepared to serve as supporting scientists in clinical settings, research associates in imaging research centers, or research or applications scientists in industry. The program may also provide continuing education and training for imaging professionals.

The program is now accepting applications for fall 2017, and scholarships are available for select students. For more information, visit the program website or contact the associate program director at wafa.tawackoli@csmc.edu.
