AAVR Launches First Online CE Veterinary MRI Course

    Course designed for both veterinarians and technicians

    SAN DIEGO, California—The American Association of Veterinary Radiologists (AAVR) has announced the launch of the nation’s first online CE Veterinary MRI course, “Veterinary MRI.” The course was created by John Posh, RT, (R)(MR), director of the MRI Internship Program at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. The course is designed for both veterinarians and licensed veterinary technicians.

    For veterinary practices located throughout the world, it can be difficult for veterinary professionals to attend academic classes and obtain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide excellent specialized care to patients. Now veterinarians and technicians everywhere can be empowered to learn and use MRI technology—the most advanced diagnostic imaging tool available. By completing this online course, veterinarians and licensed technicians can fully realize the potential of MRI in diagnosing and treating patients.

    Posh has more than 20 years of experience in MRI operations, education, research, and management and has designed this course to meet the highest educational standards. Tuition is $1,500, and participants may enroll at any time and work at their own pace. “Veterinary MRI” consists of 13 video lessons, short exams, and a technical portion. Students must complete and pass all 13 exams and fulfill the technical portion requirement to receive 14.5 CE credits approved by the Registry of Approved Continuing Education (RACE). Upon completion of the course, the veterinary professional receives a certificate of completion and is registered with the AAVR as a Veterinary Magnetic Resonance Imager (VMRI).

    The mission of the AAVR is to promote veterinary radiology education and responsible practices in diagnostic imaging for general practice veterinarians and veterinary technicians through online programs, educational courses, and practice guidelines.

    For more information and to enroll in the course, contact AAVR at www.aavr.org.
