Curriculum Highlights Our curriculum is designed to help you gain the skills and confidence needed to successfully enter your chosen profession.

T H E O R E T I C A L E D U C AT I O N Rigorous didactic curriculum provides a foundation of understanding for these science-based professions.

I N T E R P R O F E S S I O N A L E D U C AT I O N Students will have the opportunity to practice communication, critical thinking, crisis management and collaboration with student-peers from other health care disciplines. This will prepare you to enter the health care workforce as part of a team that collaborates in the best interests of patient care.

S I M U L AT I O N E N H A N C E D E D U C AT I O N The opportunity to practice in a simulated clinical environment prepares you for what you may encounter in a clinical situation. Michener’s simulated environment is safe and controlled, allowing you to gain confidence and comfort with the application of your knowledge and skills. At the same time, faculty can observe your behaviours and skills and provide constructive feedback.

Curriculum Highlights

In view of demographic trends, the Working with Seniors curriculum will provide you with the skills, knowledge and experience to enter your clinical placements (and future practice) with the competency and confidence to work effectively with older adults. The simulation component of this curriculum will include direct exposure to older patients as well as a first-hand experience of changes that can occur with frailty.

10

Incorporating Open School Quality Improvement curriculum from The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) and the University of Toronto, will provide students with the fundamental knowledge of quality improvement, safety,

system design and leadership that they can apply as a core competency in their clinical roles.

C L I N I C A L E D U C AT I O N During the course of the program, you will complete at least 38 weeks of clinical rotations at sites across Ontario and in some instances, in other provinces. Clinical education offers you the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained in the classroom to a real-world setting. Not only will your clinical training get you the hands-on experience you need to succeed, it also helps you network and build relationships with potential employers.

SMALL CLASS SIZES Small class sizes means more hands-on, interactive learning which, in turn, gives you the opportunity for daily interaction with faculty.

ASSESSMENT Being a great health professional means more than being great at absorbing and recalling information. Your performance will be assessed in multiple ways, providing you with feedback on both your discipline-specific knowledge as well as your ability to apply your interprofessional training in a clinical setting.

D E D I C AT E D FA C U LT Y Our distinguished faculty are licensed health care professionals and educators in their respective fields. They are committed to your success.

Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technology is functional imaging used to safely detect disease in its early stages. Special cameras, computers and radioactive tracers are used to image how disease or treatments alter organ system function. Nuclear Medicine imaging involves non-invasive procedures, to determine everything from the size and location of tumours, to the volume of blood ejected from the heart with each beat. Molecular Imaging utilizes specialized instrumentation alone, or in combination with targeted imaging agents, to visualize biochemical events at the cellular and molecular level, in order to help identify regions of pathology and potential mechanisms of disease. W H AT C A N I E X P E C T F R O M T H E P R O F E S S I O N ? This is a profession that involves extensive interaction with patients and their families, and other medical professionals. Nuclear Medicine Technologists work in hospitals, as well as in private imaging clinics, and generally work regular eight-hour shifts. To succeed in this field, technologists must have excellent communication skills to deliver optimal patient care. They must be able to work independently, as they will often have little direct supervision, and also be adept at working within a variety of sophisticated computer applications.

Radiological Technologists are responsible for producing diagnostic images using radiation for the diagnosis of injuries and diseases. Technologists operate a variety of medical imaging equipment in areas such as general radiography, computed tomography, fluoroscopy and bone mineral densitometry. In doing so, they need to provide optimal care for the patient, utilize minimal radiation and employ appropriate radiation protection measures. W H AT C A N I E X P E C T F R O M T H E P R O F E S S I O N ? The primary focus of the Radiological Technologist is to provide optimal care for the patient in a fast-paced environment. The Technologist must be able to quickly assess the patient’s needs and capabilities to effectively and efficiently position the patient and work through required procedures. In addition to working in Imaging Departments, Technologists working in hospitals may be required to provide imaging services in the Operating Rooms, the Emergency Department, at the patient’s bedside or other areas of the hospital. Being able to work with a variety of computer applications is also necessary because medical imaging is heavily dependent on technology. In addition to clinical practice, opportunities for graduate Radiological Technologists include education, management and medical equipment sales. Technologists can go on to specialize in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), sonography, mammography and imaging informatics.

Cardiovascular Perfusion Cardiovascular perfusionists are important members of the cardiac surgical team whose primary role is to maintain patient’s respiration, circulation and physiological state, commonly using extracorporeal circuits like the heart-lung machine during surgeries. The cardiovascular perfusionist monitors vital signs while administering intravenous fluids, blood products and anesthetic drugs. Perfusionists also utilize other pieces of technology like ventricular assist devices and intraaortic balloon pumps to maintain cardiac output as required.

Using the heart-lung machine (HLM), cardiovascular perfusionists work alongside cardiac surgeons and anesthesiologists and the multidisciplinary Operating Room (OR) team. Working in the Cardiac Operating Room environment is demanding and requires sustained mental and physical attentiveness during open heart surgery. You are expected to perform in the OR for up to 10 or 12 hours at a time. You may also be expected to work on-call or overtime.

Michener is the only Englishspeaking Chiropody program in Canada. We have a working clinic on campus where students interact and treat clients under the supervision of licensed chiropodists.

"Through the chiropody program, I became aware of the number of people in the community suffering from foot and lower limb conditions. It's very rewarding to know that chiropodists can provide pain relief to patients with just one visit. My educational experience at Michener was enhanced by the clinical internships in my last year, as well as the different faculty in the program. I learned a lot in the externships, as I picked up on certain skills and techniques, and was able to see how different clinics operate."

"After completing a 5-year degree, I was not ready to dive into another 4-year program. Michener’s program is accelerated, only taking 20 months to fast track me into a rewarding career. What I love about Ultrasound is that there is a level of artistry to the science. In order to get the best diagnostic image you have to adjust the focus, change the angle and zoom to capture images of internal organs. Ultrasound is a profession that is ever changing, both on a case-bycase basis and the technological front. It also is a universal language in imaging; this job will provide many opportunities in Canada and around the world."
