The education I received at Cabarrus College of Health Sciences added value to both my personal and professional life. The assertive instruction by qualified staff and the independence given to me within my studies allowed me to be a competent medical imaging technologist. I really enjoyed the combination of both face-to-face and online courses. More so, I was able to find a job as a full time MRI technologist immediately upon graduation. I owe it all to Cabarrus of Health Sciences and would recommend it to anyone looking to expand their medical imaging education.” - Jenna Forsythe, BSRT (R)(MR) Class of 2010
