Learning 3D printing technology that can help improve patient outcomes.

Degree Overview

The Medical 3D Printing Specialist certificate option prepares imaging professionals to be knowledgeable and proficient in the 3D printing process. Advanced 3D printing technology allows health care professionals to generate full anatomical models from computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), angiography and ultrasound images. These models can be used to help reduce surgical time, improve surgical preparation, decrease fluoroscopy time, lower cost to patients, and increase education and interprofessional collaboration, which ultimately leads to positive patient outcomes.

The Medical 3D Printing Specialist Certificate curriculum introduces students to the fundamentals of creating a 3D medical print and provides them the opportunity to apply various advanced theories and concepts in creating 3D medical prints. Professionals who are interested in the Medical 3D Printing Specialist certificate must be registered technologists who have a minimum of six months experience in an advanced modality, such as CT, MRI, CI, VI or DMS, or completed an externship in one of these modalities or be a health science professional in an applicable field.
