Gurnick Academy Opens Campus in Sacramento, Recognizing Healthcare Growth

SACRAMENTO— Gurnick Academy of Medical Arts, a well known allied health school, is opening a campus focused on diagnostic imaging technology and Medical Assisting in Sacramento.  Associate in Science degrees will be offered in MRI Technology, Radiologic Technology, and Ultrasound Technology.  Gurnick Academy is also partnering with Sutter Health to enhance the overall approach to Medical Assisting training, creating graduates that will be better prepared for the Sutter Health environment.  All courses are enrolling now and will start in July. Financial aid is available for those that qualify.

The new campus will be technologically advanced both from a healthcare diagnostics standpoint but also from an educational delivery perspective. Gurnick's partnership with Samsung / Neurologica will establish the technology foundation with the state of the art X- Ray Lab and Ultrasound Lab which are both supported by Samsung diagnostic equipment.  In addition, Gurnick's employment partners will have a direct pipeline to the students and graduates through the "Gurnick Edge" portal to search and promote jobs through interactive job boards and the development of an active alumni network at the campus. The curriculum (supported by Elsevier Education content) will also be delivered digitally through Samsung tablets and notebooks in the classroom, online library, and labs.

The AS in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (ASMRI) Program is designed to prepare the student to perform clinical MRI examinations of the human body with special consideration to image production, quality control, signal to noise ratio, and basic pulse sequences.

The AS in Radiologic Technology Program (ASRT) includes didactic and laboratory training as well as a clinical internship that correlates with the theoretical knowledge. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be prepared to sit for the ARRT exam. Once students pass this exam, they will be able to work as Radiologic Technologists.

The AS in Ultrasound Technology Program (ASUT) prepares our students for entry-level employment after their graduation as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer with specialization in general sonography (Abdominal and Small Parts, Obstetrics and Gynecology and Vascular Sonography). Graduates will be qualified to work in hospitals, imaging centers, physicians’ offices, or clinics.

The Medical Assistant Program (MA) prepares students for work in hospital settings, a physician or other health practitioner's office, and is considered an indispensable workforce.  A Medical Assistant performs a variety of administrative and clinical tasks.
