Student Spotlight

Jon Peterson (MRI Program 1803)

Jon Peterson is our July-August Student Spotlight. Jon enrolled March 2018 in the MRI Program and has currently started his first externship at Children’s Hospital, Los Angeles. Jon has learned how small the imaging community really is and tells students to consider this as a two year interview!

Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up? What are your interests?

I first grew up in Reno N.V. until I was three years old and then moved on to California where I have spent most of my life.

What is a cause you are passionate about?

My main interest right now are my kids and their activities and school. A big cause that I would say I am passionate about is patient care, it will be the most important cause once you start your career in the medical field.

How did your path unfold and who were the faculty and staff who have helped you along that path?

I have been working in the medical field for about fourteen years now. I have had many co-workers help guide me to the field of MRI.

What have you learned or are learning that’s made a difference to you?

I will say the best thing I have learned in this school and from other classmates is how to study properly and effectively.

What has been your greatest challenge?

Having time to study has been one of my greatest challenges with the fact that I have two kids and it can be hard to study at home.

What has been your favorite class so far and why?

My favorite class so far will have to be my clinicals.

What is your plan for after graduation? What type of facility would you like to work in and why?

My plan after I graduate is to take both my boards, ARMRIT and ARRT, and hopefully land a good job.

What advice do you have for incoming students?

For the students coming in I will say this: The field is small, everyone knows everyone. This will be a two year interview!
