Purpose of Training

The purpose of an MTRA training is to acquire profound expert knowledge and practical skills required in this profession. Our practice-oriented training program enables future medical-technical radiology assistants to cope with daily tasks and procedures in clinics, hospitals and practices, independently and responsibly.

Therefore, we have designed a comprehensive training program, combining theoretical lessons, practical classes in excellently equipped practice rooms and internships in state-of-the-art health institutions . Theory lessons are held on campus in Regenstauf, whereas practical classes and internships take place on the premises of the University Hospital Regensburg and the Hospital Barmherzige Brüder Regensburg.
(Financial support and later employment by cooperation partners is possible.)

The course of training is regulated by the MTA Act; learning contents are specified by the curriculum of the Bavarian Ministry of Education and Cultural Affairs.  
MTRAs typically operate state-of-the-art medical technology, such as X-ray, MRI or CT to produce diagnostic images of body structures.
Their fields of work range from radiology, to nuclear medicine and radiation physics, to radiation therapy. Naturally, their job does not only require profound technical and scientific expertise, but also a great deal of responsibility and empathy as well as proficient communication skills since MTRAs are a patient’s main person of contact.
Currently, there’s a high demand for MTRAs, especially in hospitals, clinics and practices, so that their employment and career prospects are rated as above average.
