Wendy McDonald - Education Development Specialist  
Wendy McDonald is the Education Development Specialist – Clinical for Canon Medical Systems USA’s MRI products. The EDS is one of the major contributors to developing training material for both classroom and clinical settings for both internal and external training.

She was born and raised locally in Southern California. She attended a So. Cal college and received her A.A in Radiological Technologist program. Several years later she went back to school while still working full time for Canon to earn her Bachelors of Science degree in Radiological Sciences.

When starting out as a new graduate from the X-ray program she worked at a local trauma center performing radiographs at the busy facility prior to moving onto MRI. It was challenging and fast paced, but in an 18 month time frame she was given the opportunity to train in MRI. She has never looked back.

Prior to Canon, Wendy worked at a few facilities gaining experience on several MRI systems and field strengths. A common thread to all of her positions was she was the one that would take on the task to train new hires to her facility. She always enjoyed it and welcomed the challenge. This is where she got the idea she should do this for a living.

Let’s jump to the present. Wendy is a long running Canon employee. She started in Jan of 1998! She is enjoying her 21st year with the company. Wendy has held various challenging positions in the company. She started off as an MRI Applications Specialist. Working out in the field training Canon customers on how to effectively operate their system. She was transferred and lived in Florida for the first 5 years with the company. She then transferred to the MR Business Unit as a Clinical Marketing Specialist. This position moved her back to California. There she worked several years supporting both sales and Applications in supporting the new products the company introduced.

Looking to improve upon her own education. She went back into the field and attended on-line courses in the evening and achieved her B.S. in Radiological Sciences. By that time she was an NCSS- an MRI trouble shooter, working in the field. Another challenging and rewarding position. When an opportunity opened to help support the building in training material for both our Canon customers and our internal Apps Specialists, she became an EDS for the MRI dept. If you don’t see her presenting in a classroom, you can find her updating manuals and handouts for our ever updating systems.

Wendy currently resides in Orange County. In her spare time she can be found taking her dog for a brisk walk or out enjoying live music in the many venues southern California offers.
