8 Accreditation of Radiology Programs Who is the JRCERT? “The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) promotes excellence in education and elevates the quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry. The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education(USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.” Source: October 11, West Virginia Society of Radiologic Technologists 62nd Annual Conference October 9-11, 2014 Embassy Suites, Charleston WV

9 JRCERT Accreditation of Radiology Programs Mission Statement “The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) promotes excellence in education and elevates the quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.” Vision Statement “Assuring programs achieve excellence in education through programmatic accreditation.” Core Values “Maintains recognition by the United States Department of Education (USDE) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as the only programmatic accreditor for radiologic sciences programs. Believes educational quality and integrity cannot be compromised. Respects the rights and promotes the welfare of students and patients.

10 Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Programs Who is the JRCNMT? “The Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT) is the only programmatic accrediting agency recognized to accredit nuclear medicine technologist educational programs offered through traditional and distance education formats in the United States and its territories. The JRCNMT holds recognition from the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). The JRCNMT, with input from communities of interest, defines the standards for nuclear medicine technologist educational programs. The agency then uses those standards to conduct peer-review evaluations of programs seeking accreditation to ensure compliance with the standards. Programs that meet or exceed the standards are granted an accreditation status by the JRCNMT, providing public recognition and a basic assurance of the scope and quality of the professional program.”Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) Source: October 11, West Virginia Society of Radiologic Technologists 62nd Annual Conference October 9-11, 2014 Embassy Suites, Charleston WV

11 JRCNMT Accreditation of Nuclear Medicine Programs “The JRCNMT accredits postsecondary nuclear medicine technology programs offering certificate, associate and baccalaureate degrees. Programs must be located in the United States, its protectorates and possessions and may be offered in a traditional or distance education format. Not all states have educational institutions offering nuclear medicine technology programs. In some states programs may be offered that are not accredited by the JRCNMT.” Source: October 11, West Virginia Society of Radiologic Technologists 62nd Annual Conference October 9-11, 2014 Embassy Suites, Charleston WV
