Danville Regional Medical Center (DRMC) today announced that that the School of Health Professions Radiologic Technology Program has been reaccredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and by the Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES). The Radiologic Technology program underwent two separate onsite surveys in November 2015 and December 2015. Surveyors evaluated compliance in areas related to policies, procedures, assessment plans, graduation results and employment/placement results. Accreditation was recently awarded for a period of eight years and five years, respectively.
Eight years is the maximum duration that may be awarded by the JRCERT. The Radiologic Technology program was evaluated according to the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography. The JRCERT is the only agency that is recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) for the accreditation of traditional educational programs in radiography.
In addition, the Radiologic Technology Program also received institutional reaccreditation from the ABHES. This reaccreditation approval allows for the Radiologic Technology Program to award an Associate of Applied Science degree upon program completion.
“We are so proud of the Radiologic Technology faculty and staff for their hard work and dedication that resulted in receiving not one but two reaccreditations”, said Alan Larson, Market President and DRMC Chief Executive Officer (CEO). “Their commitment to this program and to the students they lead is outstanding. The Radiologic Technology Program continues to excel.”
