Gannon University Radiologic Science Program Earns Accreditation

Posted: November 22, 2016

The Gannon University radiologic science program has received accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The program has once again received accreditation for the maximum period of eight years.

The JRCERT accreditation process offers a means of providing assurance to the public that a program meets specific quality standards. The process helps to maintain program quality and stimulates program improvement through program assessment.

Graduates of the Radiologic Sciences program are eligible to sit for the national certification and registration examination governed by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). In 2015, Gannon students achieved a 100-percent pass rate on this examination for the fifth consecutive year.

"Years ago the decision was made to undergo the rigorous process of the JRCERT accreditation as this is an opportunity for an external discipline specific agency to honestly inspect and evaluate our program," said Suzanne Sturdivant, radiologic sciences program director.

"The information gained from JRCERT site visits are instrumental to the ongoing success of our students and program. We are very pleased with the full eight-year award, as it is a testament of our tireless pursuit of excellence in education with continued improvement. This is particularly rewarding to the faculty, myself, Cindy Liotta, and Ron Cuzzola, all of whom are Gannon radiologic sciences program alumni."
