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
"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."
