Baptist Health College’s School of Radiography Awarded Eight-Year Accreditation
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Baptist Health College Little Rock’s (BHCLR) School of Radiography was recently awarded an eight-year accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) upon submitting a self-study report in the fall 2022 and completing a site visit this spring. This accreditation is the maximum duration a program may be awarded by the JRCERT.
The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance and medical dosimetry. Specialized accreditation awarded by the agency offers institutions significant value by providing peer evaluation and assuring the public of quality professional education in the radiologic sciences.
“The accreditation process through the JRCERT means that the radiography program promotes excellence in education and keeps the quality and safety of patient care in our field in the forefront,” said Suzy Bullard, MHA, RT(R) (ARRT), program director of the School of Radiography. “By being accredited, this lets prospective students and current students know that the radiography program provides a quality education. By meeting the standards for an Accredited Program in Radiography for the JRCERT, we feel as if we offer a very sound program that offers up-to-date information in both academics and clinical site opportunities.”
