(Marietta, OH, July 16, 2008) - The School of Radiologic Technology, sponsored by Marietta Memorial Hospital, articulated with Washington State Community College and affiliated with Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital, was awarded accreditation by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (J.R.C.E.R.T.) for a period of eight years, the maximum accreditation duration.
J.R.C.E.R.T. is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education for the accreditation of educational programs in Radiography. Specialized accreditation awarded by J.R.C.E.R.T. offers institutions significant value by providing peer evaluation and by assuring the public of quality professional education in the radiologic sciences.
The Radiologic Technology Program is a two-year certificate program that prepares students for the national certification examination by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (A.R.R.T.) to become Registered Radiologic Technologists.
Program graduates are prepared to enter the profession of Radiologic Technology to produce diagnostic radiographic images for radiologist's interpretation.
Many graduates continue their education in the fields of Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Computed Tomography, Mammography, Oncology, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging. Various employment opportunities exist at hospitals, clinics and physician offices.
The program's articulation with Washington State Community College (WSCC) allows the student to pursue and achieve an Associate of Applied Science degree in Radiologic Technology concurrently with the certificate award. The two-year program includes didactic education presented at WSCC and clinical educational rotations in the Radiology Departments at Marietta Memorial Hospital, Camden-Clark Memorial Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital.
