Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology
Nashville General Hospital’s Radiologic Technology Program Receives Highest Accreditation Award
As the only hospital-based radiologic technology program in middle Tennessee, established in 1958, Nashville General Hospital’s radiologic technology program recently received a maximum eight-year accreditation award from the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the only radiologic technology programmatic accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The program which has been accredited since 1969 received a perfect score during its February 2016 site visit, which led to this award.
This accomplishment could only be realized through teamwork and commitment to excellence in radiologic technology education. The program has benefited from strong faculty and students, administrative support, and support from our clinical affiliate sites. Through our program, we are able to help fulfill our hospital’s mission to improve the health and wellness of Nashville by translating science into clinical practice.
The Radiologic Technology program is one of the programs delivered through the hospital’s School of Health Sciences Education. Other programs include a Cardiographic Technician program and preceptorship programs in MRI and CT.
