1. Administering the Accreditation Review Process


The JRCERT reviews educational programs to assess compliance with the Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography.
The accreditation process includes a site visit.
Before the JRCERT takes accreditation action, the program being reviewed must respond to the report of findings.

The JRCERT is responsible for recognition of clinical education settings.


2. Accreditation Actions
JRCERT accreditation actions for Probation may be reconsidered following the established procedure.
JRCERT accreditation actions for Accreditation Withheld or Accreditation Withdrawn may be appealed following the established procedure. Procedures for appeal are available at www.jrcert.org.
All other JRCERT accreditation actions are final.
A program or sponsoring institution may, at any time prior to the final accreditation action, withdraw its request for initial or continuing accreditation.

Clinical Courses
RADT 1320- CLINICAL RADIOGRAPHY I

Introduces students to the hospital clinical setting and provides an opportunity for students to participate in or observe radiographic procedures. Topics include: orientation to hospital areas and procedures; orientation to mobile/surgery; orientation to radiography and fluoroscopy; participation in and/or observation of procedures related to body cavities, the shoulder girdle, and upper extremities. Activities of students are under direct supervision.


RADT 1330- CLINICAL RADIOGRAPHY II

Continues introductory student learning experiences in the hospital setting. Topics include: equipment utilization; exposure techniques; attend to and/or observation of routine projections of the lower extremities, pelvic girdle, and spine; attend to and/or observation of procedures related to the gastrointestinal (GI), genitourinary (GU), and biliary systems; and attend to and/or observation of procedure related to minor radiologic procedures. Execution of radiographic procedures will be conducted under direct and indirect supervision.


RADT 2340- CLINICAL RADIOGRAPHY III

Provides students with continued hospital setting work experience. Students continue to develop proficiency in executing procedures introduced in Radiographic Procedures. Topics include: patient care; behavioral and social competencies; performance and/or observation of minor special procedures, special equipment use, and participation in and/or observation of cranial and facial radiography. Execution of radiographic procedures will be conducted under direct and indirect supervision.


RADT 2360- CLINICAL RADIOGRAPHY IV

Provides students with continued hospital setting work experience. Students demonstrate increased proficiency levels in skills introduced in all of the radiographic procedures courses and practiced in previous clinical radiography courses. Topics include: patient care; behavioral and social competency; advanced radiographic anatomy; equipment utilization; exposure techniques; sterile techniques; integration of procedures and/or observation of angiographic, interventional, minor special procedures; integration of procedures and/or observation of special equipment use; integration of procedures and/or observation of routine and special radiographic procedures; and final completion of all required clinical competencies.

STATEMENT:


The Director and Faculty of the program recognize the Standards for an Accredited Education Program in Radiologic Sciences of the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology as a guide in establishing the Clinical Education Master Plan of Columbus Technical College School of Radiologic Technology.
OBJECTIVES:
To provide a balanced education in a quantity and variety of radiographic examinations and equipment
To establish a standardized system to schedule, evaluate, and document the students’ progress and proficiency.

SCHEDULE OF ROTATIONS

The Standards for an Accredited Education Program in Radiologic Sciences adopted by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) states that the clinical education setting to include all clinical affiliations for the Program:




  • Be recognized by the JRCERT

  • Provides the clinical staff in radiography with the ration of students and staff prior to student competency achievement in a given examination or procedure shall no exceed 1:1

  • Supports the mission and goals

  • Supports the educational process

  • Supports the student attainment of program learning outcomes

  • Supports the number of enrolled students

  • Provides students with a variety and volume of procedures (numbers and types of) for competency achievement.

  • Assures that the clinical staff understands the clinical competency system.

1. Scheduling


The following page is a sample schedule of planned assignments for clinical education. In each of the clinical assignments, a Registered Radiographer is required to be present for direct supervision during all radiographic examinations.
The clinical schedule is planned in conjunction with the didactic portion of the program. The proficiency program is also planned in accordance with the clinical schedule so that students will be able to observe exams being instructed one semester and begin performing those exams for competency the following semester. The requirements of the proficiency program are outlined in Section 3.
