Program Accreditation Status
The MITR-RADR Program at El Paso Community College is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The JRCERT is involved in the establishment of educational standards leading to Program accreditation.
As stated in its website, “The JRCERT promotes excellence in education and elevates quality and safety of patient care through the accreditation of educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry. The JRCERT is the only agency recognized by the United States Department of Education for the accreditation of traditional and distance delivery educational programs in radiography, radiation therapy, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry.” The broad responsibilities of the JRCERT include consultation and guidance to educational programs and administration of the voluntary peer review accreditation process in radiography and radiation therapy technology, magnetic resonance, and medical dosimetry. The members of the JRCERT consist of radiographers and radiologists.
The “Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiography,” published by the JRCERT, establishes the minimum accreditation standards for an educational Program. The extent to which a Program complies with these standards determines its accreditation status. This document can be found online at
The MITR program currently has an active 5 year JRCERT accreditation.
