St. Johns River State College’s Radiologic Technology program was recently awarded accreditation for a period of eight years by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the only agency recognized by both the United States Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation for the accreditation of radiologic science programs.

In a letter to SJR State President Joe Pickens, JRCERT chair Laura Aaron said, “Specialized accreditation awarded by the JRCERT offers institutions significant value by providing peer evaluation and by assuring the public of quality professional education in the radiologic sciences.”

According to Associate Dean of Allied Health Holly Coulliette, “Our commitment to providing an outstanding Radiologic Technology program is evident with the pursuit of initial accreditation. The award of initial accreditation for eight years signifies the maximum amount that the Committee will allow.  This commitment to excellence validates the hard work and dedication of faculty, staff and clinical affiliates to work effectively as a team. It is also an indication that students who graduate from our program will strengthen the health care team and move the radiologic technology profession forward.”  

SJR State’s Radiologic Technology Associate in Science degree program is a limited access program that admits students once per year. After completing the program, students are eligible to take the national certification examination in radiography administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). ARRT certification is recognized throughout the country.

Located on the College’s St. Augustine campus, SJR State's health-sciences building is designed to simulate a real hospital. Students use state-of-the-art technology that provides the latest hands-on training in mobile fluoroscopy C-arm, portable X-ray machine, live-video X-rays and more. Clinical rotations are scheduled throughout the Northeast Florida region and provide students with "real-world" experiences. Career counseling is provided at the end of the program and includes interpersonal communications, team-building skills, mock interviews and training in resume writing.
