Program Curriculum : A description of the basis for the program curriculum (i.e., how it is derived and validated). Include accreditation organizations, advisory committees or external groups that influence curriculum. Describe curriculum review activities including the review of course master syllabi. * Program outcomes were reviewed (and re-approved) by the radiologic technology advisory committee in Spring 03 to validate continued relevancy and compliance with the 2002 Standards for an Accredited Educational Program in Radiologic Sciences published by the Joint Review Committee on Education and Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). The department conducts assessment of 10 KPIs to measure its success in meeting program outcome expectations. Results are measured against published benchmarks and quality improvement actions are implemented where needed. The program’s curriculum was revised during winter and spring quarters, 2003 to remain current and compliant with the 2002 edition of the Professional Curriculum For Radiography as prescribed by the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT). Additionally, the RAT advisory committee reviewed and approved all planned curricular revisions at the Spring 02 and Fall 02 meetings. During Spring 2003, master syllabi for every RAT course were reviewed and where necessary, revisions were formally submitted through the College’s Curriculum Review process. Revised courses included RAT 111, 112, 212, 213, 214, 218, 232. New courses included RAT 132-Ethics and Law in Medical Imaging and RAT 229-Quality Management in Medical Imaging.

The program received an outstanding exit report and was subsequently received the maximum eight-year re-accreditation award. The program was required to submit an interim re-accreditation report which it did in September 04 (results not yet known) and is tentatively scheduled for its next full self-study submission in 2007. Most recently (in Fall 04), the ASRT curriculum was reviewed by the program chair and faculty to ensure the program curriculum is in compliance. While the work was time consuming but thorough, the result is a RAT program curriculum that matches in all cases that of the ASRT. II.
