School of Radiologic Technology Awarded Top Recertification

Posted on February 2011

We are happy to announce that the UWHC School of Radiology Technology was awarded full accreditation for the next eight years.

The school earned the maximum amount of recertification given by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the only accrediting agency for radiologic science programs recognized by the US Department of Education. The school was recertified after completing an extensive, year-long process consisting of a self-study report and a two day, on-site visit.

Since its founding in 1931 by Dr. Ernest Pohle, the UWHC School of Radiology Technology has been an impressive part of the Department of Radiology. It is the longest continuously operating school of radiologic technology in the United States and in 1946 it was among the first to be accredited by the AMA Educational Review Committee for X-Ray Technicians. Since then, it has coordinated with Marian College of Fond du Lac and UW-Milwaukee College of Health Science to develop a unique four year program. This program allows students to graduate with a certificate in radiologic technology from UWHC along with a BSRT degree from their university, making them eligible to write the national certification board exam in radiography through the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.

Congratulations to the UWHC School of Radiologic Technology!
