Program effectiveness

The medical imaging program monitors performance measures including the following program outcomes:

Annual program completion rate:

  • 2017: 90% (18/20)
  • 2016: 90% (18/20)
  • 2015: 89% (17/19)
  • 2014: 100% (20/20)
  • 2013: 100% (20/20)

Five-year average ARRT Credentialing Examination Pass Rate:

  • 2013-17: 100% (95/95 graduates passed on the first attempt)

Five-year average job placement rate:

  • 2012-16: 97.59% (81 graduates employed within 12 months of graduation/83 graduates actively seeking employment)

Job Placement Rate is calculated using only the number of graduates who are actively seeking employment which may differ from the number of graduates posted in the program completion rate. Those graduates not actively seeking employment are not included in the Job Placement Rate data. The JRCERT has defined “not actively seeking employment” as at least one of the following:

  • Graduate fails to communicate with program officials regarding employment status after multiple attempts
  • Graduate is unwilling to seek employment that requires relocation
  • Graduate is unwilling to accept employment due to salary or hours
  • Graduate is on active military duty
  • Graduate is continuing education

JRCERT program effectiveness data

The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) accrediting body publishes program effectiveness data for all accredited radiography programs. This information provides program completion rates, credentialing examination pass rates, and job placement rates.
