WVU Hospitals MRI program receives reaccreditation

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Program at the WVU Center for Advanced Imaging has been accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the only programmatic MRI accreditor in the country recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE). It is the only JCERT-accredited MRI program in the state. 

It is a 12-month certificate program offering comprehensive didactic and clinical education in MRI. It is open to radiologic technologists who have previously completed an accredited program in Radiologic Technology and have at least an associate’s degree. Students enrolled are eligible to participate in the USDE Student financial aid (Title IV) programs.

Successful completion of the Program qualifies graduates as eligible to sit for the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) primary certification exam in MRI, pending ARRT review and approval of the applicant. In addition, the Program fulfills the educational requirements for all U.S. states requiring state licensure or certification. It is sponsored by WVU Hospitals.

The program started in 2009 and has been under the direction of Brad Holben, M.S.H.A., R.T.(R)(MR), since its inception.

“Through a strong commitment to education and continued efforts to remain technologically advanced, we afford students in the imaging sciences an excellent environment for developing academic, clinical, and professional expertise,” Holben said. “By attaining the JRCERT’s maximum eight-year accreditation award, our efforts have proven successful, and we’re very proud of that.”
