At its recent Board of Trustees meeting, The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) extended recognition for the radiologist assistant program sponsored by Weber State University for three years and the radiologist assistant program sponsored by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill for five years.

ARRT evaluated the programs based on its recognition criteria for radiologist assistant education programs. To get or maintain ARRT recognition, educational programs must meet criteria including accreditation, clinical education, and preceptorship requirements, ARRT officials say.

“We congratulate the faculty of both programs and wish them ongoing success,” says J.J. Powell, ARRT Director of Education Requirements.
