The University of Maryland Medical Center School of Medical Dosimetry is a one year, certificate program accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). Accreditation of our program has been effective since May 10, 2007 and was last reviewed by the JRCERT on May 10, 2010.
The Department of Radiation Oncology, under the auspices of the University of Maryland Medical Center, started the School of Medical Dosimetry in 2001. Students of this program are University of Maryland Medical Center employees, not students of the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Our one-year program combines an extensive curriculum with hands on training to prepare our students for a career in medical dosimetry.
Information on our curriculum is provided in our Handbook (PDF). Our program provides each graduate who completes all competencies a Certificate of Completion. We are not a degree-granting program. The School of Medical Dosimetry is not presently recognized as a degree-granting Higher Education Organization, or branch of such, by student loan managing agencies.
Course credits from our School of Medical Dosimetry cannot be counted towards a higher education degree from a higher education organization, nor can credits from other programs be counted by our program. However, to demonstrate our commitment to educational excellence, the University of Maryland Medical Center's School of Medical Dosimetry was previously recognized by the Medical Dosimetry Certification Board, and is presently accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT).
