Senate Bill 1726
Senate Bill 1726 requires all institutions of higher education to “identify, adopt, and make available for public inspection measurable learning outcomes for each undergraduate course offered by the institution. Section (c) allows an institution of higher learning to adopt learning outcomes identified by an institution’s recognized accrediting agency. In addition to meeting institutional accreditation standards developed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), our professional programs must also be accredited by discipline specific accrediting agencies.
The UT Southwestern School of Health Professions has one undergraduate program. The accredited professional program is designed to offer a structured curriculum with specialized courses developed to meet programmatic accreditation standards and outcomes as set forth by its national accrediting agency.
The courses offered in the Radiation Therapy Technologist (RTT) program are designed as a 20 month sequenced curriculum. Each course was developed as a component of the overall program curriculum to insure the RTT program meets the educational and professional standards and outcomes as set forth by the Joint Review Committee on Education
in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT). At the end of the program, graduating students sit for the National Certification Examination to become certified Radiation Therapists. Programmatic outcome measures are defined and reported in Sections 1.4 and 4.2 of JRCERT Guide for Program Analysis, designed to provide a detailed program evaluation.
