The Master of Science degree program in Allied Health Sciences has a specialization in Medical Dosimetry. The program is designed to provide registered radiation therapists that have a B.A. or B.S. degree an opportunity for advanced education, training, and research. Graduates of the program are eligible to make application to the Medical Dosimetry Certification Board (MDCB).
The program may accept individuals with a bachelor’s degree in mathematics, physics, or science-related without the radiation therapy registry on a case by case basis. There will be additional prerequisites required.
Accreditation Status Change
As of February 16, 2017, The Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT), the national accrediting body for Medical Dosimetry programs, has placed the Medical Dosimetry program sponsored by the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center on Probationary Accreditation until June 2018.
The decision to place the program on Probationary Accreditation was due to graduate credentialing first attempt pass rates falling below 75% (Reported at 69%). “The Committee based this decision on areas of non-compliance with Standard Five: Objective 5.2 - Lack of assurance that the program documents effectiveness data - Five-year average credentialing examination pass rate of not less than 75 percent at first attempt within twelve months of graduation.”
Probationary Accreditation may be awarded when an accredited program is subsequently determined not to be in substantial compliance with the relevant accreditation standards. Probationary Accreditation is usually limited to one (1) year. It may not extend beyond two (2) years.
Once placed on probation, programs that still fail to comply with accreditation requirements in a timely manner, as specified by the JRCERT, may be scheduled for a focused site visit and/or risk having their accreditation withdrawn.
