Our Mission

To establish, maintain and promote quality education standards in diagnostic medical sonography.

10-Year Accreditation

At its most recent meeting the JRC-DMS Board of Directors revised the requirements for accredited programs to apply for 10-year accreditation.
The full policy is available in the JRC-DMS Policies & Procedures located at www.jrcdms.org/standardsandprocedures.htm.

CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines

The 2011 version of the CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines for the Accreditation of Educational Programs in Diagnostic Medical Sonography are now available for download at www.jrcdms.org/standardsandprocedures.htm. The major changes to Standards and Guidelines are highlighted in yellow for easy identification.

Self Study Forms

Updated Self Study Forms are now available for download from the website. Be aware that the old forms will no longer be accepted after June 30, 2012. Old forms submitted after this date will be returned to the program and the new forms completed before the review process will begin. To download the current Self Study form, please visit www.jrcdms.org/seeking.htm and click on JRC-DMS Self Study.

Substantive changes include but are not limited to, changes in primary staff members, curriculum changes, increase or decrease required student clinical hours and change in sponsorship. Changes in clinical sites and instructors need only be indicated in the program's annual report.
