The College’s Accreditation program assesses facilities that provide diagnostic and medical services to ensure they are meeting the quality and safety standards Albertans expect.
We accredit privately-operated facilities for diagnostic imaging, diagnostic laboratory testing, non-hospital surgical services, sleep medicine neurophysiology, cardiac exercise stress testing, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and pulmonary function testing. We also accredit some hospital-based diagnostic facilities through contract with Alberta Health Services.
Accreditation standards are developed in collaboration with industry experts, and expert advisory committees ensure physicians have the necessary training and skills to perform specific services in accredited facilities.
We also administer the Electrocardiogram Interpretation Examination to physicians who want to provide ECG interpretation as an insured service.
