Medical Accreditation Commission Honors Tri-C Professor
April 04, 2016
An international medical accreditation commission recently honored Catherine Bloor, an assistant professor of nuclear medicine at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), for six years of dedicated service.
The Intersocietal Accredition Commission (IAC) recognized Bloor for her two terms on the board of directors responsible for setting the organization’s accreditation standards for nuclear medicine programs.
The standards established by the board serve as a guideline to ensure quality patient care at medical facilities around the world.
“My work with the IAC focused on developing best practices to ensure that patients receive the highest quality care,” Bloor said. “That same emphasis is brought into the classrooms at Tri-C to instill our graduates with the highest standards as they enter the health care profession.”
Bloor is in her 10th year teaching in Tri-C’s Nuclear Medicine program at Western Campus in Parma. The program trains nuclear medicine technologists (NMT) to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of various cancers and diseases.
Bloor, of Amherst, also is a member of the Society of Nuclear Medicine Academic Council.
