This program provides the basic skills required of a beginning staff technologist practicing in nuclear medicine. Upon satisfactory completion of the curriculum, the graduate will be eligible to write the national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and/or the National Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB).

All of the major requirement courses are to be taken in a sequential order or at the advisement of the department major advisor. A grade of C or higher is required for satisfactory completion of all courses. To continue in the program, a student may repeat a NMTT course only one time and may repeat no more than two NMTT courses while enrolled in the program. The term “repeat” shall be interpreted to mean re-enrollment following withdrawal, drop or unsatisfactory grade.

A student seeking entry into Nuclear Medicine must file a specific program application form and complete additional admission procedures as required. Information is available on the NMT website.

Students may not take any of the major NMT courses until acceptance into the program.
