Nuclear Medicine Technology Program
Nuclear medicine technologists work closely with the imaging physician to diagnose
and treat disease. The field combines chemistry, physics, mathematics, computer technology,
and medicine in diagnostic imaging using small amounts of radioactivity. Although
many diagnostic imaging techniques are available, nuclear medicine uniquely provides
information about both the structure and function of virtually every major organ system
within the body. This ability to characterize physiology separates nuclear medicine
from other imaging modalities, such as X-ray and MRI. Nuclear Medicine procedures
are safe, involve little or no patient discomfort, and do not require anesthesia.
We offer three pathways into the Bachelor of Science in Radiologic Sciences degree program with a major in Nuclear Medicine Technology.
College students with no previous health care credentials may transfer 60 semester hours of liberal arts courses. Application deadline is April 1, 2015
Pathway 2: Baccalaureate Degree Completion Program for Credentialed NMTs
Credentialed NMTs may obtain advanced professional studies culminating in a BSRS degree. Application deadline is January 1, 2015
Pathway 3: Baccalaureate Degree Completion Program for Military-Trained NMTs
Military NMTs with Phase I and Phase II military training may achieve advanced professional studies culminating in a BSRS degree and eligibility for national credentialing examinations. Application deadline is Jan. 1, 2015
All undergraduate transfer students, regardless of major, with less than 60 hours of transfer credit by the start of the program will be required to take WELL 1000: Wellness and two activity courses. If a transfer student believes she/he has taken comparable coursework elsewhere and transfer credit is not awarded, the applicant may petition the Chair of the Department of Kinesiology to review and award potential credit.
All undergraduate transfer students, regardless of major, with more than 60 hours of transfer credit are exempt from this requirement.
