Nuclear Medicine is the use of radioactive materials and sophisticated electronic scanning equipment to diagnose and treat certain suspected or known disorders of the human body. The three most common procedures are organ imaging, laboratory analysis and therapeutic administration.
Students enrolled in the 22-month Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT) program spend the first year building a core of liberal arts and science courses and basic concepts of NMT. The second year is spent primarily in clinical training, with additional instructional courses at the College.
NMT students must complete the minimum number of required hours of clinical instruction, which are scheduled throughout the program in collaboration with clinical affiliates. Clinical hours occur during all College sessions, including Interterm.
