Nuclear Medicine Technology Overview

Nuclear medicine technology is a health-related profession concerned with use of radiopharmaceuticals for diagnostic, therapeutic, and research purposes. Nuclear medicine is one of the diagnostic imaging modalities. It is a highly technical profession with a significant amount of patient interaction. The nuclear medicine technologist works very closely with the nuclear medicine physician, radiologist or cardiologist. There is a demand for well-trained nuclear medicine technologists. Jobs are available in hospitals, outpatient imaging centers, medical offices and commercial equipment and radiopharmaceutical companies.

The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program prepares students for entry-level positions as staff technologists. Each student receives a solid foundation in all routine nuclear medicine procedures. Graduates have a very high first time pass rate on the national certification exams.

Academic Advising

Students in their first two years will work with the Jacobs School Undergraduate Education office to create an academic plan, discuss course selection and workload management. Advisor assignments are determined by student last name.

The purpose of advisement is to provide students with guidance in course sequencing and selection. In-person advisement is required in your first year at the University to develop an appropriate academic plan to facilitate timely graduation.
