Nuclear Medicine Technology Admission
Applicants must either be certified as a Radiologic Technologist or have a minimum of an Associate's Degree (preferably in a healthcare related field). Prerequisite college level courses in general physics, general chemistry, college algebra, speech/oral communications, introduction to Computers, human anatomy and physiology I and II, and medical terminology are required. For those applicants not currently employed in a healthcare related field, prerequisite courses must have been successfully completed within five years of the time of application. However, based on individual-specific criteria, this requirement may be waived by the program director.
Completed applications must be received no later May 1 to be considered. A $25 non-refundable application fee is required. Qualified applicants are contacted to arrange a personal interview. Acceptance is based on an evaluation of prior educational and work experience, personal and professional references, transcripts, and personal interviews. Each applicant is evaluated using a point system.
Classes are limited to eight students. At the conclusion of the admission process, the applicants with the highest scores are chosen for the new class. One alternate is selected in the event that one of the chosen students declines acceptance. Applicants are notified regarding acceptance into the program following completion of the interview process.
