Clinical Training

WHAT IS CLINICAL TRAINING?
The clinical education component of the program is a competency based process that provides the student with the knowledge and skills necessary to become an entry level Nuclear Medicine Technologist. The competency based process involves the observing, practicing, and applying technical knowledge and skills in a clinical hospital setting. Proficiency and skills in the performance of nuclear medicine procedures are assessed throughout the program. The program teaches students proper nuclear medicine operations under the direct supervision of registered/certified nuclear medicine technologists.

Students who are accepted without extensive clinical imaging experience will be required to complete NMT 100 - Preparation for Clinic, during the summer semester prior to beginning professional courses.
