Nuclear Medicine Technology (Bachelor of Science)
This four-year curriculum leading to the Baccalaureate degree is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology . Nuclear medicine technology is the medical specialty concerned with the use of small amounts of radioactive materials for diagnosis, therapy, and research. Nuclear medicine provides valuable information about both the structure and function of major organ systems.
Students who already have an Associate in Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology are encouraged to apply for transfer into the program on a space available basis.
