This concentration was designed to educate students to meet a growing need for highly trained technologist who utilize rapidly developing technologies to image the distribution of radioactive agents in the body. Nuclear medicine is widely used for imaging bodies of patients with cardiac conditions and those with cancer. After completion of this concentration, students continue on to the post-baccalaureate clinical year in order to be eligible to take the national registry examination. Job opportunities may be found in hospitals, physicians' offices and diagnostic laboratories (total length of program 4+1 = 5 Years). The Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT) program is a 2 year program; the first year of the program is the senior year of the Health Science major. The 12 month, non-credit clinical year is the second part of the program. The combination of the 2 years are required to sit for the national certification exam and obtain NYS license to practice. Since this program is part of the Health Science major we only accept applications from Health Science major students once they reach their senior year.
