Nuclear Medicine Schools

Nuclear Medicine Technologists administer pharmaceuticals known as radionuclides to patients in order to treat and diagnose illnesses and pathologies. Through the observation of chemical interactions that occur and the way they behave in the body, a diagnosis can be made. To learn more about individual programs, you may request information directly from nuclear medicine schools and find out about course offerings, online options, and more.

Due to the fact that there are very few nuclear medicine program currently available, you may wish to look into related programs such as radiology technician schools, ultrasound technician schools, or cardiovascular technology programs. If; however, you have a program in your state or you are willing to relocate, take the first step and learn more about their programs.



 

Nuclear Medicine Technology programs - FAQ's

What will happen after I submit my request for information?

Once you submit your request for information form, you will be contacted by a school representative shortly, usually no longer than 48 hours from your submission. The school representatives are experts on the school they represent and have detailed information about every program that the radiology school offers. This is your time to cut past the surface information presented online and get into the details. It is recommended that you take some time to write down a list of questions or concerns you have so that you can make the best of your conversation with the radiology school rep.

Can I request information from more than one school?

Yes. In fact, it is recommended that you get acquainted with more than one school so you can compare and contrast the programs. If there are multiple schools on your list, you may want to find out which ones have the newest technology or the highest conversion of graduates to job holders. Getting the information from multiple schools will make you feel more confident in your decision and there are no costs to you for gathering information from this site.

Will my personal information be safe?

The information you submit allows a school representative to reach out to you and provide you with detailed information about their radiology school programs. We will never ask for highly sensitive information such as a social security number. The information provided is limited to what is necessary to allow the representatives to contact you and to be aware of your program interests.

What questions should I ask the school representatives?

The school representatives are there to answer any possible question you have about nuclear medicine schools. If you are unsure that their program is a good fit for you, ask about the types of courses you will be taking, how long the programs take to complete on average, and if they offer any flexibility in their schedules. Get specific information about tuition, book, and supplies costs, find out when classes start, ask about prerequisites and admission policies. Some schools have multiple start date options. Does the school offer any online nuclear medicine courses in conjunction with the on-campus components? What percentage of their graduating students go on to find employment in nuclear medicine within the first few months out of school? Your goal is to be sure you feel good about the program and that it works for you and your specific career goals. 

I am not sure nuclear medicine school is the right choice for me? I am interested in medical imaging in general, but overwhelmed about the options?

Choosing which medical imaging program that is right for you can be overwhelming at first. Under the larger umbrella of radiology there are three main segments: radiography, diagnostic medical sonography (ultrasound), and nuclear medicine. Below these three there are even more branches: The common branches under radiography include CT (Computed Tomography), MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging), X-Ray (traditional radiography), and Mammography (Breast imaging). Ultrasound includes, vascular sonography, cardiac sonography, obstetric (ob-gyn), ophthalmology, neurosonology, and the list goes on. Nuclear Medicine is also closely related to radiation therapy. This is a simplified, high level view of the many paths to take among your radiology school options.

Where can I get more information about other medical imaging career options?

To get more detailed information on the above mentioned job paths, start at the radiology careers page, then you can go into the links for each separate radiology career path to learn more.
