Nuclear Medicine Technology Bachelor's Degree


The Nuclear Medicine Technology degree will train students to conduct imaging procedures for medical diagnosis with small amounts of radioactive materials. This program is designed as a 3 + 1 where students will spend three years at ATU and a fourth off-campus year at one of our affiliate institutions. Students in this program will satisfy the prerequisites needed for entry into an affiliate institution, and may include the following courses: College Algebra, General Chemistry with lab, General physics with lab, Human anatomy and human physiology with lab (8hrs) and a communications course.  When the degree is completed, students will have learned to perform specialized imaging procedures such as Nuclear Cardiology, Positron Emission Tomography (PET) and general Nuclear Medicine Imaging.
