Program Description for School of Nuclear Medicine Technology

The School of Nuclear Medicine Technology was established in 1972. The school of Nuclear Medicine Technology is part of the Department of Nuclear Medicine, which is comprised of four major areas: Clinical Imaging, Nuclear Pharmacy, Clinical Computer and Positron Imaging Center. The staff includes physicians, medical physicists, nuclear pharmacists, certified nuclear medicine technologists, residents and assistants. The Nuclear Medicine department is a major diagnostic center in the metropolitan Detroit area, using the most innovative procedures. The department uses state-of-the-art technology. The department also has an on-site cyclotron, which produces radiopharmaceuticals for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) imaging and an on-site nuclear pharmacy that prepares radiopharmaceuticals for general Nuclear Medicine.

The Nuclear Medicine Technology program is designed to prepare students for the clinical, theoretical, technical and psychological aspects of a career in nuclear medicine technology. During the program, students will be instructed in the technical skills required to produce high quality nuclear medicine images. They will also gain an understanding of the compassionate and skilled care required by a patient.

The School of Nuclear Medicine Technology accepts up to ten students each year for its 15 month program. The students will spend 40 hours a week in clinical rotations and classroom instruction in the Nuclear Medicine department.

The Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT) accredits the school.
