Nuclear Medicine Technology
The Bachelor of Science (BS) in Nuclear Medicine Technology degree, part of the Indiana University School of Medicine’s undergraduate program, will prepare you for a career in patient diagnostic and therapeutic services using gamma rays, X rays, and beta rays.
You will use the principles of radiation protection as you prepare and administer radioactive materials for a variety of exams and perform quality control procedures on instruments and materials. You may also assist physicians in clinical procedures, give intravenous injections, draw blood, assess technical quality of research studies, and provide basic patient care as a member of a health care team.
With an Indiana University curriculum that integrates theory and clinical experience , you will study patient organ imaging procedures, radioactive analysis of biological specimens, and some therapeutic applications of radioactive materials.
Upon admission to this program, you will complete a 22-month course of study that begins during the second summer session each year.
After graduation from this 120-credit program, you will be prepared to take American Registry of Radiologic Technologists and Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board certification exams. Certification and credentials are required to practice.
Begin your studies toward the nuclear medicine technology degree at IUPUC by completing prerequisite and general education courses. Then transfer to Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) campus and finish the program. Along the way, you will work closely with a University College (UCOL) academic advisor who will help you determine what courses can be completed in Columbus and develop an appropriate timeline for transferring to Indianapolis.
You must be in good academic standing to transfer to another Indiana University campus. Admission to this program is competitive and completion of prerequisite courses does not guarantee acceptance.
