Nuclear Medicine Technology

Nuclear medicine uses radioactive drugs and specialized instruments to help diagnose and treat disease and injury allowing evaluation of the function of the various body organs. In the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, students will learn the techniques of imaging, laboratory procedures and equipment operation to prepare them to work with patients and medical staff in a nuclear medicine department. In the first year of the Nuclear Medicine Technology (NMT) program, students will undertake detailed studies in laboratory arithmetic, physics, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, radionuclide instrumentation, nuclear medicine procedures, pathology, radiopharmacy and radiation safety. The second year of the NMT program involves three clinical practica where students rotate through all areas of a nuclear medicine department. Current clinical practicum sites are located in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, Regina, Saskatoon and Winnipeg. Certain courses are available by correspondence (distance education) and are marked by an asterisk (*) in the Program Outline. The courses must be completed within the time frame shown in the Program Outline. Please be advised that full-time student status requires the student to take 60 per cent of a full course load per semester. Depending on the number of courses completed by correspondence, students may be considered a part-time student, which may impact their financial loan status. To support their learning, students are required to participate in online courses throughout the practicum and will require access to a computer with Internet access and a printer.
