Department of Radiologic Sciences
1-year PET/CT Certificate Program
Established in 2006, this is the first formal PET/CT Certificate program curriculum in the nation. The program is for certified nuclear medicine technologists. After completing the didactic and clinical portions of the PET/CT program, students may be eligible to take the ARRT (CT) and NMTCB (PET) certification exams.
Technologists who are certified in both nuclear medicine [CNMT or RT(N)] and in computed tomography [RT(CT)] are highly employable, especially with PET specialization [NMTCB (PET)]. Presently, employers are used to hiring technologists certified in only one of these areas.
Prospective students should contact the faculty advisor for more information.
Part-time, 12-month program, designed so that students can maintain their daytime jobs. Online didactic courses are completed during the fall and spring semesters. Clinical training is scheduled on a individual basis in the fall, spring and summer.
ARRT(N) and/or CNMT certification or eligibility.
