A nuclear medicine technologist is an important member of the allied health team. This health care professional is trained not only as a specialist in patient care, technical skills and administrative functions, but also as a health care specialist with a strong background in the medical sciences.
A nuclear medicine technologist uses special equipment, procedures and radiopharmaceuticals to analyze patients’ physiological problems. Under the supervision of a physician, a nuclear medicine technologist also directs or participates in the daily operation of the nuclear medicine department and works closely with other health professionals.
The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program is a 12-month internship. The next program begins June 20, 2022.
Students receive both classroom and clinical education right at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, and regularly interact with patients, technologists and doctors.
