To say that we've been around the block is a gross understatement. Fact is, we were the first nuclear medicine technology program in the U.S. to rise to a master's entry-level status. And we remain the only one in Alabama. Our expert staff can provide you with a solid background through both didactic and clinical curriculums. You'll receive instruction about topics such as medical radiation physics, radiation detection instrumentation, pharmacology, anatomy, and physiology, among others.
Your directed clinical practice will give you much-needed experience in radiopharmacy, in vivo procedures, instrumentation quality control, and applied radiation safety procedures. We'll also teach you to operate the premier molecular imaging tool that physicians use to diagnose, stage, and treat disease. Finally, to prepare you better for the real world, we're going to give you professional development courses, plus research opportunities. This Nuclear Medicine Technology program at The University of Alabama at Birmingham can help you prepare for certification exams offered through the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board.
