Students in the nuclear medicine program at Regis College combine courses in biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics to use the tools needed to diagnose and treat a wide variety of health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, and neurological disorders.

The program blends a strong foundation of technical skills with the traditional values of a liberal arts education. Students receive hands-on experiences in Regis’ state-of-the-art nuclear medicine lab before going to complete clinical rotations at cutting-edge hospitals and medicals centers in or around Boston, often working alongside leading technologists and physicians in the field. Faculty-led international trips and involvement within local and national professional meetings enhance student's opportunities to immerse themselves in the field before graduating.

Upon successful completion of the program, students earn a bachelor of science in nuclear medicine and are eligible to sit for the national certification board exams in nuclear medicine offered by the Nuclear Medicine Certification Board (NMTCB) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).

Program Outcomes

The Nuclear Medicine Technology program will prepare graduates who:

  • Select and implement appropriate exam protocols and scan parameters to provide high-quality diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine/molecular imaging services.
  • Assess the benefits and risks of radiation exposure to meet regulatory requirements, optimize patient radiation dose, and limit exposure to self and the general public.
  • Apply knowledge of instrumentation to operate nuclear medicine/molecular imaging equipment and to perform standard quality control activities.
  • Evaluate and analyze evidence-based research to advance the profession and promote lifelong learning.
  • Employ essential leadership and patient care skills to serve as a model of professionalism within the field of nuclear medicine/molecular imaging.
  • Demonstrate mastery of the didactic knowledge required for the national certification board exams in Nuclear Medicine Technology offered by the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Boards (NMTCB) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologist (ARRT).

I traveled to London with other nuclear medical students where we visited Kings College Hospital. It was fascinating to see how nuclear medicine is handled in other areas of the globe. It definitely gave us a different perspective on how technology is used all over the world.
