Students in the Bachelor of Science in 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 major combines course work with real-world, hands-on experiences inside classroom and clinical settings, allowing you to cultivate applied skills and the knowledge necessary for careers in not only nuclear medicine but several innovative health sciences and medical imaging fields. The major's curriculum will also prepare you for graduate school possibilities.
The program blends a strong foundation of technical skills with the traditional values of a liberal arts education. Students receive classroom as well as hands-on experiences in Regis’ state-of-the-art nuclear medicine lab before going to complete clinical rotations. Clinical rotations are at cutting-edge hospitals and medicals centers in or around Boston. Within these clinical studies you will collaborate with other medical professionals on interdisciplinary teams. Our experienced instructors will teach you how to utilize your critical thinking and problem-solving skills to make sound decisions and take corrective actions as needed.
As a nuclear medicine technology student, you will model the highest ethical standards and adherence to radiation protection standards and regulatory compliance.
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).
The nuclear medicine technology program will prepare graduates who:
