Galveston College Nuclear Medicine Technology Program Reaccredited

Galveston College’s Nuclear Medicine Technology program has been awarded continued accreditation for the next five years by the Joint Review Committee of Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine.

The accreditation process enables prospective students to identify college programs that meet the national standards established for nuclear medicine technology programs.  The process also provides assurance to employers that graduates of the program accredited by the Joint Review Committee have received quality in education based on national standards.

Galveston College is one of only six colleges in the State of Texas offering a degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology.  Major hospital systems across the state hire graduates of the program.

The programs total student capacity is fifteen and hospital affiliates include Clear Lake Regional Medical Center, Hillcrest Baptist Medical Center, Scott and White Memorial Hospital and the University of Texas Medical Branch.

Students enroll in the Galveston College Nuclear Medicine Technology program in the fall and must complete twenty-four months of study with laboratory experience to meet eligibility requirements to take the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board examination in the fall of the graduating year.  Upon completion of the two-year curriculum, graduates are awarded the Associate in Applied Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology.  Once graduates pass the N.M.T.C.B. examination, they are registered as a Certified Nuclear Medicine Technologist.

Students can begin taking prerequisite courses in the 2009 spring semester and they can visit with program advisors concerning program requirements.
