The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program sponsored by Saint Louis University has been awarded continued accreditation for seven years by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology.
Accreditation is a multi-step process designed to ensure the quality of an educational program. It involves a detailed self-evaluation conducted by the program, followed by an assessment of the program's review and an on-site inspection conducted by peer specialists from the profession.
"The JRCNMT site visitors were very pleased with the overall performance and outcomes of the NMT program," said William Hubble, chair of the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapeutics and the NMT program director. "Our program is exceptional and leads other programs in producing award-winning undergraduate research and other scholarly works. This is representative of the overall quality and value of the other programs offered in the Doisy College of Health Sciences. We have an excellent reputation and our graduates are highly sought after."
The Nuclear Medicine Technology program is located in the Department of Medical Imaging and Radiation Therapeutics in the Doisy College of Health Sciences. Getting its start in 1969, the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program is one of the oldest programs of its kind in the nation. In 1981, the program became a discipline of the Doisy College of Health Sciences at Saint Louis University.
