Nuclear Medicine Technology

Program Overview

Keiser University’s Associate of Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology prepares students to perform diagnostic imaging procedures that enable doctors and other health care providers to see both the anatomy and physiology of the body’s organs and other internal structures. Nuclear medicine technology uses radiopharmaceuticals to provide clear and detailed images of organs and tissues and to chart disease processes. These images are analyzed by external devices called gamma cameras, which are designed to capture and interpret the radiation emitted by the body during the procedure. The program offers both classroom instruction and hands-on clinical rotations at local hospitals and medical centers.

    I was looking for an exciting career change within the medical field, and Keiser’s Nuclear Medicine Technology program gave me everything I wanted.  The staff helped make the process quick and easy.  One year into core courses, and I am so excited for graduation. The didactic material and clinical experience gave me the necessary knowledge and skills to be successful.  I am confident that the faculty has prepared me for the national board exams and my abilities as a technologist.

    Since the first day I stepped into the classroom, I knew that I had finally found a subject that could keep me curious and eager to return the next day to test my knowledge.  Throughout the program, I was challenged daily, yet I was encouraged to share ideas and ask questions with classmates and professors.  The small class and open discussion style further strengthened what was presented to me in the classroom.  I was fortunate to experience a variety of clinical sites that gave me the confidence needed to operate within the field of Nuclear Medicine.  Keiser University was the platform that changed me for the better and opened opportunities for me to provide for my family, and I’m thankful for every part of it.

  • I found that Keiser University’s Nuclear Medicine program of advanced studies and small class size was a perfect fit. I never came across a faculty member who wasn’t truly interested in my progress as well as available if I needed assistance. I had the opportunity to serve as the President of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society while balancing my program of studies. The clinical experience and exposure in the Nuclear program is outstanding, and I was actually made a job offer six months prior to graduation.
