Clinical Education

Students entering the clinical education phase of the curriculum will have additional expenses to consider. Students are required to provide their own transportation to and from clinical affiliates. In addition to transportation costs, students will be required to purchase uniforms in accordance with the dress code established by the nuclear medicine major.

Advisory Committee

The Nuclear Medicine Technology Advisory Committee serves to provide ongoing communication between the sponsoring institution (Baptist Memorial College of Health Sciences) and its affiliates for exchange of information and ideas, and coordination of the program. Meetings are held at least semi-annually to ensure students receive adequate instruction and clinical experience. The focus of the committee is to review and evaluate the curriculum and clinical experience while monitoring student progress in the various clinical areas. The members of the committee include the program chair, medical director, clinical coordinator, students, and representatives from clinical affiliates and the health care community.
