Nuclear Medical Technology Training.
Simmons, Guy H., Ed.
This 1-day colloquium, attended by 23 participants representing societies, government agencies, colleges and universities, and other training programs, was conducted for the purpose of reporting on and discussing the curriculums developed at the University of Cincinnati for training nuclear medical technologists. Pilot programs at both the baccalaureate and associate degree levels have been established under a training grant from the Bureau of Radiological Health. Individuals going through the 2-year program are called Nuclear Medicine Technicians and those earning a baccalaureate degree are termed Nuclear Medicine Technologists. Twelve presentations were made and discussed, followed by four workshops devoted to preassigned questions involving such problems as (1) estimating the present and future needs for additional technologic personnel in nuclear medicine, (2) the content of the academic work in associate and baccalaureate programs, (3) methods of recruitment, and (4) future involvement of government agencies in sponsoring training programs.
