Development of Career Opportunities for Technicians in the Nuclear Medicine Field. Final Report.
Technical Education Research Center, Cambridge, MA.
This report describes a nationally coordinated program development project whose purpose was to catalyze the implementation of needed postsecondary educational programs in the field of nuclear medicine technology (NMT). The NMT project was carried out during the six year period 1968-74 in cooperation with more than 36 community/junior colleges and other institutions in 22 states. It involved more than 400 hospitals, 12 industrial employers, 29 universities, and particularly close cooperation with leading nuclear medicine practitioners, major NMT professional societies, and the American Medical Association on Medical Education. In addition, this report generalizes on the difficult problems which emerging occupations present to our nation's educational system and makes recommendations for systematic new approaches to keep our education relevant to the changing needs of new and emerging occupational fields.
