Nuclear Medicine Technology: A Suggested Postsecondary Curriculum.
Technical Education Research Center, Cambridge, MA.
The purpose of this curriculum guide is to assist administrators and instructors in establishing nuclear medicine technician programs that will meet the accreditation standards of the American Medical Association (AMA) Council on Medical Education. The guide has been developed to prepare nuclear medicine technicians (NMT's) in two-year postsecondary schools with clinical practicums provided by affiliated hospitals, though the program can be adapted to the needs of either one-year hospital-based programs or four-year baccalaureate programs. Included in the guide is information administrators' need to know to determine NMT program feasibility in their institution, program implementation procedures, course outlines, student performance objectives, and laboratory facility requirements. A bibliography listing materials useful for both administrators and instructors, appendices containing samples of useful documents, and lists and descriptions of organizations associated with post-secondary instruction on nuclear medicine technology are also included.
