Nuclear Medical Technology. Curriculum for a Two Year Program. Final Report.
Buatti, A.; Rich, D.
Objectives of the project briefly described here were (1) to develop curriculum for a two-year nuclear medical technology program based on a working relationship between three institutions (community college, university health center, and hospital) and (2) to develop procedures for the operation of a medical imaging and radiation technology core program for radiologic, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, radiotherapy, and biomedical technology. Methods used in the interinstitutional cooperative curriculum development effort are summarized, followed by a general description of the curriculum, a curriculum outline, and brief descriptions of the courses. A time schedule for students and an outline of student hours are presented. Twenty pages of instructional objectives for each course are provided, followed by recommended texts, laboratory manuals, and references. A general description of the medical imaging and radiation technology core program is included, along with an explanation of the cooperative relationship of the core program with the community college and hospitals. Conclusions and recommendations regarding the cooperative curriculum development effort are presented, followed by a bibliography. Essentials of an Accredited Educational Program for the Nuclear Medical Technologist are appended. An outline of Naval training programs for nuclear medicine technician, x-ray technician, x-ray technique, clinical nuclear medicine technician, and radioactive isotope technician is also appended.
