The Nuclear Medicine Technology area of study is intended to prepare students as entry-level nuclear medicine technologists in a specialized area of diagnostic imaging which includes both body structure and function. Nuclear medicine technologists perform procedures to assist physicians in the diagnosis and treatment of patients. Graduates will be prepared to take the national certification exams for nuclear medicine technologies. This degree is offered to Howard Community College students through the Mid-Maryland Allied Healthcare Education Consortium. Students will typically complete most of the general education core and other courses related to the major at Howard and then matriculate to Frederick Community College to complete the Nuclear Medicine courses.
