Classes for new nuclear medicine technology students begin in the Fall semester (August) and run for 15 consecutive months. During the 15 month program, students participate in a structured rotation sequence through an accredited nuclear medicine program.
To be admitted to the Nuclear Medicine, students must meet one of the requirements listed below:

When both requirements have been met, the Chair of the Department of Radiologic Sciences will formally notify the Office of Admissions & Records and credit will be recorded on the student's transcript for 50 hours of ASU Radiologic Technology courses.
