Nuclear Medicine Technology: Additional Details

Let's give you the information you need.

Applicants and students of the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program should be aware of the following:

  • Annual verification of tuberculosis screening (PPD test)
  • Updated immunization records including hepatitis B, MMR and Tetanus-Diphtheria
  • Verification of varicella vaccination or show immunity (titer)
  • Evidence of physical examination within three months prior to beginning the program
  • Current certification in professional cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) from the American Heart Association, including infant, child, and adult CPR (certifications completed through on-line offerings are NOT acceptable)
  • Annual verification of a successfully completed mask FIT test
  • Verification of current personal healthcare insurance
  • Verification of CPR certification
  • Verification of AED training

AHU requires all new students to complete a background check before registering for the first time. This information is needed for participation in Service Learning projects and in clinical settings. Once admitted to a program, an updated background check may be required in addition to the drug screening and immunization requirements. The student is responsible for all costs incurred during this process.

NOTE: additional background checks may be required by assigned clinical sites or after specified time period has lapsed. Some facilities may mandate a level II check. Again, the fees for the checks are the student’s responsibility.


The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program incorporates five consecutive trimesters of clinical education. Students will attend clinicals two to three days a week depending on the trimester. Clinical hours may fall anywhere between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on each assigned day. NOTE:

  • Students can expect to drive up to 40 miles from the AHU campus to reach their assigned clinical site. Students must obtain their own reliable transportation. 
  • No preferential treatment is given to the assignment of clinical sites. We cannot make special accommodations based on the student's address, work schedule, or other personal obligations.
  • In a given trimester, you may be required to rotate to more than 1 clinical site.
  • Student health records must be recently authenticated in order to attend clinicals.
