Nuclear Medicine is a medical imaging specialty that uses radioactive materials to aid in the diagnosis, staging, and treatment of illnesses such as cancer, heart disease and dysfunctional thyroid disease. Nuclear Medicine uniquely provides information about both the function and structure of virtually every major organ system within the body.
HCC's NMT program is offered on the Dale Mabry Campus with clinical experience at several locations throughout the greater Tampa Bay area. This program is fully accredited and requires a full-time two year commitment. Classes and clinical internships are offered only during the daytime. The program consists of a total of 75 credit hours. Successful graduates are eligible for both nuclear medicine certification exams: the NMTCB and the ARRT-Nuclear Medicine.
