Curriculum
 

Students begin the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program in Summer term of each year. A total of 75 credits must be completed for this degree (48 for the CCC). The required general education courses are an important part of the program. Since admissions are highly competitive, it is strongly recommended that you take the core courses in the first and second semesters, particularly the natural science courses, before you are admitted to the program. Your success in the courses you take before applying to the program will improve your chances of being admitted, although taking these courses in advance does not guarantee admission.

Course content is sequential, and students must plan to enroll in all NMT courses in the order and during the terms indicated in the following curriculum outline.

HSC 0003

HSC 0003, Introduction to Health Care, is required of all students entering this program. To be considered for an exemption, program applicants must provide one of the following:

  • Current state license of certification in a health care field that involves direct patient care. Effective January 2003, you will be required to submit a written statement from your employer on official letterhead indicating that you have been actively employed in your field within the past 2 years.
  • Transcript from Miami-Dade County Public Schools showing completion of HSC 1 and HSC 2 within 2 years of anticipated entry to a Medical Campus Program.
  • Completion of an equivalent course at another accredited institution. Both an official transcript and a course description are required.

All students must provide a current CPR card for Health Professionals and HIV/OSHA certificate.  ALL APPLICANTS MUST COMPLETE HSC 0003 PRIOR TO BEING CONSIDERED FOR ADMISSION TO THE PROGRAM (OR SHOW PROOF OF WAIVER). HSC 0003 – Introduction to Health Care must be successfully completed prior to applying to the program.

 Terms 1 and 2 are general education requirement courses

(the completion of these courses does not mean the applicant has been admitted to the program.  Please see the admissions process on the Requirements page of this website. All of these courses must be completed to be considered as a candidate for the program.)

All Medical Campus students must complete the FDLE Waiver and Statement form.This form is to authorize dissemination to Miami Dade College - Medical Campus of any national criminal history record that may pertain to you.

In addition, all program students must complete a "background check" through the identified MDC agent https://ibrinc.com/mdc/select and cleared by the 1st day of class. Depending on your program of study an additional background check may be required. In addition, prior to entry into a clinical site, some clinical sites will require more frequent background checks and clearance.

Successful completion of the MDC level two background check process or completion of a MDC nursing/health sciences program does not guarantee a graduate's eligibility for participation in the professional credentialing process or for related employment. Credentialing agencies and health care employers may have additional eligibility criteria not required by an educational institution. Individuals who have been arrested or convicted of any felony crime during the last 15 years are strongly urged to inquire directly of the licensing board in the jurisdiction in which they intend to practice.
