Mission and Goals
 
The mission of the Medical Campus’ Nuclear Medicine Technology Program is to prepare competent practitioners in the profession of nuclear medicine.

The program is a 7-semester educational experience consisting of 75 semester credits for an Associate in Science degree. The 4-semester college certificate program (CCC) is available to healthcare professionals who meet the established criteria for entry. Prior to acceptance into the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, students complete course work in the basic sciences and general studies. Many of these courses have both lecture and laboratory components. Once accepted into the program, students are provided with opportunities to develop their medical skills and to expand their knowledge by participating in structured clinical experience under the supervision of nuclear medicine technologists and radiologists. In order to provide students with the broadest range of clinical experience, the program utilizes many hospital settings within Miami-Dade County. Retention, promotion, and graduation are not automatically granted to students in this program. The program coordinator and faculty review the performance record of each student at the end of every term, evaluating not only the exam grades and classroom work, but also the student’s clinical performance, patient interactions, professional behavior, and demeanor.

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.
