Freshman Admission Policy. Freshman students who enter the University as declared Nuclear Medicine Technology majors are admitted into the program on a conditional basis. A seat in NMT for these students
is guaranteed if they meet the 3 conditions listed: (1) the student makes satisfactory progress towards the completion of all lower division math and science prerequisite courses in the first 2 years, (2) attains a
grade of C or better in all required math and science prerequisite courses completed, and (3) the student attains a minimum math and science prerequisite GPA of 3.0. Students entering via the Freshman Admissions Policy
must submit the online application through the School of Medicine and Biomedical website by February 1st of the sophomore year. All students that enter the NMT Program via the Freshman Admissions Policy will also be
interviewed in February of the sophomore year.
General Admission. Students accepted into Nuclear Medicine Technology as freshmen who do not meet the three conditions listed above, as well as students wishing to change their major, are considered for
placement in the program through the regular admission process. All students with a minimum prerequisite course GPA of 2.5 are encouraged to apply. Applications are made online through the School of Medicine and Biomedical
Sciences website: http://medicine.buffalo.edu. All eligible applicants are called for an interview in February.
All students must complete all required prerequisite courses prior to the fall semester in which they start taking upper division NMT professional sequence courses.
Transfer students must be accepted by the University and meet the program admission criteria. Prerequisite courses taken at another school must be equivalent in content. Questions regarding prerequisite course equivalency should be directed to the program
Transfer applicants must complete their university application (which includes sending official transcripts of the fall semester work) prior to January 15.
Nuclear Medicine Technology - B.S.
Applications to the program should be made before February 1st in the sophomore year. A minimum GPA of 2.0 overall and a minimum GPA of 2.5 in prerequisite science and mathematics courses is necessary
for consideration for admission into the program. Every applicant who can feasibly complete the prerequisite courses prior to the fall semester for which they seek admissions and has the minimum prerequisite course
GPA is invited for an interview. Selection is based on GPA and information gathered through the interview process. Decisions regarding acceptance are made prior to the end of the spring semester. Note: If a student
has more than one course to complete in the summer, they are not considered eligible.
Upon successful completion of all requirements, the student will have knowledge to:
Explain the physics, radiation biology, radiation safety & regulations, instrumentation, drugs, quality control procedures, clinical studies (diagnostic and therapeutic), and patient care and management
related to the field of nuclear medicine
Perform all routine diagnostic nuclear medicine procedures and quality control procedures in a timely fashion with minimal supervision
Demonstrate patient care and management skills
Discuss and demonstrate good oral communication skills, professional behavior, interpersonal skills, the ability to work independently and as part of a team
Demonstrate critical thinking and reasoning skills through a variety of activities such as journal article review, image artifact evaluation, class projects, case study analysis, problem analysis, etc
