“Initially, I chose Roosevelt University because of all the health career programs they offered. Then, with the help of professors and advisors I was able to narrow down which clinical school I would apply to. The Northwestern Memorial Nuclear Medicine program consists of lots of curriculum along with clinicals that’s covered within a year. As it may sound intimidating at first, there are lots of outlets for help through teachers, mentors, and staff. I am beyond thrilled with the path I chose and would recommend it to anyone interested!”
