Nuclear medical technologists give patients small amounts of radioactive drugs to take precise images of the body. At Roosevelt, you’ll study chemistry, pharmacy and technology as you prepare to care for patients.
Complete your first three years of course work at Roosevelt University and finish your final year at Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
To become a nuclear medicine technologist, you need to pass a certification exam. Every Roosevelt graduate in the last five years earned their certification from the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) or the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT).
In the last five years, every nuclear medicine graduate has found a job six months after graduation. Nuclear medicine technologists earn an average of $79,590 per year (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).
