Nuclear Medicine Technology is an exciting medical specialty that uses radioactive medications to image organs and tissues in the human body. Nuclear Medicine Technologists are responsible for preparing and administering the medications to patients undergoing Nuclear Medicine tests. They also operate the sophisticated scanners that are used to perform the imaging. The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program at Ferris State University is the only university-based program in Michigan. The program offers on-campus classes and labs along with a clinical internship in a Nuclear Medicine Technology Department.

Ferris State University offers two campus options for students pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Medicine Technology.
