    nuclear cardiology staff-instrumentation.doc nuclear cardiology staff-instrumentation.doc Document Transcript

    • Included in this form are additional “Overview” tables for Medical and Technical Staff, additional forms for medical staff and technical staff background, experience, training and CME and an additional instrumentation form that will accommodate an additional three pieces of instrumentation. If you have more staff or instrumentation than will fit on these forms, you should do a “save as” of this document as many times as necessary to accommodate as many entries as you need. These forms are applicable to the nuclear cardiology application. Version 2.0 ICANL Accreditation Application Extra Forms Part I, Nuclear Cardiology Testing—Structure and Organization
