A candidate for the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program should be able to speak, to hear and to observe patients in order to elicit
information, and to perceive nonverbal communications. A candidate must be able to communicate effectively and sensitively with
patients. Communication includes not only speech, but also in reading and writing. The candidate must be able to communicate
effectively and efficiently in oral and written form with all members of the health care team. A candidate should be able to execute
motor movements reasonably required to provide general care and emergency treatment of patients. This includes the ability to turn
and maneuver the patient and to administer radiopharmaceuticals or other intravenous medications. The candidate must be able to
operate imaging equipment including computers. Such actions require coordination of both gross and fine muscular movements,
equilibrium and functional use of the senses of touch and vision. A candidate must possess the intellectual skills, (a minimum GPA of
2.50, and a grade of ‘C’ or higher in all NMT courses are required), emotional health and stability required for the full utilization of his
or her intellectual abilities, the exercise of good judgment, the prompt completion of all responsibilities attendant to the care of
patients. Compassion, integrity, concern for others, interpersonal skills, interest and motivation are all personal qualities that are
assessed during the admissions and educational processes.
I understand that upon successful completion of the Nuclear Medicine Technology program, I will be eligible to take a national
certification examination in the profession. Two certification examinations are available in Nuclear Medicine Technology; one offered
by American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) and the other by Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board
(NMTCB). I agree to take at least one of these examinations and to provide my scores to the UW-L NMT Director.
Eligibility for the ARRT examination requires that the candidate be of "good moral character". Conviction of a misdemeanor or felony
may indicate a lack of good moral character for ARRT purposes. ARRT pre-application review procedures allow individuals who are
not yet enrolled in an educational program to determine if a conviction would interfere with their later certification exam eligibility.
The NMTCB is dedicated to the promotion of safe, competent medical care for any and all individuals. To that end, the NMTCB
processes and evaluates applications for NMTCB certification, administers certification exams and monitors adherence to legal and
ethical standards, including but not limited to the Code of Ethics of the Society of Nuclear Medicine Technologist Section.
Also, in 1998 a Caregiver Law went into effect in the state of Wisconsin. This law requires that hospitals and clinics in Wisconsin have
background disclosure forms and criminal background checks on all employees and students (interns) that work with patients. If this
is a concern for you please contact the NMT Program Director at UW-L, for further information.
Internships are determined by the hospitals or clinics, not by the university. I agree to apply to each of the internship sites that I would
like to attend (The Mayo Clinic has a GPA requirement of 2.75 while the others are 2.50). Furthermore, I agree to accept an
internship at any of the sites if offered. I understand, however, that I will be able to rank the internship sites that the University of
Wisconsin-La Crosse is affiliated with, and that every effort will be made to place me into one of my higher ranked sites.
I acknowledge that the information I have supplied in this application form is truthful and, to the best of my knowledge, correct and I
understand that any falsification of the information on this form may be considered as just cause for my rejection as an applicant to the
I authorize the UW-L NMT Selection Committee to review a current copy of my academic records as part of this application. I further
authorize the UW-L NMT Selection Committee and the Program Directors of any of the Nuclear Medicine Technology Hospital
affiliates to verify my employment and academic history. I also authorize the institutions of higher education that I have attended to
supply any information regarding my association with them that the Selection Committee or the Program Directors of the affiliate
hospitals desire. I further release members of the Selection Committee and the Program Directors of the affiliate hospitals from any
liability associated with their review and associated investigations of my application materials. Finally, I will accept the Selection
