Frequently Asked Questions about KU's certificate program in Nuclear Medicine Technology

Get answers to the most common questions we hear about the Nuclear Medicine Technology certificate.

I have taken a combined human anatomy and physiology course. Will this meet the course requirements to enter this program?
You are required to take two full courses and two labs total in human anatomy and physiology. The basic requirement is for a human anatomy course with lab and a separate human physiology course with lab.

If a combined human anatomy and physiology course was taken, it must have the lab component. In addition, you must have completed a second course (human anatomy and physiology II), also with lab.

Is a distance-learning option available?
No. All courses are conducted at KU Medical Center and require you to attend on campus. This is not an online program.

Do you accept transfer students?
No. The program does not accept advanced-placement, part-time or transfer students.

Is the background check required when applying to the program?
A background check is not required during the application process, but students are required to follow the background check procedure once accepted into the program and to complete it before entering the program.

I already have a degree, but it's not from a U.S. college or university. What steps do I need to take?
All non-U.S. transcripts must be evaluated before they will be accepted. Please see our information for international students page for more details about this procedure.
