  • Compassion. It's often a defining quality for students interested in the field of nuclear medicine technology. Most commonly employed by hospitals and imaging clinics to use a scanner to create images of various areas of a patient's body, a nuclear medicine technologist can spend as much time with patients as their doctors—and therefore have as much of an opportunity to reassure and calm patients who are likely undergoing a stressful period in their lives.
  • All of MTSU's Health Science Pre-Professional Programs require a good amount of shadowing—of following and observing professionals in the field as they go through the daily routine. For many students, this requirement is also the experience that cements their determination to pursue their career of choice. Shadowing allows beginners to see, smell, hear, and feel what happens during a day on the job.

General Requirements

  • Admission to the MTSU pre-professional program does not assure admission to a professional program. In the beginning of the third year, the student should make application to the program of choice, following the procedures of the particular program. Selection for admission is competitive and is made by the admissions committee of the respective program according to its selection standards.
  • The limits on class size in most of the professional programs may prevent acceptance of some qualified applicants. In the event a first application is unsuccessful, the program may be easily changed to a Chemistry, Biochemistry, General Science, or Biology major leading to a B.S. degree, and then application may be made a second time.
