Upon completion of the Communication Skills courses (COSK), students must complete a component of courses, (the specific number is determined by the student's academic "School") to meet one of the requirements for graduation. These courses called "Communication Skills Intensive" are integrated into the degree as part of the "major" areas on the checksheet. If you should have questions about this degree requirement, consult your academic advisor or the department head of your major.

As an introduction to the Nuclear Medicine profession , each student is required to spend a 40-hour observation period in a nuclear medicine department. This observation must be completed during the summer between the second and third year of this program. The Observation Form of recommended observed procedures must be completed and received by the clinical coordinator at the beginning of the fall semester of the third year. Failure to complete this requirement prior to the beginning of the fall semester fo the third year will impede the student's further progression in this program.
