Nuclear medicine technologists use radioactive materials, administered into the body, to detect and treat various diseases and conditions. This exciting healthcare field is experiencing faster than average job growth as America’s population ages. Additionally, Washington state is one of the top paying states for this occupation!

Bellevue College offers numerous academic options designed to meet the needs of students at varying stages of the profession. We offer the only Associates level Nuclear Medicine program in Washington state, producing highly qualified and employable students since 1990.  In that time, all students have passed a nuclear medicine certification exam, and the great majority are still working in nuclear medicine.
