Nuclear Medicine Career Information
Nuclear Medicine encompasses a range of 'craft groups' including Physicians, Radiologists, Clinical Scientists, Radiopharmacists, Radiographers, Medical Physics Technicians and Nurses. Whilst there is no one model for Nuclear Medicine service delivery and hence it is not possible to give definitive information on roles and responsibilities, the following documents have been assembled with the view to answering frequent questions regarding career opportunities and educational and training requirements. See also the School and Students Section under Training and Education
For clinicians, there is a useful overview article on Nuclear Medicine as a Career published in the British Medical Journal.
