Internship Information

NMT students, that have been accepted into the program, can apply to any, or all, of the UW-L affiliated hospitals listed below.  This is done during the Fall semester that precedes the internship year.  Students are strongly encouraged to apply to all internship sites they are interested in.  Applicants can use this recommendation form at any internship site, except Mayo.  Applicants can also use this application form at any internship site, except Northwestern Memorial and Mayo.  After they have evaluated the applications, the internship sites will then contact the students for interviews, which are often held during winter break.  Assignment to an internship site is not guaranteed, but will take into account both the students' and the hospitals' preferences.  Assignments are made in mid-March.

Marshfield Interns 2008All internships run for 12 months as required by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRC-NMT), which accredits the hospital education programs.  Most of the hospitals listed below begin their internships in late August - early September.  The exceptions are: Aurora St. Luke's, which begins in mid-June; and Hines, which starts at the beginning of July.

Upon successful completion of the internship, graduates are eligible to take certification examinations from the Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) and the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists® (ARRT). UW-L graduates have done very well on these exams, and have an excellent record of employment after graduation and certification.  On average, NMT graduates earn some of the best salaries of any new B.S. graduate.  Because of the strength and depth of our program, UW-L graduates are very competitive in the job market.

Please be aware that a felony charge may affect your ability to obtain fieldwork placements and/or sit for the board examination.
