Nuclear Pharmacy Certificate

The UT College of Pharmacy Nuclear Pharmacist Certificate Program consists of three courses pharmacy students are eligible to enroll in after successfully completing their second year of professional education: PHSC 257 - Introduction to Nuclear Pharmacy ; PHSC 258 - Basic Nuclear Pharmacy ; & PHSC 313 - Advanced Nuclear Pharmacy . The courses provide 200 hours of classroom and laboratory instruction that are credited toward the 700 hours required by the NRC to be an authorized nuclear pharmacist. The remaining 500 hours of experiential training can be acquired during two nuclear pharmacy rotations, internships, and working under the direct supervision of an authorized nuclear pharmacist either as a pharmacy student or after graduating. Documentation of hours from the didactic program and the experiential training are required in order to be listed as an authorized nuclear pharmacist on a pharmacy or hospital radioactive materials license.
