Specialty of Nuclear Medicine




Nuclear Medicine


Since medical education eventually leads to training of responsible, professional, and committed individuals who provide the community with health services, specialized areas of medical sciences are inseparable from the areas providing the patients and society with health services despite all their different approaches and attitudes. Students passing the specialized program must gain the necessary knowledge and skills in a quiet and anxiety-free environment, because they will be responsible for managing diseases and provision of the health services in different aspects in the future, and in addition to acquiring the needed competencies, knowledge, and skills, they must gain other qualifications, such as professionalism, communicating with patients, establishing a professional communication with colleagues and other staff, and management of facilities and human resources in the professional environment, etc. The Nuclear Medicine committee members have compiled the current curriculum using above mentioned approach and spending hundreds of hours prepared the curriculum and after legal proceedings, the executive universities were provided with this curriculum.
