Eight to ten candidates are selected each year for the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program on a competitive basis. Classes begin the first Tuesday in September.
You must submit your application after November 1 and before January 21 prior to your August start date. Your application and all supporting documentation must be received by January 21 of the year you wish to begin classes. A non-refundable $35 application fee is payable by credit card via the online application.
Step 1: To apply to the program, please submit the following materials:
- Official transcripts from all educational institutions you attended after high school, including all college and/or university credits and grades from your most recent quarter/semester.
Transcripts may be sent directly to MSHS from the school and must include an embossed seal. If, however, they are sent to you first, include the transcripts with your application in their original, unopened envelopes.
- Two letters of recommendation: one each from an educational reference and a work reference.
- Letters should be submitted as part of the online application.
- If necessary, letters completed off-line must follow the same format as if completed online and be mailed in a signed sealed envelope.
Please send the required materials that are NOT completed online, plus any transcripts not sent directly to MSHS, in one envelope to:
Mayo School of Health Sciences
Siebens 11-Nuc Med
200 First Street SW
Rochester, MN 55905
Step 2: Complete the Mayo School of Health Sciences' online application form
Step 3: Applicants considered for an appointment will be invited to visit Mayo Clinic in Rochester for a personal interview with the program director and program's admissions committee. An interview can be arranged only when your application file is complete.
During the interview, you will meet the other candidates and receive materials about Mayo Clinic and Rochester. Current students will give a tour of Mayo's nuclear medicine facilities.
Step 4: Appointment letters are mailed approximately March 10. A written acceptance letter is requested within 10 days.
