• How can I set up local
experiential component of the program can be completed
in the nuclear medicine department at the hospital or at
the local nuclear pharmacy. If you are currently a
fellow/resident at a hospital with a nuclear medicine
department that has a generator on site, you may
complete your training at that site, under the
supervision of an Authorized User. If you do not have a
site available, the NEO faculty will be glad to help
set-up an appointment with a local experiential site.
