The purpose of program evaluation is to systematically study, investigate and appraise the effectiveness of the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program in order to ensure that the program continues to provide a signature educational program that produces graduates who are prepared to be leaders in their field.

Graduate outcomes are indicators of program effectiveness, demonstrating the extent to which a program achieves its goals. Programmatic graduate outcomes data reported on the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology (JRCNMT) website include: 5-year time period of current report; graduation rate; The American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT) credentialing success; Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) credentialing success and job placement rate.
