  • Survey results found that an estimated 16,454 radiography students, 1,204 radiation therapy students, and 1,175 nuclear medicine technology students enrolled in educational programs this year.

    The numbers translate into a 3.2% increase in enrollment for radiography programs, a 2.3% decrease for nuclear medicine technology programs, and a 1.8% decrease for radiation therapy programs compared to last year.

    The report also noted that a total of 16,011 qualified students were turned away because program directors limited enrollment or programs were at full capacity. Fifty-four percent of radiography programs and 48% of radiation therapy programs reported full enrollment, according to the survey findings. However, only 18% of nuclear medicine technology programs were at full capacity.

    In addition, approximately 81% of radiography students and 82% of radiation therapy students found employment in their respective disciplines within six months of graduating in 2010. However, only 58% of nuclear medicine technology students were able to get jobs, compared with 71% the previous year.
