NEW HAVEN — Gateway Community College’s (GCC) Nuclear Medicine Technology program has been awarded continued accreditation for the next seven years by the Joint Review Committee on Educational Programs in Nuclear Medicine Technology.

The visiting committee praised the new facility at GCC which features a state-of-the-art nuclear medicine laboratory. They also commended the supportive relationship that GCC has fostered with the 13 different clinical sites where students train.  “They visited few of our clinical sites and were very pleased with the training and support our students receive there  and how much it complements what they learn in the classroom and in our own lab,” said Beata I. Gebuza, MS, CNMT, RTN, NCT, associate professor and program coordinator of GCC’s Nuclear Medicine Technology. “It takes a lot of effort to build relationships with the hospitals so that we can provide learning opportunities for our students. We are very happy to have received the seven-year accreditation.”

GCC’s associate in science degree and certificate programs in nuclear medicine technology afford students an opportunity to train at health-care facilities around the state including Yale-New Haven Hospital, YNHH-St. Raphael Campus, VA Connecticut Health Care’s West Haven campus, Griffin Hospital, Milford Hospital, Midstate Medical Center, Middlesex Hospital, Backus Hospital, Waterbury Hospital, Cardinal Health Nuclear Pharmacy, Lawrence and Memorial Hospital, St. Francis Hospital and the UConn Health Center.
