Nuclear Medicine Technology and Radiation Therapy students at North Central have a variety of opportunities to enrich their educational experience
|Immerse yourself in research
Adam Harris discovered his love for research while studying the ecological effects of an insecticide. He is now a PhD student in developmental biology at Duke University.
Prepare for medicine...
NCC's health sciences program helped Veronika Gagovic become a medical student at Loyola. Acceptance rates in medical, dental, veterinary, optometry, PT and other programs are excellent.
|Be active in student organizations
Student organizations get science majors active in academic and social events. Choose from the Pre-Health Organization, βββ biological honor society, Student Affiliates of the American Chemical Society, or the environmental group NCC Green.
|Support your studies with a fellowship
A Richter Fellowship paid for travel and living expenses while Wade Hicks carried out part of his research at UCLA. His experience strongly influenced his decision to go on to graduate study.
|Present your work
From North Central's own Rall Symposium on Undergraduate Research to national conferences, students like Devin Miller make connections when they present their research.
|Get practical experience
An internship at nearby Argonne National Laboratory was the turning point for Jeremy Schmutz, now a Human Genome Project researcher at Stanford University.
