Clinical tutor at King’s College Hospital Andy Cheetham demonstrates the use of a Technegas machine to trainees from the USA.
More than 20 trainee technologists from the USA have taken part in an educational visit in which they observed the clinical work of the nuclear medicine department at King’s College Hospital, London, and attended formal lectures delivered by the department’s staff. Students at Regis College in Massachusetts, Chattanooga State Community College in Tennessee and Indiana University spent some time in the department experiencing the work of a nuclear medicine technologist in the UK. The aim was to provide them with an opportunity to see how nuclear medicine is practised at an international centre of excellence.
The educational visit was the initiative of chief technologist at King’s Nick Gulliver and program director at Regis College David Gilmore. Both are keen to continue this collaboration, as Gulliver said: “The department is a leading centre for the training of nuclear medicine technologists, and we have a lot to offer students from abroad.”
