Code of Ethics

The Nuclear Medicine Technology Certification Board (NMTCB) is dedicated to the promotion of safe, competent medical care for any and all individuals. To that end, the NMTCB processes and evaluates applications for NMTCB certification, administers certification exams and monitors certificant continuing education and adherence to legal and ethical standards, including but not limited to the Code of Ethics of the Society of Nuclear Medicine Technologist Section. The NMTCB therefore requires those participating in these credentialing processes answer certain ethics questions during each renewal.  Below are the ethics questions that were asked during each of the indicated renewal cycles:
