ADDITIONAL COMMENTS AND OTHER SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS: This elective allows the student to gain experience in both clinical
  and research applications of nuclear medicine, including positron emission tomography (PET), SPECT, and other imaging techniques
  and their relationship to primary care areas. * Throughout normal hours of operation, students are involved in observing and monitoring
  patient studies. Students are encouraged to work on specialized projects in conjunction with faculty members.
