Mammography Program Caps Off Year-Long Rad Tech Expansion

Posted on Wed, Oct 19, 2016

Your eyes don’t deceive you: there’s something different about the Nebraska Methodist College website.

For the rest of October 2016, the signature blue of the Methodist Health System and its affiliates has given way to the color pink on the NMC website.

This acts as a show of solidarity with National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but it’s far from the only thing happening on campus. We also just announced an online mammography program, which will give Radiologic Technology specialists the tools they’ll need to conduct diagnostic imaging of the human breast.

Stay in the Game with a Physical Therapist Assistant Degree

Posted on Mon, Sep 26, 2016

A physical therapist assistant degree is the perfect fit for student athletes.

Very few people will have the opportunity to play professional sports. For most, that means the world of athletics ends at the high school or collegiate level.
