Welcome to NucmedTutorials

Announcement: New Tutorials Added!

In mid-November 2017 we expanded the number of tutorials from 28 to 34 and the number of available CEUs from 41.0 to 53.0. All tutorials have been approved by the VOICE program of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI). In addition, all 53 CEUs have been approved by CAMPEP and endorsed by the AAPM for Medical Physics Continuing Education Credits. Finally, for physicians requiring CME Credits to maintain IAC Accreditation, all 53 CME Credits have been approved by the IAC and our website is listed on the resources page of their website. The new tutorials, listed below, increase the number of Therapy credits available and, if you appreciate a mathematical challenge, several of them are perfect for you!

If a tutorial awards 1 CEU, The charge is $20.00.
If a tutorial awards 2 CEU, The charge is $30.00.

Please feel free to review the tutorials as often as you wish. The test may be taken once; if a score <80% is obtained, then the test may be retaken once.

Please note: for those of you wishing to earn CE Credit, if you take the test as a practice test, that counts as an attempt to pass the test. You cannot take the practice test multiple times and then receive CE credit. You may, however, review the tutorial as often as you wish.

Once we have received your test score sheets (which happens automatically every time you take the test) and your payment, we will do the following, usually within 24 hours:

  1. In the letter I received today it said “you will receive your CE Credit Certificate by email within 24 hours of completion of the last tutorial”. Does that mean that we have to take all 41 tutorials before we can receive any credits?
