Membership

What’s In It For Me?

All SNMMI members automatically become members of regional chapters. The Pacific Southwest Technologist Chapter (PSWTC) includes Southern California, Arizona and a small portion of Nevada.

Considering membership in the Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging always results in the age-old question, “what do my dues dollars buy for me?”

Technologists are always looking for an economical way to meet continuing education requirements for the State or other credentialing organizations including the NMTCB and the ARRT.

SNMMI members can access free on-line exams from the Journal of Nuclear Medicine (JNM) and the Journal of Nuclear Medicine Technology (JNMT) that will provide CE credits to satisfy credentialing requirements. Best of all, the SNMMI maintains a transcript (VOICE credit transcript) of all programs completed and that transcript is available on-line at any time for members to print and submit to their credentialing organizations.

Additionally, low cost on-line educational programs are available in a variety of subjects including PET, PET/CT, Cardiology and Oncology. Members always receive a ‘member’s discount’ and are first to learn about additional programs that have been added to the website.

Continuing education programs provided by local chapters are another opportunity for technologists to acquire educational credit. SNMMI members always receive a significant reduction in registration fees to all SNMMI sponsored programs — that’s a savings of $25-$75 for each educational meeting attended. The Pacific Southwest Technologist Chapter offers 2-4 educational opportunities each year including an annual 12 hour CE program in Las Vegas, Nevada and a 6 hour CE program at the City of Hope Medical Center in California in the Fall (November/December). Expanded 8-12 hour educational programs are planned to rotate between Phoenix, Los Angeles, and San Diego beginning in 2007.
