Ethics Questions

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:

Since January 1, 2021:
  1. Have you ever been charged with, convicted of, or pleaded guilty or nolo contendere to any criminal charge, misdemeanor (other than a minor traffic offense) or felony, and/or are any such charges currently pending against you in any court of law? (This includes any civil, criminal, or military court.)
  2. Have you ever had any professional or state license, registration, or certification application denied, or any issued license, registration, or certification revoked, suspended, placed on probation, or subject to any type of investigation or discipline by a regulatory authority, government agency, certification board in any jurisdiction for any reason?
  3. Have you ever been found by any court, administrative body, licensing board, including but not limited to employers or any entity of the armed forces, to have committed negligence (simple or willful), malpractice, recklessness, or engaged in misconduct in the practice of any profession?
  4. Have you ever been terminated or resigned to avoid being terminated from any employment position where the conduct leading to such termination/resignation has involved: child or elder abuse, sexual abuse, substance abuse, job-related crimes, violation of professional practice standards or employer policies, disciplinary or misconduct reasons, or violent crimes against persons?
