Three Nuclear Medicine Interns Complete Practicums
ALTOONA, Pa., August 16, 2017 - Two Blair County residents and one Centre County resident have completed nine-month Nuclear Medicine internships, a pre-requisite to sit for national accreditation exams.
The internship at UPMC Altoona allows nuclear medicine technologists to apply knowledge learned in a classroom to the hospital-patient setting.
Duncansville residents Brooke Ickes, daughter of Bill and Monica Ickes of Duncansville, and Fatimah Qung, daughter of Mohammad Qung and Sameh Fakeeh of Saudi Arabia, completed their education through the University of Findlay in Ohio.
Hannah Franchock, a student of Robert Morris University, also completed the internship experience under Keith Grigg, Nuclear Medicine supervisor at UPMC Altoona. She is the daughter of Lynn Rebar and Jason Franchock of Philipsburg.
The students will graduate from their respective universities and then sit for national board exams in the coming months.
