Professional Development and Education Fund (PDEF)

Supporting the advancement of molecular and nuclear medicine technologists through professional development that promotes clinical excellence and optimal patient outcomes.

Professional Development and Education Fund

The Professional Development and Education Fund (PDEF) was created in 2001 by the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technologist Section (SNMMI-TS) to provide a forum in which corporate entities could contribute financial support to technologist related programs and activities.

Over the past eleven years, the PDEF has evolved and grown into a strong fundraising arm for the SNMMI-TS.
