The Division of Nuclear Medicine at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University School of Medicine is currently accepting applications for a one-, two-, or three-year fellowship in Nuclear Medicine for the academic years 2017 or 2018.
The primary goal of this fellowship is to develop superlative nuclear medicine physicians. The secondary goal is to attract and train medical graduates with interests in research and education who are motivated to pursue careers in academic nuclear medicine.
Our program is designed to provide intensive clinical training in both adult and pediatric nuclear medicine. Fellows gradually assume increased responsibility in the clinical service while always working closely with an attending physician who reviews every case with them. Although we emphasize diagnostic imaging, extensive experience is also provided in radioiodine therapy of hyperthyroidism and additional experience is provided in cancer therapy, primarily treatment of thyroid cancer. Therapeutic use of parenteral therapy (ZEVALIN®, samarium, Xofigo® and SIR-Spheres) also is included. Special features of the training program include a nuclear cardiac imaging service, clinical PET/CT and PET/MRI facilities, and a pediatric service.
Upon successful completion of the program, candidates will be eligible for the American Board of Nuclear Medicine examination.
