The Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO is currently accepting applications for our ACGME-accredited Nuclear Medicine Residency Program for July 1, 2019, for applicants seeking a one-, two-, or three-year of residency/fellowship training in nuclear medicine.
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 (Lutathera®, 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. Residents are encouraged to participate in original research under faculty supervision.
Upon successful completion of the program, candidates will be eligible for the American Board of Nuclear Medicine examination.
Most successful applicants for this nuclear medicine residency have completed training in radiology or another clinical specialty. Applicants without training in another specialty should have considerable research experience.
Successful completion of USMLE Steps 1, 2 and 3 is required.
