Nuclear Radiology Fellowship

The Nuclear Medicine Department at Yale New Haven Hospital/Yale University School of Medicine offers training for Nuclear Medicine residents, Nuclear Radiology fellows and PET-CT fellows.

The Nuclear Radiology Fellowship is committed to training the future generation of Clinical Nuclear Radiologists, by teaching proficiency and excellence in all diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of Nuclear Medicine with a clinical flavor. The Nuclear Radiology Fellow is expected to attain the understanding and expertise required to manage all types of nuclear medicine patients.

The graduating fellow will be able to be competent in patient care by acquiring the skills required to use and administer radioactive materials. The fellow will learn to administer radionuclide as well as radioimmunotherapies, their clinical indications, the radiation exposure, complications and follow-up of patients. The fellow will also learn all new diagnostic nuclear medicine techniques, including oncologic and non-oncologic hybrid imaging, as well as nuclear cardiac imaging. This training will demonstrate the role of nuclear medicine in multimodality imaging and its benefits. The Clinical Nuclear Radiology fellow will acquire skills in clinical nuclear medicine through time spent in oncology, endocrine and radiation oncology clinics. Research time will also be allotted for completion of a project, to be submitted to a meeting or for manuscript publication.
We currently have 2 Nuclear Radiology Fellows enrolled in our program for 2013-2014.
