IR Training Pathways

 

Nuclear Radiology Subspecialty Certification - Subspecialty Certification Pathway available to PGY-5 residents. Details can be found below, or download HERE.

 

Pathway to Subspecialty Certification in Nuclear Radiology

Requirements:

Eight additional months of nuclear medicine during residency training (up to two months of experience in nuclear radiology during the PGY-1 clinical year may be counted if completed at an institution with an ACGME accredited diagnostic radiology residency program). This is in addition to the four months of nuclear medicine required of every resident in diagnostic radiology.

Research Project:

Residents on this pathaway are required to be involved in at least one nuclear medicine related research project, case report, or poster presentation during their training.

QI:

Resident is required to attend departmental QI meetings when on service.

Lectures:

Resident is required to present one nuclear medicine related lecture, case conference, or research article to the other residents or to medical students.

Interdisciplinary Conferences:

Residents on this pathway are must present at the interdisciplinary tumor board conferences during their 3rd and 4th year.

Nuclear Physics:

Attend 120 hours of nuclear physics lectures. Resident should keep a log of the lectures including date, location, and name of lecturer. Core physics lectures can be counted twice towards the total number of hours. Additional hours could be obtained through other sources such as RSNA physics lectures, HUDA course, and additional didactic lecture hours could be provided if needed.

One week at a local radiopharmaceutical company could potentially be coordinated upon resident request.

Nuclear Technologist Shadowing:

One month shadowing the nuclear medicine technologists.

Procedure Log:

I-131 treatments below 33 mCi (10)

I-131 treatments above 33 mCi (10)

Non I-131 beta emitter therapies: SIR-spheres (5), TheraSpheres (5), Xofigo/Samarium treatments (5)
