Overview

The Nuclear Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, provides dedicated additional one year in training to diagnostic radiology residency graduates, facilitating eligibility for additional subspecialty board certification in nuclear medicine.

The program’s vision is to facilitate the optimal environment for trainees to become well-rounded nuclear medicine practitioners. We do so by fostering intra- and interdepartmental consultations, consistent faculty support and graduated responsibility, as well as giving both research and education opportunities in addition to training in clinical care.

The one-year fellowship is organized in 13 blocks of four weeks each, and focuses on training in:

  • Diagnostic general nuclear medicine
  • Radionuclide therapy
  • Positron emission tomography
  • Nuclear cardiology
  • Radiation safety

Through elective time, the fellowship provides for additional training in one of these clinical areas, by focusing on a modality, e.g. PET-MR applications, or spending time in radiation oncology, etc. There is also ample opportunity for research pursuits.

Accreditation

The program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

Certification

After successfully completing the program, the graduating fellow will be eligible to take the subspecialty examination in nuclear radiology leading to certificate of added qualification offered by the American Board of Radiology, as well as the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) certification exam.

Program history

The Nuclear Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic's campus in Jacksonville, Florida, joins the already established diagnostic radiology residency and several fellowships. We expect one fellow per year to complete the program.
