Residency and Fellowship Programs
Nuclear Medicine Program Structure
The Division of Nuclear Medicine in the Department of Radiology at the VCU Medical Center offers an accredited three-year postgraduate training opportunity in nuclear medicine. The large volume of general nuclear medicine procedures – imaging, non-imaging and therapeutic – provides ample training and experience. In addition, the division's radiopharmacy and physics faculty are active in translating new radiopharmaceuticals and imaging procedures to clinical applications.
Nuclear medicine offers a full range of clinical diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and the latest imaging (SPECT and PET/CT) and computer systems which is integrated with the Department of Radiology PACS.
With more than 20,000 procedures annually, including nuclearcardiac studies, PET/CT and 150 radionuclide therapy cases per year, program graduates are fully trained in the latest procedures in nuclear medicine. Completion of this program also meets the requirements to sit for the American Board of Nuclear Medicine Exam.
