The Nuclear Medicine Division at the Case Western Reserve University/University Hospital of Cleveland offers excellent fellowship training. Our faculty come from prestigious institutions located within the United States, as well as countries around the world. We are dedicated to providing our trainees with high qualities of education and experience. Through our program, we help graduates prepare for and attain distinguished careers in both academics and private settings.

Currently, we are looking to fill two nuclear radiology fellowship positions within a one-year ACME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) approved program. We provide a full spectrum of diagnostic imaging with state-of-the-art equipment, including 6 PET/CT scanners, digital PET/CT, a PET/MR scanner, as well as the latest Discovery NM/CT 870 and a digital CZT SPECT/CT system. Our educational program and clinical rotations involve all aspects of Nuclear Medicine including general nuclear medicine, pediatric nuclear medicine, nuclear cardiology and positron emission tomography (PET). We also offer training in comprehensive radionuclide diagnostic procedures and therapies, including I-131, Ra-223 Xofigo, Y-90 Zevalin, Y-90 microspheres, Lu-177 Dotatate and Lu-177 PSMA. The majority of nuclear medicine studies across the University Hospitals Healthcare System are surveyed and interpreted at the main campus here in Cleveland. The department is committed to excellence in image-based clinical care.

Our fellowship training will also teach trainees how to safely handle unsealed radioactive drugs for medical purposes and help familiarize trainees with practices in quality control, quality assurance, radiopharmaceutical chemistry, imaging quantification, and dosimetry.

UHCMC has access to a cyclotron and is operating a new human-use PET radiopharmacy for the development of new molecular imaging agents. There are plenty of research opportunities in the use of experimental PET radiopharmaceuticals together with either PET/CT or PET/MR. We currently have an IND from the FDA for F-18 fluorothymidine (FLT) and Ga-68 PSMA to explore early cancer therapy response assessment. We also have journal clubs periodically and review recent articles which help to stay current on new and emerging work in the field of nuclear medicine.

Our Nuclear Radiology fellowship program meets all training requirements recommended by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine and our goal is to train the next generation of leaders in academic and clinical Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging.
