Overview

Cleveland Clinic’s Imaging Institute is currently accepting applications for one one-year fellowship position in the Department of Nuclear Medicine, to begin July 1 of each year.

This ACGME-accredited fellowship is comprehensive, offering trainees extensive clinical experience in all aspects of clinical nuclear medicine. Our department currently performs over 20,000 imaging examinations per year, including nearly 7,000 nuclear cardiology studies. In addition to the imaging studies, we also perform sentinel lymph node localization procedures and administer radionuclide therapies including I-131, Y-90, Sr-89, radioimmunotherapies and radioembolic therapies. We are a state-of-the-art department, equipped with three PET/CT cameras, three SPECT/CT (multi-row-detector) cameras, six dual-headed SPECT cameras and a thyroid uptake probe. We have a fully functional radiopharmacy ("hot lab") staffed by two full time radiopharmacists. Also within our department, we have our own medical cyclotron and two associated laboratory facilities for the production of both commercial and investigational positron-emitting radiopharmaceuticals.

In addition to his/her primary clinical responsibilities, the Nuclear Radiology Fellow will also have academic obligations including case presentations at the biweekly departmental research conference, weekly resident didactic/case conferences, and resident board review. The fellow is strongly encouraged to participate in research projects, with protected academic time provided.

Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Nuclear Medicine is staffed by six full time dedicated nuclear medicine physicians and radiologists, most of whom are fellowship trained. Also included among our staff are two full time staff scientists, including a radiochemist and a medical physicist. The Department of Nuclear Medicine is physically located within Cleveland Clinic’s Heart Center, giving the Fellow the opportunity to also serve as an integral member of a multi-disciplinary clinical team.

Cleveland Clinic offers a competitive fellowship salary and benefits package. In accordance with the Office of Graduate Medical Education, each fellow is permitted five meeting days with appropriate compensation for CME credits. There is some call responsibility, performed by teleradiology with staff physician backup.

All applicants must have completed a United States residency training program in Diagnostic Radiology, and must be board certified or eligible by the American Board of Radiology prior to commencing the fellowship.
