The Nuclear Medicine Division at the Department of Radiology at UHCMC/Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland has an unexpected opening for a nuclear radiology fellowship position either within a one-year ACGME (Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education) approved program for a radiologist or a one-year non-ACGME position for a current nuclear medicine physician.
We provide a full spectrum of diagnostic imaging with state-of-the-art equipment, including 5 PET/CT scanners, digital PET/CT, a PET/MR scanner as well as the latest Discovery NM/CT 870 DR and the 670 CZT digital SPECT/CT system. We offer comprehensive radionuclide diagnostic procedures and therapies including I-131, Ra-223 Xofigo, Y-90 Zevalin, Y-90 microspheres and Lu-177 Dotatate. The majority of nuclear medicine studies across the University Hospitals Health system are interpreted at the main Campus in Cleveland. The department is committed to excellence in imaged-based clinical care.
The fellowship program includes training in general nuclear medicine, pediatric nuclear medicine, nuclear cardiology and positron emission tomography (PET). It also teaches the safe handling and use of unsealed radioactive drugs for medical purposes and involves quality control and quality assurance training as well as regular journal clubs. Trainee responsibilities increase progressively, from close supervision during the first 6 months of training to greater responsibility later on.
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. The Nuclear Radiology program meets all training requirements recommended by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine.
