Nuclear Medicine Fellowship

The nuclear medicine subspecialty offers a one-year accredited ACGME Nuclear Medicine fellowship program. Diagnostic radiology residents interested in mastering PET/CT, SPECT/CT, and all other current nuclear medicine modalities will find a wealth of clinical and research opportunities here at UCSF.

Train with experts and leaders in the field

With a diverse array of faculty mentors, including the inventors of SPECT/CT, a nuclear radiologist that has served on the FDA committee for radiopharmaceuticals, experts in PET/CT and nuclear cardiology, imaging research scientists with joint appointments and laboratories at UCSF, UC Berkeley, and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, and others recently recruited from the NIH, your time here at UCSF will prepare you for an accelerated career in molecular imaging.

Broad exposure to the latest in molecular imaging and nuclear medicine

UCSF is unique in our ability to offer world class training complete with such a broad exposure to the latest nuclear modalities, a large volume of exciting pathology, and an impressive depth of nuclear research projects and funding. The nuclear medicine physician faculty members are a desirable mix of experienced senior and promising junior faculty, all of whom are excited to teach. In fact, once residents and fellows begin training at UCSF, they often cite the faculty as the main reason they enjoy and benefit from their training time. Although world-renowned, UCSF Nuclear Medicine faculty are remarkably approachable, respectful, and genuinely concerned with ensuring our fellows receive the best training available anywhere.

Training for leadership positions

UCSF trains nuclear radiologists for leadership positions in academic medicine, as well as those who want to balance a career blending clinical and research interests. Radiology residents interested in a one year nuclear medicine fellowship are encouraged to apply early during their third year of residency, as there often is just one position available each year.
