Dual DR/NM Pathway

Combined Diagnostic Radiology/Nuclear Medicine (DR/NM) Residency

This pathway is available to diagnostic radiology residents, who express interest in the combined DR/NM pathway at any point during their radiology residency.

Trainees in this pathway are fully integrated into both the diagnostic radiology and nuclear medicine programs, both of which are ACGME-accredited programs. The first three years of training are dedicated to training in diagnostic radiology, and the last year of training is focused on nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, with opportunities for translational research and electives tailored to each individual’s interests and career goals. Trainees are expected to successfully sit for both the ABR diagnostic radiology and ABNM nuclear medicine board examinations.

Residents completing the combined DR/NM pathway can choose to complete a second year of dedicated nuclear medicine training, may opt to complete an additional diagnostic radiology fellowship, or can complete their training after completion of the DR/NM pathway.
