The Section of Nuclear Medicine of the Department of Radiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine offers an ACGME-accredited one-year fellowship program in nuclear radiology. The training program includes classroom time, training and experience in nuclear medicine, nuclear cardiology, positron emission tomography (PET/CT), as well as in theranostics (therapy plus diagnostics).
The fellowship is designed to provide the trainees an in-depth experience in all areas of clinical nuclear medicine, both diagnostic and therapeutic. The fellow is taught the basic principles upon which the field of nuclear medicine is founded, including:
- Radiation physics
- Health physics
Successful completion of the training program and its requirements also earns the fellow a certificate in Nuclear Theranostics.
