Department of Radiology - Nuclear Medicine Residency Program

Nuclear Medicine Program

The Saint Louis University Nuclear Medicine program was established in the early 1970s and was accredited in April 1974. The program is designed to provide clinical experience and didactic instruction in all phases of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine to prepare qualified physicians for the full-time practice of nuclear medicine. The opportunity also exists, and is strongly encouraged, to perform clinical and basic research during the three-year residency.

The division provides a diversity of clinical experiences over a full spectrum of adult patients at Saint Louis University Medical Center and John Cochran VA Hospital as well as a pediatric population from Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital. Individualization of training is achieved by special rotations through Radiology and different sections of Nuclear Medicine to gain additional skills and ensure a balanced training experience. A graded increase in resident responsibility occurs over the three-year training period.

Saint Louis University School of Medicine, Department of Radiology, Division of Nuclear Medicine offers a three-year ACGME approved residency and a one-year non-ACGME PET/CT fellowship.

Applicants for the residency program must have completed a minimum of one year post-graduate training in an ACGME approved residency program. This training is commonly in medicine, pathology, or radiology but not necessarily limited to these specialties. The candidate may also be board certified or board eligible in any of these disciplines. Upon successful completion of the three-year Nuclear Medicine program a resident is eligible to sit for the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) certifying exam.

The PET/CT fellowship is open to applicants who have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited Nuclear Medicine program. It does not qualify one for further board certification. Applications for the PET/CT fellowship will be accepted during the second year of nuclear medicine residency.

We do not currently use ERAS or go through the NRMP match.  Applications are accepted by completing a universal application form which can be found at the website NRMP Universal Application in PDF by December 31. 
Please contact the program coordinator, Janet Knopp, for any additional information.

You must provide your CV and at least three current letters of recommendation. Please be sure to include your email address on the first page of the application.
