Nuclear Medicine Residency

The Division of Nuclear Medicine at Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology has an active nuclear medicine training program approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Three to five trainees per year are accepted for a one-, two-, or three-year program depending on prior experience.

Training is designed to prepare residents for certification in nuclear medicine by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM). A diagnostic radiologist who is American Board of Radiology certified or board-eligible will be able to sit for the ABNM examination after completion of one year of nuclear medicine training. Individuals who have completed training in another specialty or who have completed radiology or nuclear medicine training in another country typically will be eligible for ABNM examination after two years of nuclear medicine training. Those without prior radiology experience will spend three years following a clinical internship completed before beginning nuclear medicine training.

Trainees in the nuclear medicine residency program are exposed to the full range of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine procedures through extensive clinical and didactic training, as well as opportunities for study and research.

Annual Stipends
The stipend is determined by the number of years of prior training, but will not exceed the PGY-6 stipend for the first year of training in nuclear medicine/nuclear radiology.

Liability Insurance
Professional liability insurance is provided for claims arising from services performed while acting in capacity of House Officer.

License Requirement
A Missouri State license to practice medicine (either permanent or temporary) is mandatory before beginning training. The application fee for a temporary license fee is paid by Barnes-Jewish Hospital.

Medical and Dental Coverage
Health care benefits and dental coverage are provided.

Residents receive three weeks of vacation per academic year (July 1 through June 30).
