No. 1 nuclear medicine residency program in the country, ranked by Doximity and U.S. News and World Report.
The Johns Hopkins Nuclear Medicine Residency Training program is an ACGME-accredited program. It provides high quality training by faculty experts in the field, prepares residents for future clinical and academic practice and qualifies trainees to sit for the American Board of Nuclear Medicine certification exam.
The length of training required depends on the resident's prior training. A three-year program is required for incoming residents whose prior training includes one year of ACGME-approved residency training. Those who have completed another non-imaging residency (e.g., internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics) can complete their nuclear medicine training in a two-year program. Those with prior training in an ACGME-approved radiology residency are required to take only a one-year program.
Many of our residents have completed a prior residency (e.g., in radiology, cardiology, neurosurgery, etc.) although some have had only one year of ACGME residency training. Many of our residents also have Ph.D.s and considerable research experience. After training, a number of our residents have gone into academia, while some go to private practice. In recent years, others have taken further advanced training, including PET/CT fellowships, T-32 NIH research grant positions or radiology residencies.
The program has a strong clinical and basic science teaching program in all areas of diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine. Our faculty includes national and world experts in various subspecialty areas of nuclear medicine and has considerable experience in teaching and research. Johns Hopkins University is recognized as one of the most prestigious and well-known medical centers in the United States. We feel that our residency is one of the strongest nuclear medicine training programs in the nation.
