Nuclear Medicine Residency

The Nuclear Medicine Division at the University of Washington was established in 1962 and has had a postdoctoral training program since its inception. It is part of the Department of Radiology within the School of Medicine.

The current one-, two- or three-year residency program is designed in compliance with, and is approved by, the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education. This program provides a balanced and in-depth experience in all aspects of the basic science and clinical training of nuclear medicine. The program is approved for six (6) full time residents. Applicants may be board eligible in another specialty, or have completed at least one or two years in other specialty training. The one-year program is available for diagnostic radiologists who wish to pursue special competence in Nuclear Radiology from the American Board of Radiology (ABR) or receive American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) Certification.

Joint arrangements with other departments for coordinated training may be available.
