There are opportunities to participate in pediatric radionuclide therapies, including I-131, I-131 MIBG, and Lu-177 Dotatate treatments.

Duties and Responsibilities

Fellows participate in a variety of multidisciplinary tumor boards/conferences, including Head/Neck Tumor Board, Thoracic Oncology Tumor Board, Malignant Hematology Tumor Board, Epilepsy Surgical Conference, and Endocrine Conference.

Fellows will have one-half day a week free from clinical duties for scholarly activities.

Fellows are expected to participate in a research project in conjunction with attending staff. Projects should be designed to result in an abstract for poster presentation or manuscript. Funds to present at national meetings will be provided.


Involvement in a research project is required during the fellowship.

Fellows will work with the program director to identify a topic and mentor during the first quarter of the fellowship. This endeavor may include, but is not limited to, submitting a journal article for publication, development of an educational exhibit or poster for the annual Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging meeting, or participating in a clinical research project.
