Program details

Within nuclear medicine, residents may choose from two separate residency streams.

Two-year post-radiology program

  • Limited to residents or graduates of a Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada certified radiology residency programs.
  • Residency positions are offered annually or every second year, depending on funding.

CaRMS entry seven-year combined program in radiology and nuclear medicine

  • Suited for medical students committed to certification in both radiology and nuclear medicine from the outset of their residency training. The program results in eligibility for certification in both specialties.
  • Residency positions are not offered every year. Consult the CaRMS website or contact our program administrator directly.

Both residency streams

The core nuclear medicine program includes:

  • Formal academic half day sessions covering all topics within the basic science and clinical fields
  • On site dedicated radiopharmacy
  • On site cyclotron
  • Two PET scanners utilizing F-18 FDG as well as GA-68 Dotatate radiopharmaceuticals for imaging
  • Dedicated bone densitometry program
  • Theranostics programs for I-131 thyroid cancer and neuroendocrine tumours

Program benefits

Residents benefit from close collaboration with the sections of endocrinology and cardiology.

A continuous quality assurance project is required, supervised by faculty. Protected time is allotted for completion.

While a research project is not required, there is opportunity if the resident is interested.

All residents receive four weeks of holidays. Time may be taken as a block or dispersed throughout the year.

Residents also take a five-day block of vacation time over the winter holiday season (Christmas of New Year’s) and have five flex days off per year.
