Emory University is a leading research university that fosters excellence and attracts world-class talent to innovate today and prepare leaders for the future. We welcome candidates who can contribute to the diversity and excellence of our academic community.
The Division of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging of Emory University has openings for a 1-year PET combined clinical-research fellowship starting July 1, 2022. The Department of Radiology maintains an excellent academic environment with a strong commitment to research and teaching in a wide range of disciplines. The fellowship will combine clinical PET training with the potential for protected research time and an opportunity to work with novel PET radiotracers among many other clinical and research possibilities. Clinical duties may include on-call responsibilities as well as additional duties covering a nuclear medicine service at one of the teaching institutions of Emory. Radionuclide therapy procedures using non-sealed sources are part of nuclear medicine clinical responsibilities. A new purpose designed theranostic center is opening at Emory University Hospital Midtown in the summer of 2023 integrated with a multi-disciplinary GI/GU clinic. For the qualified candidate, there may be an option to create a personalized program, which could include body imaging as well as general and cardiac nuclear medicine rotations. An option for a second year of fellowship experience may also be considered at the discretion of the Fellowship Director and Division Director. There are 8 full time physicians in Nuclear Medicine. There are also 12 dedicated research faculty including 11 PhDs and 1 MD among six translational and basic science laboratories.
The equipment at the Emory University affiliated nuclear medicine departments includes state-of-the-art imaging and computer systems. Each institution has several imaging systems including SPECT and SPECT/CT and specialized computer facilities. Emory has a PET Center, including two PET/CT scanners and a PET/MR as well as PET/CTs at Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory St. Josephs Emory Johns Creek, Grady Memorial Hospital, and the VA Medical Center. Additional research instruments include dedicated research PET/CT, a micro PET/CT preclinical scanner, a multispectral in-vivo fluorescence imaging system, and a cyclotron located in a new research building. Research opportunities are available for fellows in both clinical and basic research; research is required and is tailored to the individual's long-term goals. Research facilities include state-of-the-art cyclotron and radiochemistry services, animal imaging research laboratories utilizing PET-CT and a wide variety of other resources. The Division is integrally involved in research conducted by Emory University School of Medicine faculty, including close collaboration with colleagues in Radiology, Cardiology and the Winship Cancer Institute. Currently, there are active clinical research programs involving new PET and single-photon radiotracers, therapeutics, Y-90 microsphere therapy, and many other projects involving translational medicine. Protected research time may be available depending on clinical needs and research progress, and meeting time to attend professional conferences may be available.
