About the Program

The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Department of Radiology, has one fellowship position in Nuclear Oncology open for 2024-2025. This 1-year non-accredited program offers a multidisciplinary experience that bridges theranostics and multiple clinical oncology disciplines. The fellow will work with experienced nuclear medicine faculty, radiopharmacists, and physicist to enhance understanding of therapies (established and investigational), dosimetry (for safety and/or treatment optimization), imaging (NM and PET), and tumor board discussions. Leaners benefit from the high-volume and large diversity of cases referred to our tertiary care center. We have an active dosimetry program, a cyclotron, and radiochemistry facilities. Some general nuclear medicine and light call are included. A large portion of the year will be in rotations outside the department to enhance the fellow's understanding of the other cancer care disciplines such as radiation oncology; surgical, medical, and pediatric oncology; and neuroendocrine endocrinology.  Our faculty, fellows and residents come from all over the U.S. and countries outside, making the Iowa experience diverse and welcoming. The University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics is among the best in the nation, as measured by the quality of its programs, clinical faculty, and state-of-the-art facilities.

Iowa City is a unique location in the Midwest and is North America's only UNESCO City of Literature! No traffics jams—and we're happy about it! We are centrally located between Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Omaha - all just a 4-5 hour drive away. There's plenty to do and much more than corn fields: Hiking, biking, kayaking, sports events, wineries and craft breweries, music and art festivals, plays and Broadway shows, art-house/indie cinema, farmers markets, farm-to-table venues, and the list goes on!
