Dual Certification in DR and Nuclear Radiology

16-Month Pathway to Dual Certification in Diagnostic Radiology and Nuclear Radiology

A resident who has a total of 16 months of experience in nuclear radiology or nuclear medicine during the 48-month diagnostic radiology residency may quality for the ABR’s subspecialty certificate in nuclear radiology.

Approved candidates follow the same exam schedule as candidates for the standard pathway in diagnostic radiology and a subspecialization in nuclear radiology.

Diagnostic Radiology residents should declare their interest in pursuing the 16-month pathway leading to specialty certification in Diagnostic Radiology and subspecialty certification in Nuclear Radiology by the end of their R2 year. Only one resident per year may enter this pathway, which does not extend the length of residency.
