The Nuclear Medicine (NM) division of the Department of Radiology at Mayo Clinic Arizona  is seeking a full-time nuclear radiologist to join a rapidly growing sub-specialized practice. 

Candidates need to be proficient in all types of nuclear imaging studies (except pediatric NM) and radiotherapy procedures. The division supervises and interprets a wide variety of general NM studies, oncological and non-oncological PET/CT and PET/MR, brain PET/CT and PET/MR as well as cardiac PET/CT and SPECT. Nuclear cardiology studies are interpreted in conjunction with a board-certified nuclear cardiologist and cardiology fellows, who supervise the studies. The practice has a fast-growing and high volume theranostics clinic with multiple patients a week referred for Pluvicto, Lutathera, Xofigo, Liver Y-90, and Iodine -131 therapies. 

The ideal candidate will have at 2-3 years of post-training experience and a proven record of excellence in clinical practice, education, and research.  Academic appointments (assistant professor, associate professor, or professor) will be determined based on Mayo Clinic’s academic appointment guidelines.  The new colleague will enjoy a NM practice that prioritizes clinical care, while offering exciting research and educational opportunities. 

The NM division is currently staffed by 4 full time double boarded (ABR and ABNM) nuclear radiologists as well as several collaborating nuclear cardiologists.  The division has presence in both the Phoenix and Scottsdale campuses and has state of the art equipment which includes: 2 PET/CT scanners, a 3T PET/MR scanner, 5 SPECT/CT scanners, 2 cardiac DSPECT scanners, 1 molecular breast imaging camera, uptake probes and 3 hot labs. An expected hospital expansion will house a new theranostics center with multiple therapy rooms, a hot lab, reading rooms, as well as a SPECT/CT.  In addition, Mayo Clinic Arizona has an onsite cyclotron staffed by PhD radiochemists which produces radiopharmaceuticals for clinical and research purposes. 

The NM division staff participates in multiple multidisciplinary conferences and works very closely with clinical colleagues, in particular oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, cardiologists, and urologists. 

An ACGME - accredited 1-year nuclear radiology fellowship was recently approved, and the position has been filled beginning in the summer of 2024. Our radiology residency program is top ranked in the nation and currently has a total of 18 residents. In addition, Mayo Clinic Arizona has multiple other imaging fellows that electively rotate in NM during their training. There is frequent interaction with Mayo Clinic medical school students and innumerable teaching and mentoring opportunities.

Certifications and Licensure:

The candidate must be board certified by the American Board of Radiology (ABR) and have additional nuclear imaging training, either board certification by the American Board of Nuclear Medicine (ABNM) or 1-year nuclear radiology fellowship.  An Arizona medical license will be required to obtain.
