All India Advanced Fellowship in Nuclear Oncology

under the aegis of the Association of Nuclear Medicine Physicians of India


The Association of Nuclear Medicine Physicians of India invites its members to submit an application for accreditation of their centers as a “Centre of Excellence” for conducting “An advanced Fellowship in Nuclear Oncology”.

This fellowship is being offered with the aim of imparting extensive training in the diagnostic and therapeutic use of nuclear medicine in patients with cancer. The course curriculum includes instruction in Positron Emission Tomography as well as the use of specific non FDG PET tracers for metabolic imaging of human tumors, conventional nuclear medicine with special emphasis on cancer imaging and nuclear medicine therapy. In addition, there will be an opportunity for basic instruction in oncology, onco-pathology, dosimetry, imaging physics, radiochemistry and PET guided interventional procedures.



No of Fellowship Positions: One per Centre of Excellence

Duration: 1 year extendable for a maximum period of 2 years



Eligibility Criteria:

Minimum Eligibility For Centres:

Infrastructure:

At Least One PET CT

At least one SPECT Gamma Camera

At Least one bed for inpatient High dose Nuclear Medicine Therapy
