The clinical service in Nuclear Medicine is divided into five subsections: outpatient general Nuclear Medicine, in-patient general Nuclear Medicine, PET, Pediatric, and Cardiac Nuclear Medicine. The recommended schedule will be to spend week 1 and 3 on the North Campus, where the emphasis will be on outpatient general and Pediatric Nuclear Medicine with some focused time spent in the PET reading room. Week 2 will be split between the in-patient general Nuclear Medicine and Cardiac services. Week 4 schedule will be determined after a preferences discussion with the student.

The clinical service in Nuclear Medicine (NM) is divided into five sections: outpatient general NM, inpatient general NM, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Pediatric NM studies, NM Cardiac studies, and radionuclide therapy. The recommended schedule will be to spend weeks 1 and 3 in the Center for Advanced Medicine/BJH North Campus (second floor), where the emphasis will be on outpatient general and pediatric Nuclear Medicine with some time spent in the PET reading room. Week 2 will be in South Campus (West Pavilion 9th floor) and split between inpatient general nuclear medicine, outside PET facilities (morning), cardiac NM services (afternoon), and radionuclide therapy. The schedule for Week 4 will be Monday to Wednesday Center for Advanced Medicine/BJH North Campus and Thursday to Friday in South Campus. This rotation's primary objective is to provide exposure to the full range of clinical nuclear medicine studies. Under the direct supervision of the NM attendings, the student via ZOOM will participate in the planning and interpreting of imaging studies for patients referred to the Division. An opportunity also exists to explore instrumentation techniques, including dedicated computer applications utilized to interpret NM studies. In addition to the clinical experience, the student will attend the NM daily morning conference, held via ZOOM, from 8-9:00 a.m. Also, the student will be excused to attend via ZOOM the daily diagnostic radiology resident noon conference from 12-1:00 p.m. The student will also be able to attend any conferences within the Department of Radiology and case management conferences where NM studies are discussed. The student has to participate by preparing a case for the Friday follow-up conference under an NM faculty member's supervision during the last week of their rotation. The student can find the PowerPoint template to use and examples of prior follow-up cases using the below link; M:\Services\Nuclear Medicine\Nuclear Medicine Follow-Up Conferences Links to an external site. Students may keep a log of interesting cases to use as a guide for additional reading or discussions with the Course Director or other NM attendings. Educational material including textbooks and digital teaching file cases are available at the following url: http://gamma.wustl.edu/index2.htmlLinks to an external site. The first and final days of the elective are mandatory. No honors will be awarded if a student is absent for more than five days of the rotation. Please introduce yourself to Dr. Ponisio, Nuclear Medicine residency program director, and Ms. Bre Vittitow, Nuclear Medicine program coordinator, on the first day of your 4-week NM rotation.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
