Molecular Imaging Fellowship

Our program offers a collaborative team approach in which fellows work alongside radiologists and nuclear medicine physicians on the medical staff.

The Molecular Imaging Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center, part of Baylor Scott & White Health, is a one-year, Texas Medical Board-accredited program.

Our program provides exposure to a wide range of pathology, experience in all aspects of nuclear medicine and advanced oncologic imaging.

We accept one radiology fellow per year.


Below is the indicated number of months that fellows spend in each rotation during the 12 months of fellowship training.

  • PET-CT – 20 weeks
  • Nuclear Medicine – 12 weeks
  • Molecular Oncology – 2 weeks
  • Molecular Pathology – 2 weeks
  • Research – 4 weeks
  • Electives – 8 weeks
  • National Holidays/Vacation – 4 weeks

Total: 52 weeks

Fellows are expected to be available to see patients by 7:30 a.m. each morning. Fellows usually leave the department by 5 p.m., and it is a priority they have sufficient study time for independent reading in the evenings.

The program director ensures rotation responsibilities do not detract from a fellow’s overall educational experience

Call Schedule

Fellows are required to work and take call one full weekend (Saturday and Sunday) per calendar month.

In addition to the daily teaching performed while interpreting examinations, performing procedures and providing consultation to clinicians, daily educational conferences are offered.

Fellows are welcome to participate in as many of these conferences as they would like. Fellows are only required to attend lectures that are applicable to molecular imaging, such as nuclear medicine and PET lectures.

Most conferences are taught by faculty, but radiology fellows and upper-level residents occasionally provide instruction.

All fellows are excused daily from their clinical responsibilities from noon to 1 p.m. to participate in the daily noon conference – a valuable form of radiology.

Multidisciplinary Conferences

Fellows participate in a multitude of oncology multidisciplinary conferences where input from multiple subspecialties determines the optimal course of therapies for the patient.

Topics include:

  • Bone and soft tissue tumors
  • Breast tumors
  • Chest tumors
  • Gastrointestinal tumors
  • Head and neck oncology
  • Molecular oncology

Fellows will attend a molecular oncology conference every month and will occasionally rotate through the other tumor conferences.

Visiting Professorships

Both the annual Baldwin Lectureship series and the annual Sears Seminar Lecture Series bring in nationally acclaimed radiologists as guest speakers. Fellows are encouraged to attend these lectures.

Each fellow completes at least one scholarly activity or one Quality Improvement (QI) project under staff supervision during the fellowship.

A trainee research fund provides fellows financial support to perform and present clinical research.

If a fellow's research project is accepted for presentation at a major radiology or molecular imaging meeting, the research fund will cover reasonable expenses and time to attend will be granted after coordination with and approval by the program director.

Each fellow may attend only one meeting presentation for any one research project.
