BNMS Fellowships

NEW! BNMS Fellowships in Radionuclide Imaging and Therapy


The BNMS is in the process of developing a fellowship programe in radionuclide imaging and therapy. The ultimate aim of this fellowship is to enhance knowledge of NM multi-professional team members in at least one area of nuclear medicine and develop UK based NM network exchanging the best practice and most recent advances and research ideas in the NM community.

The fellowship will be intended primarily for members of the Society.

We would like to cordially invite nuclear medicine departments across the uk to register to host trainees doctors, scientists, technologists, radiographers and nurses should you feel you have an appropriate infrastructure and trainers in diagnostic and therapeutic nuclear medicine.
