The ABR has approved conditions and requirements for a redesigned pathway leading to eligibility for both primary certification in diagnostic radiology (DR) or interventional radiology (IR/DR) and subspecialty certification in nuclear radiology (NR).
Interested candidates must complete the application for DR or IR/DR certification through myABR before submitting this application.
To apply for the 16-month Pathway to Dual Certification, the ABR requires submission of two forms:
The Candidate Application Form (this form), submitted by the candidate, and
The Sponsoring Department Agreement (SDA), submitted by the candidate’s program director. Please download the SDA (see page 2) and ask the sponsoring department program director complete and submit the required information.
Fees during the DR or IR/DR residency will be the same as those for a traditional resident. A fee for the nuclear radiology subspecialty exam will be required at the time of exam application.
