Internal Medicine / Nuclear Medicine Policy Overview
The American Board of Internal Medicine and the American Board of Nuclear Medicine offer a training pathway for candidates who have completed four years of combined accredited training in internal medicine and nuclear medicine leading to admissibility to certification in both specialties. To meet eligibility for dual certification, the resident must satisfactorily complete 48 months of combined training that is verified by the directors of both training programs. It is strongly recommended that combined training occur in the same institution. Residents will be eligible for admission to the written certifying examination in internal medicine after successfully completing the R-3 year of training and for the nuclear medicine examination after the R-4 year.
