Short-listed candidates will be invited for a personal interview. Interviews will be conducted via videoconference with a selection committee.

Selection Criteria

UBC nuclear medicine does not currently participate in the CaRMS match, preferring candidates who are currently enrolled in, or have finished a Royal College Specialty relevant to nuclear medicine. Residents who have completed training in diagnostic radiology require a further 2 years of nuclear medicine training. Residents who have completed training in other relevant specialties require 3.5 years of training (3 years of nuclear medicine and 6 months of cross sectional diagnostic radiology).
