1 year fellowship, 3 abdominal MR fellowship positions per year

We have extensively remodeled our fellowship programs to help our fellows become leaders in radiology by maximizing their educational experience, exposing them to cutting-edge technology, and immersing them in a wide range of pathologies.

The abdominal imaging fellowship is composed of MR, CT, and US rotations with an emphasis on advanced MR and CT techniques.  During the blocks, the fellows will learn advanced body imaging including prostate, vascular, fetal, and transplantation imaging. A formal, dedicated weekly conference exposes fellows to experts in body imaging as well as other fields. A daily informal teaching program reviews and discusses the interesting cases of the day. The fellows are active participants in and eventually lead a wide-range of interdisciplinary conferences.

Electives are flexible and tailored to match the interests of the fellow. Currently, we have electives available in neuroradiology, pediatric radiology, interventional radiology, mammography, nuclear medicine, cardiac imaging, and thoracic imaging.

We also highly encourage our fellows to engage in academic projects throughout the year, ideally culminating into a publication and presentation at a national meeting. Fellows are given weekly academic time to allow them to accomplish their goals.  Upon completion of this fellowship, fellows will be ready for either an academic or private practice position.
