About the Program
The Body Imaging fellowship is a one-year program available to ABR Board certified or Board eligible radiologists who have completed an accredited radiology residency. The fellowship is not accredited.
The fellowship program provides advanced training in body CT, body MRI, thoracic radiology and ultrasound.
Fellows will also be exposed to advanced vascular imaging and participate in image-guided biopsies and other procedures.
The program is well-rounded with varied experience that can serve as a solid foundation for a career in either academic medicine or private practice.
Goals and Objectives
The primary goal of the fellowship is to produce graduates with a strong clinical background in body imaging along with an area of subspecialty expertise. A secondary goal is to provide a “bridge” year between residency and practice, whether private or academic, to improve the fellow’s confidence in functioning independently.
