Application and Selection Process
In adherence to the guidelines set forth by the Society of Chairs of Academic Radiology Departments (SCARD), The University of Cincinnati Body Imaging Fellowship program will begin accepting applications on August 1, with interviews beginning November 1.
Selection of applicants will be supervised by the Program Director, with the consultation of other faculty members in the section.
Applicants are selected based on a review of submitted documentation, relative academic strength and other criteria determined by the Program Director.
Applicants must have an MD or DO degree from an accredited institution, completed an ACGME-accredited residency in diagnostic radiology and must be eligible for board certification or certified by the American Board of Radiology. Applicants must also be eligible for licensure by the State Medical Board of Ohio.
For the 2022-2023 academic year, one fellowship spot remains open (of two).
If you are interested in applying to the body imaging program, please submit the following materials to the fellowship coordinator:
- Fellowship Application (DOC)
- Current CV
- Personal statement including goals and professional plans
- Three letters of recommendation including a letter from the director of your residency program. Letters of recommendation must be dated and written within the past six months.
