Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship
University of Washington Medical Center
Goals and Objectives for Training:
The purpose of our fellowship program is to train radiologists in the subspecialties of cardiac and thoracic/pulmonary imaging for practice in academic and community settings. The fellows will be provided advanced training in radiography, CT, and MRI through faculty directed and self-directed study and participation in multidisciplinary conferences. Fellows will learn how to manage a high-volume cardiothoracic imaging practice, including urgent studies, imaging consults, and managing contrast reactions all under the supervision of faculty. Time spent in covering cardiac imaging and covering pulmonary/thoracic imaging will be split 50/50.
The fellows are responsible for interpretation of radiography, CT, and MRI performed from three award winning institutions, the University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, and the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Fellows have the opportunity to view the exams and formulate clinical impressions prior to review with the attending radiologist. This allows the fellow to test his or her knowledge independently. During case reviews, the attending radiologist provides feedback and may suggest further resources and reading to advance the fellow’s knowledge. Our faculty provide daily didactic teaching sessions and interesting case conferences.
We do not have any open fellowship positions for 2014-2015 and 2015-2016. We will accept fellowship applications for 2016-2017 starting June 1, 2014.
