CARDIOthoracic imaging fellowship

University of South Florida, Dept. of Radiology
Tampa, Florida
The University of South Florida Department of Radiology (Tampa, FL) offers a 1-year Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship. We are currently accepting applications for July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018.    

The Cardiothoracic Imaging fellowship focuses on establishing clinical expertise in advanced cardiovascular and pulmonary imaging. To achieve this objective, the Program provides fellows with exposure to cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR), cardiac computed tomography angiography (CTA), nuclear cardiology, echocardiography, and pulmonary imaging.    

During this 1-year fellowship program, the fellow will learn how to acquire and to interpret computed tomography, magnetic resonance, nuclear and echocardiographic examinations of the heart and chest. The fellow will learn the appropriateness criteria for each cardiac imaging modality and serve as an advisor to referring clinicians on appropriate imaging modalities based on patient pathology. The fellow will formulate appropriate differential diagnoses and management recommendations for various thoracic pathologies, with emphasis on the heart, coronary arteries, lungs, mediastinum, pleura, and chest wall. The fellow will also learn how to start and effectively run a lung cancer screening program. Fellows will obtain the highest level of certification in cardiac CT and MRI based on the American College of Radiology and Cardiology COCATS training guidelines.    

Participation in interventional procedures such as transthoracic needle biopsy and percutaneous catheter drainage of intrathoracic fluid collections is expected. Fellows will participate in interdepartmental conferences including cardiac transplant, heart failure, pulmonary, and pulmonary transplant. These conferences enhance knowledge of the various clinical problems faced by clinicians, and form a basis for helping to guide imaging workup of such problems. The fellow will also have an active role in radiology resident education.   

The following items are required for a completed application:

  •  US Citizen or Permanent Resident
  •  Completion of a residency in Diagnostic Radiology prior to start date  
  • Common Fellowship Application    
  • Current CV    
  • Letters of Recommendation     

You may send applications and supporting documents by email to our Fellowship Coordinator, Tracy Colley, at tcolley@health.usf.edu

ADVANCED cardiovascular imaging fellowship

NIH / National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute
Bethesda, Maryland

Funded: salary
The NHLBI Fellowship Program in Cardiac/Cardiovascular Imaging, functioning within the Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Branch of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, provides training for physicians interested in research-oriented academic careers in the field of non-invasive cardiovascular imaging.

The Program consists of one to three years of clinical and research training in cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging, cardiovascular computed tomography, echocardiography, and nuclear cardiology. The goal of the Program is to develop experts in clinical cardiovascular MRI and cardiovascular CT, who are able to conduct clinical or translational research in advanced cardiovascular imaging. Initial training focuses on establishing clinical competence in cardiovascular MRI and cardiovascular CT. To achieve this objective, the Program provides fellows with broad exposure to the subspecialty.

Typically, fellows participate in the acquisition and interpretation of over 400 cardiovascular MRI and over 400 cardiovascular CT examinations during a standard 2 year fellowship. State of the art scanners are available to support the clinical research and training program. The NHLBI runs 4 cardiovascular MRI scanners and there is potential access to additional MRI equipment, including high field small animal imaging systems (4.7T to 14T) and human high field systems (3T, 7T and soon 11.7T). Currently, there is access to cardiac capable CT scanners from all 4 major vendors, including a 320-detector row CT scanner.

cardiovascular diagnostics FELLOWSHIP

The Ohio State University
Columbus, Ohio

The Cardiovascular Diagnostic Imaging fellowship consists of 12-24 months training conducted at the Ohio State University Medical Center and includes hands-on supervised clinical training, research, formal didactics, and interdisciplinary conferences. The training available to general cardiovascular medicine fellows in these areas provides a foundation for the additional training necessary to achieve level III competency. The significant volume of clinical studies and research opportunities afford adequate learning opportunities for both general and subspecialty trainees.

Clinical Training.The allocation of months requires a minimum of 12 months for CMR/CT, 12 months for echocardiography, and/or 12 months for nuclear cardiology, and can be tailored to each trainee's career objectives. Documented completion of level II training in any of these areas during prior training, such as an ACGME-accredited program in cardiovascular medicine, may be counted toward these requirements. The trainee will be expected to interact with patients directly with appropriate supervision including eliciting clinical histories, applying physical examination skills, and reviewing existing data relevant to each procedure throughout the period of training. In addition to gaining the relevant knowledge of physics and instrumentation for each modality, fellows will learn to independently perform examinations and interpret the results.

Research Training.All fellows will participate in at least 1 research project during their fellowship and will be expected to complete the necessary educational sessions prior to onset of human subjects or animal research. Such sessions are offered through the OSU Office of Responsible Research Practices throughout the year. Additional coursework in research including biostatistics and clinical trial design are also available, in addition to weekly and quarterly didactics. Fellows will be expected to prepare grant applications, submit abstracts for presentation at national/international meetings, and compose manuscripts for submission to refereed journals.

Didactics are held at least once monthly and include the following topics: physics, instrumentation, safety, acquisition protocols, post processing, indications, contraindications, coding, and compliance. Fellows will also be able to attend on-site educational seminars relevant to the areas of training, such as the 5-day CMR/CT course held twice yearly. Fellows will also conduct conferences to demonstrate their understanding of new skills and knowledge and assist in training of general cardiovascular medicine fellows. They will also attend core conferences in cardiovascular medicine.

Interdisciplinary Conferences.Quarterly conferences are held with the general cardiovascular medicine fellows and consist of case presentations as well as didactic material. Over the course of one year, cases presented at this and other interdisciplinary conferences will be selected to represent all forms of cardiovascular diseases including ischemic heart disease, coronary artery disease, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease, arrhythmias, cardiomyopathies, and pericardial disease.

Eligibility and Selection:All applicants will be required to have successfully completed an ACGME-certified postdoctoral training program. Level II competency in at least one area of cardiovascular imaging is required; as such, any physician who is board-certified or board-eligible in cardiovascular medicine is eligible. Licensure to practice medicine in the State of Ohio is also required. All applications will be reviewed by a committee composed of faculty involved in cardiovascular imaging and selected by faculty from the core program. Fellows will be selected based upon their academic credentials, past performances, and potential for academic careers.

Accreditation:Currently, there is no ACGME accreditation for cardiovascular imaging, although ACC/AHA Clinical Competence Statements have been published for each area of training. These Statements form the core of the curriculum, insuring completion at standards for training that will likely be included in future accreditation requirements.
