Bethesda, Maryland


Funded: Salary, Benefits & Research

The NHLBI Fellowship Program in Cardiac/Cardiovascular Imaging, functioning within the Cardiovascular Branch of the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute, provides training for physicians interested in 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 and prepare them for careers in 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 customizes the training program to the needs of each fellow. Typically, fellows participate in the acquisition and interpretation of over 400 cardiovascular MRI and over 300 cardiovascular CT examinations during a standard 2 year fellowship. The program uses a 1.5T and a 3T Siemens MRI scanner. There are also high field small animal imaging systems (4.7T to 14T) and human high field systems (7T and soon 11.7T) at the NIH. Currently, there is access to cardiac capable CT scanners including a 320-detector row Toshiba CT scanner and a Siemens Force CT scanner. The NIH also has MicroCT scanners for research projects.

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.
