Body+ Imaging Fellowships

Today’s radiology leaders require skills beyond interpretive excellence. Our unique imaging fellowships provide a contemporary, flexible, exciting and well-remunerated experience for fellows in a US News & World Report Honor Roll hospital located on the upper east side of Manhattan.

Each fellowship allows up to one day per week for additional focus on areas of interest to the individual fellow. Areas of focus are highly flexible and may include additional imaging training (i.e. MSK, ED, body interventions), time on non-imaging clinical services (e.g. pertinent surgical or medicine subspecialty practices) or a non-clinical area such as informatics, research, humanities in medicine, or quality improvement initiatives. 

Interviews for Body+ Fellowships with a Breast Imaging component starting July 1, 2018 will occur in the Spring of 2017.

Emergency Imaging

Program Director: Dr. Kevin Mennitt, kem9003@med.cornell.edu

  • This fellowship offers training in the growing field of Emergency Imaging. NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center is a level I trauma center with an extremely busy urgent care center and provides emergency services to one of the most densely populated areas of New York City in addition to teleradiology services for affiliated emergency departments. In addition to dedicated training in the emergency imaging division, fellows spend time on sub-specialty services such as neuroradiology, musculoskeletal, cardiovascular, body MRI, and body/thoracic imaging in order to obtain the level of expertise required to practice in the emergency department setting. There is flexibility in the amount of time spent on each of these rotations to fit with the needs and interests of our fellows.
