Emergency Imaging Fellowship

Program Director: Jessica Rotman, MD, jar9120@med.cornell.edu

The Emergency Imaging fellowship is a one year program that provides one radiologist per year with comprehensive training in the exciting, growing field of Emergency Radiology. 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. NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center ranks in the top five hospitals nationally and ranks number one in New York in the U.S. New & World Report’s annual survey of “Best Hospitals”.  

In addition to dedicated training in the emergency imaging division, fellows spend time on sub-specialty services such as neuroradiology, cardiothoracic imaging, and abdominal 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. Our department is currently a hybrid of emergency and musculoskeletal imaging, so fellows will benefit from expert musculoskeletal training as well.  

In additional to clinical education, fellows will attend departmental and interdisciplinary lectures and will be encouraged to participate in research and CME opportunities at conferences. Fellows are encouraged to attend the American Society of Emergency Radiology (ASER) annual meeting, which usually occurs in September. 

Fellows will also be actively involved in teaching residents and medical students, both formally in a didactic setting and informally during clinical rotations. Fellows will be expected to present virtually at Intergalactic case conference on a regular basis.

Fellows are allotted 20 days of vacation (which can be taken by the day or the week) and 5 days of conference time (not inclusive of weekends), with additional time allotted for interviews. A competitive salary is provided with abundant opportunities for moonlighting and extra compensation. A generous Academic Fund is provided for educational purposes and to assist with travel to conferences. Additional wellness benefits include ClassPass subscriptions and several social events that occur throughout the year, ranging from monthly happy hours to welcome and graduation receptions.
