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. 

Emergency Radiology Fellowship
Program Director: Jessica Rotman

This one year non-ACGME fellowship offers training in the growing field of emergency imaging, focusing on both traumatic and non-traumatic emergency conditions. 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, as well as teleradiology services for affiliated emergency departments.

This fellowship program also focuses extensively on musculoskeletal MRI imaging; the fellow will read a variety of inpatient, emergency, and outpatient musculoskeletal MRI cases with dedicated musculoskeletal/emergency imaging attending radiologists in our ED department. Fellows can choose to participate in ultrasound and fluoroscopic-guided procedures.

In addition to dedicated emergency and musculoskeletal training, fellows can choose to spend time on sub-specialty services such as neuroradiology, cardiovascular, 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.

Depending on the learning focus and future career goals of the Emergency Radiology fellows, daytime and evening shifts are available, with flexible daily and weekly scheduling. There are bimonthly fellow teaching conferences as well as many opportunities for fellows to participate in research as well as medical student and resident education. An academic fund is offered for fellows who wish to attend emergency or musculoskeletal imaging conferences.

Applications are rolling, with the final deadline for the July 2021 – June 2022 for the Emergency Imaging fellowship on September 30, 2019. Interviews will be held throughout the fall. Please see our Body+ Imaging Fellowship page for more information.

We look forward to receiving your application!

Body Imaging (CT, US, MRI)

Program Director: Dr. Natasha Wehrli

  • The Body Imaging fellowship is a 1 year, non-ACGME accredited program with 2-3 open positions per academic year. This program offers advanced training in abdominal and pelvic imaging with an emphasis on body MRI.  Fellows are exposed to clinical experience in inpatient, emergency, and ambulatory care settings.  Multidisciplinary collaboration with non-radiology colleagues is offered through numerous conferences and tumor boards, including but not limited to Urology, Gynecological Oncology, Colorectal Cancer, Liver Transplant, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, Pelvic Floor, Esophagus, and Pancreas.  Exposure to the latest state of the art technology provides the opportunity for our fellows to develop expertise in advanced MR techniques, PET-CT, and PET-MRI.  The curriculum includes a weekly dedicated fellow lecture, a monthly Interesting Case Conference, a quarterly Journal Club, and a quarterly Prostate Rad/Path conference.  Fellows have the opportunity to provide clinical lectures to ultrasound technologists, medical students, and radiology residents.  Daily and weekend moonlighting opportunities are available for extra compensation.  Each fellow receives 8 weeks of elective time to explore other subspecialties and/or research.  In the second half of the academic year, additional dedicated academic time is available to fellows who express an interest in clinical research. 
  • For the 2021-2022 academic year, we will be offering one additional training position for a combined Body + Cardiothoracic Imaging fellow, with half of the academic year dedicated to Abdominopelvic imaging and half of the academic year dedicated to Cardiothoracic imaging. If you are interested in this position, please specify this in your application materials.

Breast Imaging

Program Director: Dr. Janine Katzen
NRMP Program Code: 1492R02F0

  • This fellowship offers advanced training in breast imaging in our state of the art women's imaging center and hospital based practice. Fellows develop expertise in all modalities (mammography including tomosynthesis, ultrasound, MRI) required to provide the complete spectrum of care including screening, diagnostic imaging, image-guided interventions, and image-guided localizations. Fellows are exposed to high volumes of examinations and procedures and have the opportunity to not only collaborate but to lead multidisciplinary conferences with breast surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors, and pathologists.
  • Fellowship experience is supplemented by a dedicated weekly breast fellow lecture series at the beginning of each year which runs for over three months and includes lectures from Surgery, Radiation Oncology and Pathology faculty. In addition, a bimonthly journal club, interesting case conference, bimonthly radiology/pathology conference, and controversial topic debates round off the academic experience.
  • Many research opportunities are available to the fellows as our division participates in both multidisciplinary clinical research as well as dedicated breast imaging research with investigation of novel imaging modalities such as PET/MRI and tomosynthesis. Fellows are encouraged but not required to complete at least one project during their fellowship and are offered mentorship to help navigate their chosen topics. A list of available research projects is distributed to the fellows at the beginning of each year.

The fellowship is designed with the potential to spend up to 40 weeks in breast imaging, with flexibility based on each fellow’s interest.

The current proposed curriculum is as follows:

All blocks are 4 weeks. There are 4 weeks of vacation.

1. Seven blocks of breast imaging
2. One block of multidisciplinary breast care (one week each with Breast Surgery, Breast Oncology, Breast Pathology, and Radiation Oncology).
3. Three blocks of body imaging with an emphasis on Body MRI
4. Two blocks of elective (could be used for breast or body imaging)
