Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship

Program Director: Dr. Stacey Weisman,

The Cardiothoracic Imaging fellowship at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital - Weill Cornell Medical College is a one-year program designed to provide comprehensive training for one candidate per academic year.

The curriculum includes thoracic imaging (radiography, CT, and MRI), cardiovascular imaging (CT and MRI), and thoracic interventions (biopsy and ablation). If requested, whole body PET-CT and PET-MRI can be arranged. Fellows attend multidisciplinary conferences covering thoracic oncology, interstitial lung disease, and pulmonary medicine. Participation in resident education is expected, and research opportunities are available.

Cardiothoracic Imaging fellows experience approximately equal time on cardiac and thoracic services with the unique opportunity to work with both fellowship-trained cardiologists and radiologists on the cardiac service. The cardiac and thoracic services share a reading room and enjoy a tight-knit and collegial relationship. As a result, fellows should expect to see all interesting cases on a daily basis and are welcome to contribute to both services regardless of clinical assignment.
