An additional Cardiac and Pulmonary Imaging fellowship position is now available beginning July 1st, 2021 at UCSF.
Our fellowship offers education and clinical experience in all aspects of cardiothoracic imaging – cardiac MRI, coronary and cardiac CT angiography, chest CT, high-resolution CT, and CT guided lung biopsy techniques – and we offer our fellows protected academic time to increase the flexibility and customizability of their fellowship experience.
Fellows experience in a diverse array of different cardiac MRI indications including congenital heart disease, cardiomyopathies, viability MRI and valvular disease amongst others. By the end of the year, the fellow will have had enough experience in coronary CT angiography to meet the qualifications for certification from any society. The clinical cardiac experience will be complemented by weekly and monthly cardiac imaging conferences led by experts in the field.
The pulmonary radiology experience is also very diverse with a wide spectrum of both inpatient and outpatient referrals. UCSF has a very active interstitial lung disease clinic treating a wide range of both common and rare diffuse lung diseases. The fellow is encouraged to participate in the weekly interstitial lung disease multi-disciplinary conference with pulmonary medicine, radiology and pathology. There is also a very active inpatient clinical pulmonary medicine service that has a very close relationship with radiology and participates in weekly pulmonary consult radiology teaching sessions.
Overall, the chest imaging fellowship at UCSF provides a comprehensive and diverse combined cardiac and pulmonary experience which will prepare the fellow with the knowledge and experience to practice thoracic imaging in any clinical setting.
Applicants must be eligible to obtain a full California medical license.
