Breast Imaging Fellowship

Cleveland Clinic’s Imaging Institute is currently accepting applications for one one-year fellowship position in the Section of Breast Imaging, to begin July 1st of each year.

Our section currently performs over 110,000 examinations per year, including over 90,000 screening examinations, 30,000 diagnostic studies, and 2,000 breast MRI’s.

The fellow will also have four weeks of “elective” time during which he/she may choose to rotate with pathology, surgery, radiation oncology, and/or genetics.

Cleveland Clinic’s Section of Breast Imaging is staffed by fifteen full and part time dedicated breast imaging radiologists, the majority of whom are fellowship trained.  The Section of Breast Imaging is physically located within a dedicated breast center, giving the fellow the opportunity to also serve as an integral member of a multi-disciplinary clinical team.

While not mandatory, the fellow is encouraged to participate in research projects.  For projects where the fellow is listed as first author on the poster or presentation and is the “presenter”, the office of Graduate Medical Education provides appropriate funds for attendance pending approval by the fellowship director.

All applicants must have completed a United States residency training program in diagnostic radiology, and must be board certified or eligible by the American Board of Radiology prior to commencing the fellowship.

Thoracic and Cardiac Imaging Fellowship

Cleveland Clinic’s Thoracic Imaging Fellowship program offers comprehensive training in all aspects of thoracic and cardiac imaging including thoracic CT, MR and plain film as well dedicated time with cardiac CT and MR. Chest intervention and biopsy rotations can be incorporated at the request of the fellow and the time spent in each area can be tailored to the individual’s interests and needs. A portion of each fellow’s schedule is protected for academic and scholarly pursuits such as research projects, preparation of manuscripts for peer-reviewed journals and preparing presentations for national meetings with available mentors to help guide each individual. A unique resource at Cleveland Clinic is the Center for Medical Art and Photography which is available for support in all academic endeavors, something that past fellows have found very useful.

The department consists of 9 fulltime thoracic and 3 fulltime cardiac imagers, all of whom have advanced training in their respective fields. Teaching conferences are held regularly and all staff members are approachable, eager to teach and actively engaged in educational discussions with fellows and residents.  Our volumes include over 150,000 thoracic imaging examinations (including 20,000 CT imaging studies), over 200 interventional procedures, over 2,000 Cardiac MR and over 7,000 Cardiac CTs are performed annually.
