INTRODUCTION – EMERGENCY RADIOLOGY FELLOWSHIPS
Emergency Radiology Fellowships have emerged to address the increasing demand for experienced, 24/7 acute care imagers. There are currently 18 U.S.-based fellowship programs, although the number of programs continues to grow each year.
This rigorous 12-month, high-volume imaging fellowship exposes trainees to a wide spectrum of imaging across all specialties, including advanced imaging techniques such as MR/MRA, CT/CTA and in some centers cardiac and dual-energy CT. Emergency Radiology Fellowships provide trainees with a well-rounded education in trauma and non-trauma acute care imaging that can serve as a solid foundation for a career in private practice or academic Emergency Radiology. Non-interpretive skills such as Emergency Department work-flow management, best practices and protocols, and mass-casualty preparedness and response are also emphasized.
Career opportunities for Emergency Radiology fellows are plentiful as the need for fellowship-trained Emergency Radiologists at large academic centers and private practices continue to grow. Please visit the Fellow Alumni page to learn more about past fellow job selections.
