Fellowship in Emergency Radiology - Brigham & Women’s Hospital

Fellowship in Emergency Radiology

Brigham & Women’s Hospital

We are pleased to announce we have expanded the Emergency Radiology Fellowship Program.  Effective July 2018, our Program now includes four Emergency Radiology Fellowship positions per year. 

We are presently accepting applications for the following:

Academic Year 2019-2020  - 1 position
Academic Year 2020-2021  - 2 positions

CLINICAL EXPERIENCE

This one-year fellowship is designed for radiologists seeking advanced training for a career in Emergency Radiology. There are three Emergency Radiology Fellowship positions per year.  Our fellows are exposed to the full breadth and depth of Emergency and Trauma Radiology in a diverse patient population in varied environments.  Clinical work focuses on the imaging of acutely ill and traumatized patients presenting to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Emergency Department, Brigham and Women's Faulkner Hospital Emergency Department and Foxboro urgent care center. We read all modalities and organ system, including Neuro and Ultrasound. Our reading room is located directly within the Emergency Department allowing our fellows to play crucial roles in the diagnostic imaging of these patients and to serve as integral members of the care team to help guide immediate management decisions through direct interaction with Emergency Medicine, the trauma team and consulting specialists in neurology, neurosurgery orthopedics, cardiothoracic, vascular, and plastic surgery. Under supervision of our dedicated 24/7 Emergency Radiology faculty, our fellows develop essential skills in optimizing imaging approach and workflow, managing a busy practice and interpreting all imaging modalities across all organ systems. In addition, each fellow spends approximately 10-12 weeks in the division of Neuroradiology at VA Health System to enhance their skills in Neuroradiology.

EDUCATION

Fellows are provided 2 hours a week of protected teaching time in the form of case review sessions and didactic lectures. Lectures are exclusively designed for ER fellows on important topics in Emergency Radiology. Intensive monthly BWH ER retreats are organized by the fellowship director to provide a comprehensive, focused review of the major basic & advanced principles of diagnostic emergency radiology. Each fellow is also provided protected time to participate in retreats which consist of QA session, didactic talks and discussion from radiology and clinical faculty members. Fellows may attend resident lectures throughout the year. There are several opportunities to participate in teaching activities for Harvard medical students and BWH radiology residents

RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES

A generous allowance for academic time of up to one day a week is granted to those interested in an academic career and gainfully involved in research. Fellows are encouraged to initiate their own research projects with full support from relevant staff members, or to select projects from several ongoing in the division. Fellows are provided academic work-space and access to Harvard resources.   

 

JOB OPPORTUNITIES

When staff positions are available, qualified fellows are strongly considered for transition into attending roles within the Division of Emergency Radiology at conclusion of fellowship.
