The Department of Radiology and Medical Imaging at the University of Virginia offers one (1) fellowship position in Cardiothoracic imaging, starting July 2015.

The Cardiothoracic Imaging fellowship will include a balanced combination of cardiovascular and thoracic imaging during the year of training. The cardiovascular imaging content of the training year will include interpretation of CT and MRI studies of the cardiovascular system, as well as hands-on experience in the acquisition of CT and MRI cardiac images for all indications including stress testing and pediatric and adult congenital heart disease. For thoracic imaging, the trainee will acquire experience in conventional radiography, CT and MRI of the chest, with focus in pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural pathology. Extensive experience will be gained in thoracic image guided procedures, mainly under US and CT guidance.

Cardiothoracic fellows will actively participate in multidisciplinary meetings with Cardiology, Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgery, Pulmonology and Pathology.

Cardiothoracic fellows will actively participate in multidisciplinary meetings with Cardiology, Cardiovascular and Thoracic surgery, Pulmonology and Pathology, as well as in daily teaching activities through interactions with residents, medical students, and clinical faculty.

Fellows are expected to engage in research during training. Participation in national meetings is encouraged and financial support is available for fellows presenting scientific research. Research opportunities in both cardiovascular and thoracic imaging are offered. Regular academic time is provided.
