The Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences at Emory University School of Medicine offers a one-year fellowship in Emergency and Trauma Imaging. There are three fellows per year. There are currently fellowship openings for 2019, 2020, and 2021.
Emory University Healthcare provides emergency services to over 250,000 patients annually. Fellows receive comprehensive clinical experience in imaging arising from the emergency departments of five teaching hospitals (interpreted from two central reading rooms): Emory University Hospital, Emory University Hospital Midtown, Emory Johns Creek Hospital, Emory St. Josephs Hospital, and Grady Memorial Hospital.
Clinically, fellows can expect to gain emergent interpretive experience in CT, MR, Ultrasound, and radiography within a high volume 24-7-365 environment. Due to the size and breadth of our healthcare system, diagnostic volume and variety of clinical exposure is unrivaled. Fellows have the ability to customize their training experience to accommodate post-fellowship plans with a clinical or academic focus. Protected academic time at up to one day per week can be allotted for fellows interested in exploring research interests. Elective time within other subspecialty divisions can be explored.
The Division of Emergency Radiology hosts educational case conferences, M&M conferences, and a lecture series designed to enhance fellow education. Medical and allied health students and resident interactions afford fellows ample teaching opportunities. Fellows have a professional development fund of $2000 to spend on educational materials or conference attendance.
Applicants must have completed or be scheduled to complete an ACGME (American) or RCPSC (Canadian) accredited diagnostic radiology residency prior to July 1 of the fellowship year. Qualified applicants must hold an MD degree or equivalent and meet requirements for medical licensure in the state of Georgia.
