In collaboration with adult and pediatric cardiology, we offer one two-year cardiac imaging fellowship to train board-certified or board-eligible radiologists or cardiologists with a structured curriculum for cardiac CT and MR imaging. The fellowship will provide a mentored training program with daily readout sessions covering a broad exposure to cardiac pathology adults and children. The fellow is expected to work as integral part of a multidisciplinary team while learning the principles and techniques of advanced cardiac imaging. University of Mississippi has well-staffed weekly clinical pediatric congenital heart disease cardiology and surgery conferences, as well as adult cardiology conferences. These will be a core part of the structured learning program. In addition, daily didactic cardiac MR and CT specific lectures will follow the SCMR and SCCT curricula, respectively. This fellowship opportunity is unique because it provides exposure to multiple cardiac imaging modalities in an interdisciplinary academic setting. In addition to diagnostic imaging, the fellow will work with medical students and residents rotating through the cardiac imaging division. Further opportunities for research in cardiac CT and MRI will also be available. It is expected that once a year, the fellow will present a formal lecture on cardiac imaging.
We look forward to receiving your credentials and meeting you during the recruitment season.
The Visiting Fellowship program is managed through the Department of Radiology. It is designed to provide a flexible and individualized learning experience. Although there is no direct patient contact, visiting fellows have the opportunity to participate in film interpretation, observe procedures and techniques as well as attend regularly scheduled case reviews and interdisciplinary conferences.
Enrollment in the Visiting Fellowship program is limited, and application in advance of the desired fellowship period is required. Please review the process for the Observer/Shadower seeking a three-day or less experience. Longer visits will require additional steps. For more information, contact the Residency Program director Dr. Anson Thaggard.
