The Abdominal and CT/MRI Radiology Fellowships at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine offer comprehensive training in all cross-sectional imaging of the abdomen and pelvis. Two positions are available each year, one of which is ACGME-accredited. The program includes rotations in CT, MRI and ultrasonography, as well as image-guided interventional procedures. The latter distinguishes our program from many other institutions, as fellows have the unique opportunity to perform various fine-needle and core-needle percutaneous biopsies and drainage procedures using CT or sonographic guidance.
Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of pathology, high volume of cases, state-of-the-art technology, a friendly working environment, and ample unique research opportunities. Our imaging case mix encompasses a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions, including a large oncology referral base, and cases from the liver and kidney transplant services. Fellows will achieve a high level of proficiency in interpreting multiple imaging modalities and performing interventional procedures.
The MRI section conducts the entire range of abdominal/pelvic examinations, including endorectal coil prostate MRI, dynamic MRI of the pelvic floor and MRA of abdominal perforators prior to breast reconstruction surgery. Dedicated time spent at the console of MR scanners allows fellows opportunities to learn the intricacies of body MRI with a focus on optimizing images for each patient.
Our board-certified abdominal radiologists are subspecialized and fully dedicated to the diagnostic and interventional procedures of the abdomen and pelvis. We function as a multidisciplinary team, working closely with gastroenterologists, general surgeons, urologists, and gynecologists, pathologists and oncologists to optimize the outcome for each patient.
The one-year curriculum is comprised of three months of ultrasonography, and the remaining nine months are split between CT and MRI. Interventional procedures are included during both ultrasound and CT rotations. In addition to daily hands-on experience, fellows conduct a monthly Journal Club. They attend departmental and interdepartmental conferences and participate in teaching radiology residents and medical students, as well as researching a project. Many of our fellows' research projects have been presented at national and international meetings, and published in peer-reviewed journals.
Salary and Benefits
Montefiore Medical Center offers a competitive salary and benefits package, including four weeks of vacation and one funded conference week for fellows. Subsidized housing is available close to the Moses Division and in Riverdale. Fellows also receive three meal cards each day, which may be used at all food stations at Montefiore Medical Center Moses and Einstein Campuses, as well as reduced rates for monthly parking.
Montefiore Medical Center is located in a pleasant residential section of the North Bronx, close to the Westchester border and several major highways. Residents, fellows, and faculty easily commute from Manhattan, Westchester, Connecticut, Rockland, and New Jersey.
Montefiore housing is available in Riverdale (10 minutes away) and also on the Medical Center grounds.
The Abdominal Radiology Fellowship is accredited by the ACGME.
