Abdominal Imaging Fellowship at Montefiore

The Abdominal and CT/MRI Radiology Fellowship at Montefiore and Albert Einstein College of Medicine offers 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 and image-guided interventional procedures, including CT and US-guided percutaneous biopsies and drainage procedures.

Fellows are exposed to a broad spectrum of pathology, high volume of cases, state-of-the-art equipment, a friendly work environment and ample 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 MRCP, MR Angiography, MR Urography, MR Enterography, endorectal coil prostate MRI and dynamic MRI of the pelvis.

Our board-certified abdominal radiologists are subspecialized and actively involved in both diagnostic imaging and interventional procedures of the abdomen and pelvis. We function as a multidisciplinary team, working closely with gastroenterologists, hepatologists, oncologists, surgeons, pathologists and other medical specialists to ensure the best outcome for each patient.

Curriculum

The one-year curriculum comprises three months of ultrasonography; 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. Fellows prepare for tumor boards with assistance from an attending radiologist, and lead the imaging part of the discussion in various tumor boards. A research project is offered to complete within the fellowship year.  Fellows must obtain a valid license to practice medicine in New York state before starting their duties.

Procedural Responsibilities and Caseload 

Under supervision of attending radiologist, the fellows interpret diagnostic CT, US and MRI of the abdomen and pelvis. They also perform and interpret hysterosalpingography, CT colonography, and CT and US-guided drainages and biopsies.

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 a daily meal stipend, which may be used at all food stations at Montefiore Medical Center Moses, as well as reduced rates for monthly parking.

Location

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 County and New Jersey.

Montefiore housing is available in Riverdale (10 minutes away) and also on the Medical Center grounds.
