Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship at Montefiore
The Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship at Montefiore and Albert Einstein College of Medicine is a one-year program that trains fellows in all areas of pulmonary and cardiac imaging. Two fellows are selected each year to harness their skills conducting and interpreting radiographs, chest CT, cardiac CT and MRI and performing CT-guided lung and mediastinal biopsies in pursuit of an academic career or private practice.
The diverse patient population at Montefiore offers fellows exposure to a broad range of conditions, including: asthma, COPD, lung cancer, AIDS-related lung diseases, interstitial lung disease, congenital and acquired heart disease, pneumonia, pulmonary embolism and aortic syndromes. All our radiologists are subspecialized in the field of cardiothoracic radiology.
As participants at one of the premiere academic radiology departments in the New York metropolitan area, fellows learn in a collegiate work environment. Staff members place great emphasis on helping fellows succeed, develop their academic interests and build their careers. This is complemented by various opportunities to teach and participate in research endeavors, along with access to state-of-the-art technology. Additionally, cases are addressed in a multidisciplinary approach, so fellows can glean insights from various experts such as pulmonologists, adult and pediatric cardiologists, cardiothoracic surgeons and pathologists.
The Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship program combines extensive hands-on experience with comprehensive didactic training, research and teaching responsibilities. The fellowship is half cardiac and half thoracic imaging with the fellows rotating between the disciplines on a weekly basis. In addition to taking part in Grand Rounds and journal club, fellows rotate through — and present at — numerous multidisciplinary weekly and monthly conferences, encompassing: pediatric and adult cardiology, oncology, pulmonary medicine, and pulmonary pathology.
Fellows taking part in teaching conferences is strongly emphasized. Additionally, Montefiore Medical Center is a fertile environment for research endeavors. Mentors guide each fellow in the choice of research project, as well as through the process of pursuing funding. Fellows typically participate in ongoing research and take primary responsibility for at least one project with the goal of presenting at a national conferences and preparing a manuscript for submission.
