Cancer Imaging Clinical Fellowship at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute
The Cancer Imaging Program (CIP) Fellowship at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute provides extensive experience in body imaging including MRI, CT, PET/CT, and US in adult patients with cancer. Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) is a Harvard Medical School Teaching affiliate and provides adult clinical care jointly with Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
Depending on chosen track (General cancer imaging or PET-CT); 80% time will be spent reading cancer imaging studies with our CT, MR, U/S, or PET-CT.
Approximately 20% of the fellow’s time can be dedicated to research assuming that a detailed research project outline has been presented and approved by an attending radiologist as the project mentor. Research milestone schedules are clearly articulated and research progress is closely monitored.
Four weeks of the CIP fellowship is designated elective time. Elective time may be spent on approved research projects, or in other radiology disciplines elsewhere.
On-call responsibilities consist of weekend day coverage.
U.S. applicants must be board-eligible or board-certified in radiology. Foreign applicants must be ECFMG certified and eligible to obtain a clinical visa prior to starting the fellowship. The fellowship at DFCI is structured in accordance with the fellowship regulations as provided by the Department of Radiology at BWH.
Teaching/Conference Responsibilities: There is a weekly seminar series designated for Category 1 CME credit, including introductory and modality-based lectures and disease-centric “blocks” thereafter. Other educational activities include a weekly radiology-pathology conference, drug conferences and MRI/CT case conferences. These are in addition to continual one-on-one teaching throughout the day.
Fellowship Supervision and Evaluation:
DFCI Cancer Imaging Fellows will receive continuous on-site training, teaching and feedback. Dr. Fiona Fennessy, Director of the DFCI Cancer Imaging Fellowship Program, Dr. Katherine Krajewski, Co-Director of the Fellowship Program, and Dr. Annick D. Van den Abbeele, Chief of the Department of Imaging, DFCI, will evaluate the fellow’s performance.
