The Department of Radiology at Keck Medicine of USC is offering a one-year fellowship in Cardiothoracic Imaging and Intervention. The goal of the fellowship is to provide comprehensive and advanced training in both pulmonary and cardiac imaging, as well as thoracic interventions. The pulmonary experience encompasses a wide variety of inpatient and outpatient studies, including high-resolution chest CT and lung cancer screening low-dose CT. Cardiac imaging includes both cardiac CT and MRI, with both acquired and congenital disease being routinely studied. Thoracic interventions include percutaneous needle biopsy, thoracentesis, pleural and pericardial catheter placement, and thermal ablation.
The fellowship can be tailored to radiologists interested in either an academic or private practice career, and includes 2-3 months of elective rotations. Following completion of training, the fellow will have accumulated enough clinical cardiac CT experience to meet the qualifications for Level 2 certification.
One position is currently available for the 2019-2020 academic year. Further information can be found here. For inquiries, please contact Veronica Ramirez, Fellowship Coordinator, at (323) 442-8721, or firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also reply or PM me for questions or direct inquiries.
