The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute/Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Cancer Imaging Program is accepting applications from MD/MD-PhD affiliates for a one-year Nuclear Oncology/PET-CT Fellowship.
The Dana-Farber Cancer Institute is a National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center. The clinical fellowship will provide physicians with advanced clinical imaging training in oncology with a focus on PET/CT, novel therapies and cross-sectional imaging. Fellows also have the opportunity to participate in various clinical research projects. Major areas of interest include molecular imaging, evaluation of novel therapeutic drugs, and new PET radiopharmaceuticals.
Approximately 80% time will be spent reading cancer imaging studies with our 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.
U.S. applicants must be board-eligible or board-certified in radiology or nuclear medicine. Foreign applicants must have radiologic or nuclear medicine training, have ECFMG certification and be 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.
Applicants should send C.V., Personal statement, USMLE scores, 3 reference letters (which must be sent directly by the referees) to the address below, and a recent photograph of yourself.
