Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship

A one-year fellowship program at the University of Rochester (UR Medicine Imaging – University Medical Imaging), is available beginning July 2023. The outpatient center performs over 22,000 MR exams per year using five echoplanar magnets – three at 3 Tesla and two at 1.5 Tesla. Three fellowship positions are offered per year.

The fellowship program offers advanced training in MRI of the central and peripheral nervous system, musculoskeletal system and body; as well as MRA of the central nervous system, body, and extremities. Fellows will receive an excellent clinical experience from Faculty with advanced Fellowship training in Cross Sectional, Neuroradiological and Musculoskeletal Imaging.

Our program is one of a few in the nation to offer advanced training in outpatient MRI encompassing neuroradiology, musculoskeletal imaging, and body imaging.

Fellow teaching is provided at the work station by seven dedicated fellowship trained University of Rochester Department of Imaging Sciences faculty. Fellows actively participate in our weekly UMI MRI conference and in monthly interdisciplinary sports medicine and rheumatology conferences.

The strength of our program stems from our breadth of case material and exposure to a wide spectrum of pathologies. Neuroradiology cases encompass both acute and chronic abnormalities including degenerative spine and disc abnormalities, abnormalities of demyelination, and CNS and head and neck tumor evaluation.
