Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship Program

Magnetic Resonance Imaging Fellowship Program

University of Rochester Department of Imaging Sciences offers four positions per year.

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.

Our large musculoskeletal referral base includes both University of Rochester and community based orthopedic specialists. We perform imaging for professional, collegiate and recreational athletes with a full range of orthopedic sports medicine abnormalities. We also perform imaging for pediatric and adult patients with a variety of degenerative and post traumatic orthopedic abnormalities. We have a busy MR arthrogram program involving multiple joints. In addition, we serve as the primary outpatient medical imaging center for the University of Rochester Medical Center.

The UMI fellows are actively involved in the protocolling and interpretation of MR cases including body MRI cases. Advanced imaging techniques include multimodality prostate MR imaging evaluation, spectroscopy and MR neurography. MRA and MRV are also performed for many of our patients to evaluate atherosclerotic, developmental, and oncologic abnormalities.


To be considered for entry into one of our fellowship programs, candidates should have successfully completed an ACGME-accredited Diagnostic Radiology residency program in the United States or an RCPSC-accredited or CFPC-accredited residency program in Canada, have board eligibility or board certification in Diagnostic Radiology by the American Board of Radiology, satisfactory completion of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) Steps 1, 2, and, if eligible, Step 3, have permanent residency status or citizenship in the United States, and a valid New York State license for non-accredited programs.
