With dedicated academic time, fellows will be encouraged to participate in ongoing research, including interdisciplinary research in cardiac CT and MR. A large and varied patient population assures a wealth of clinical experience and exposure to a full spectrum of clinical pathology. Training includes daily interaction with the pulmonary, oncology, infectious disease, cardiology, and cardiothoracic surgery services. Additionally, fellows will have opportunities to participate in dedicated cardiothoracic radiology and interdisciplinary conferences including pulmonary tumor board, interstitial lung disease, adult congenital heart disease, CTEPH, advanced cardiac imaging, and lung transplant conferences.
