Multimodality Cardiac Imaging Fellowship at Cedars-Sinai, Los Angeles – July 2020 & 2021
The Multimodality Cardiac Imaging fellowship at Cedars-Sinai provides a comprehensive clinical and research program in cardiac CT, nuclear cardiology, and cardiac MRI. Over 100 fellows have completed the two-year fellowship program, a large proportion of whom have gone on to full-time academic careers in cardiac imaging. We offer one-year and two-year programs, and applications are applications are being considered for fellowships beginning in July 2020, and 2021.
The clinical experience is based on direct participation with all aspects of advanced cardiac imaging in a high-volume laboratory in all fields, including one on one supervision by a faculty of five multimodality cardiac imaging specialists. The fellowship provides opportunity for COCATS level III competency in all fields.
Protected research time comprises more than half of the fellowship time. Fellows participate in all aspects of research, with focus on the modalities of their choosing. The highly productive clinical and technical research program is oriented to address aspects of imaging which have the potential to improve patient outcomes. Fellows work with NIH funded physicists/computer scientists who are advancing cutting edge methods for image quantification, interpretation and machine learning applications. Clinician/scientists add expertise in outcomes research, utilizing a research registry of over 100,000 patients.
A large volume of patients with diverse cardiac diseases is studied with the latest PET, SPECT, CT, and equipment on scanners in the collaborative program between in the Imaging Department at Cedars-Sinai and the world renowned Smidt Heart Institute at Cedars-Sinai. As part of the cardiology fellowship program, the fellows participate in the conferences in all fields. The didactic fellowship program covers basic science of nuclear cardiology, cardiac CT and MRI and includes a weekly clinical case review.
Candidates should be enrolled in or have completed a cardiology fellowship or a radiology residency. A track record in research is strongly preferred.
