The Department of Radiology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School offers an one-year fellowship in Emergency and Trauma Imaging. There is one fellowship position per year. There is currently a fellowship opening for 2019-2020.
UMass Memorial Healthcare services over 180,000 patients per year across four emergency departments in central Massachusetts, including Level 1 adult/pediatric trauma centers and regional stroke center. The Emergency Radiology division is equipped with state-of-the-art imaging equipment, including 128-detector CT, 1.5T MRI scanner, ultrasound, digital radiography, and nuclear medicine. All examinations are interpreted using AGFA PACS, Powerscribe 360, and TeraRecon post-processing software, in full integration with EPIC EHR.
The fellow becomes an integral member of the ED Radiology Division, joining a group of highly collegial, supportive and motivated faculty. The fellows will be actively involved in all components of emergency imaging – clinical consultation, protocol prescription, image interpretation and patient management recommendation. Clinical fellows can expect an immersive multimodality, multi-body part experience within a busy, high volume environment. We offer experience in coronary CTA, advanced emergency neuroimaging, MRI, pediatric trauma imaging and hands-on ultrasound. Attending staff is onsite 24-7. Fellows will individually tailor their training experience with one day per week of dedicated academic, scholarly time. Research and other academic pursuits are highly encouraged and supported. Up to 2 months of clinical elective time within other Radiology subspecialty divisions will be allowed.
The Division of Emergency Radiology hosts/participates in educational conferences, case conferences and multidisciplinary quality/process improvement conferences. Medical student and radiology resident interactions allow for many teaching opportunities. Fellows have a standard academic allowance fund to spend on educational materials and/or conference attendance.
