Independent Clinical Fellowship in Body Imaging at North Shore University Hospital & Long Island Jewish Medical Center (NS/LIJ)
The Department of Diagnostic Radiology at North Shore University Hospital/Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell offers a multi-modality, one-year Body Imaging Fellowship with exposure to advanced cross-sectional imaging of the chest, abdomen and pelvis which includes diagnostic ultrasound, computed body tomography, MR and imaging guided procedures. Vascular US, CT and MRI studies are also performed. In addition, a combined Body/Breast Imaging fellowship is offered. The department provides imaging support for 11 hospitals in the health system, as well as numerous outpatient facilities. The program combines a broad array of didactic teaching with high volume clinical learning opportunities. Graduates of the program go on to have successful careers in both academic and private practices.
Our equipment is state-of-the-art with ultrasound, 64, 128 and 640 slice CT units with low-dose and dual energy techniques and 3.0 and 1.5 T MR scanners with latest applications including 3D imaging, fusion imaging, CT colonography, elastography, transplant imaging and advanced visualization analysis.
Our faculty consists of acknowledged experts in the field, widely published and recognized at local, national and international levels. Many of the faculty members hold leadership positions in local and national professional societies including NYRRS, ACR, RSNA, SRU, AIUM, APDR and ACGME. Additionally, faculty holds various positions within the Zucker School of Medicine, including Associate Dean of Admissions, Promotions Committee, Faculty Council and Anatomy and structured lab facilitators.
The department is horizontally structured. Relationships between faculty and fellows are highly collegial and usually on a first name basis. Daily teaching conferences include interdepartmental case reviews, didactic lectures and focused body and breast QA meetings. Fellows have a seat on department committees and have been integral in protocol development, curriculum design, educational activities, and IT initiatives. The fellows are involved in resident and medical student education. They give lectures and provide guidance and instruction during hands on ultrasound education including participation in the ultrasound curriculum in medical education.
The fellows are all strongly encouraged to participate in the many ongoing research projects that occur in the department. All fellows participate in at least one scholarly activity during training. They have financial support to attend conferences as first authors and are scheduled for oral presentations.
Up to three fellows are accepted each year. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning July 1. Trainees must complete an ACGME- accredited diagnostic radiology residency training program. A New York state license is required prior to beginning the training program.
