Imaging Informatics

The imaging informatics fellowship, typically combined with a clinical fellowship, provides radiologists with a foundation in a wide variety of topics that fall under our broad definition of imaging informatics, which encompasses fields including clinical radiology, information technology, physics, computer science, engineering, government, and regulation, as well as business and management. The program is based on a combination of didactic sessions, small group discussions, and research projects. It is our goal to provide a challenging, interactive, collegial environment for physicians who want to leverage technological change to transform health care.

Fellows in Imaging Informatics divide their time, with 3 days per week as part of a clinical fellowship in diagnostic radiology and 2 days for informatics. Fellows work with radiologists, information technology professionals, software developers, researchers and vendors to gain experience with technology in imaging and medicine. Fellows are expected to engage in research under the guidance of the program mentors and department staff, leading to conference presentations and peer-reviewed manuscript publications. Our past fellows have been successful in applying their skills in leadership roles in academics, private practice, and industry.
