The MRI fellowship program at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore has one open position beginning in July 2017. The fellowship is designed to provide the board-certified or board-eligible radiology fellow with practical experience in clinical MR imaging. Rotations are evenly divided between the neuroradiology, body, and musculoskeletal sections with elective time to pursue individual interests. Daily responsibilities include the planning, performance and interpretation of various MR experiments in a high volume, all digital, University setting. Fellows can gain exposure in advanced MR imaging techniques including MR perfusion, spectroscopy, fetal MRI, DTI and tractography, functional MRI, and cardiac imaging.
In addition to their clinical responsibilities, there is a half a day a week of dedicated academic time and didactic training. The curriculum spans MR physics and imaging generation through safety and quality control issues. Extensive research opportunities are available via collaboration with research scientists from the University of Maryland Magnetic Resonance Research Center (MRRC) and the Core for Translational Imaging @ Maryland (CTRIM), which has multiple ongoing projects as well as dedicated research magnets.
The University of Maryland Medical Center has 800 beds and comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care.
