Oregon Health & Science University, Department of Diagnostic Radiology is offering a 1 year cardiothoracic fellowship, starting July 1st 2018. All candidates must be able to obtain an Oregon medical license and be board certified or board eligible.
The OHSU cardiothoracic imaging section is staffed by four fellowship trained cardiothoracic radiologists and they cover all aspects of cardiac and thoracic imaging including radiography, CT/CTA, MRI/MRA and thoracic biopsy procedures. There is plenty of opportunity for institutional interdisciplinary interactions through numerous multidisciplinary conferences and tumor boards, including medicine/family medicine, pulmonology/critical care, pathology, thoracic and cardiac surgery, medical oncology and radiation medicine. We strongly encourage fellows to participate in collaborative research. Collaborations with the Knight Cancer and Knight Cardiovascular Institutes allow for cutting edge technologies and research, both clinical and preclinical. We also encourage and offer support for fellows to present at regional and national conferences. Support is offered through protected academic time and a conference discretionary fund. Our department's advanced facilities and expert mentors will give fellows the skills required to become first-rate cardiothoracic radiologists.
