The Emergency Imaging Fellowship at OHSU is a one-year-long program starting on July 1 and ending on June 30. The standard workday covers the late afternoon to late evening time frame. This provides exposure to diverse trauma and pathology that often occurs at different time periods of the day and night while also providing one-on-one teaching and allowing an increasing level of independence over the course of the year.

The OHSU Emergency Imaging program is staffed by fellowship-trained body, cardiothoracic, musculoskeletal, pediatric, and neuroradiologists. The program offers exceptional training at a Level 1 trauma center and covers all aspects of emergency imaging, including radiography, CT/CTA, MRI/MRA, and ultrasound. There is plenty of opportunity for institutional interdisciplinary interactions through multiple trauma conferences in addition to numerous multidisciplinary conferences across the subspecialties, including medicine/family medicine, pulmonology/critical care, body, MSK, pathology, thoracic and cardiac surgery. We strongly encourage fellows to participate in collaborative research, both clinical and preclinical. We also encourage and offer support for fellows to present at regional and national conferences. Support is provided through protected academic time and a conference discretionary fund. In addition, our department's advanced facilities and expert mentors will give fellows the skills required to become first-rate Emergency Imaging Radiologists.

The Emergency Imaging Fellowship at OHSU is a non-ACGME fellowship program. Candidates must be board-certified or board-eligible radiologists. Candidates must also be eligible for an unrestricted Oregon State Medical License prior to beginning the fellowship. Candidates for fellowship are selected through individual applications, not through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP).

Working in Portland, Oregon

Portland is a nature enthusiast's paradise. The city is surrounded by lush greenery, and it's only a 90-minute drive to the Columbia Gorge, Mount Hood, or Cannon Beach. Cherry blossoms bloom in Spring. Summer offers clear skies and an average temperature of 80 degrees. Our numerous trees turn warm hues in Autumn. Winter is characterized by mild temperatures, clouds, and rain, with a snow day on rare occasions. Portland culture is laid-back, friendly, and down-to-earth. OHSU is situated on Marquam Hill; from the hospital, you can see beautiful views of the city, Mount Hood, and even Mount Saint Helens on a clear day.
