Emergency Radiology Fellowship - Program Goals

The Emergency Radiology fellowship program offers trainees an in-depth, comprehensive experience with exposure to modern emergency radiology practice.  The goals of fellowship comprise education, patient care, quality/process improvement and scholarly activity components.

The clinical training enables fellows to accumulate a broad knowledge base, develop interpretative skills, and improve decision-making/consultation skills. Fellows will have the opportunity to develop, under supervision, independent skills for the oversight and interpretation of multimodality emergency radiologic imaging studies.

The fellowship program trains fellows to interact with emergency medicine, trauma surgery and other specialty referring physicians in a consultative role. This is accomplished during daily clinical duties in person at the UMMC University campus, and remotely, at 3 additional emergency departments in the system. Fellows are an integral part of all interdepartmental conferences, including clinical, patient care-related, process improvement and education conferences. Fellows are exposed to and participate in ongoing radiology quality and process improvement, educational and research projects within the section.

At the conclusion of the fellowship, fellows should be capable of independent and accurate clinical decision-making in all areas of Emergency Radiology.
