Abdominal Imaging Fellowship
The Abdominal Imaging Division in the Department of Radiology at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, in collaboration with Case Western Reserve University, offers a one-year fellowship for two fellows per year. The fellow will work closely with the faculty of the Abdominal Imaging Division, which includes diagnostic and interventional radiologists.
Our health system comprises more than 15 hospitals and the majority of abdominal imaging studies are interpreted at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center. This includes University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, part of the National Cancer Institute-designated Case Comprehensive Cancer Center at Case Western Reserve University (the nation’s highest designation) and University Hospitals MacDonald Woman’s Hospital, Ohio’s only hospital for woman.
We currently have openings for two fellowship positions in Abdominal Imaging for the 2022-2023 academic year.
