Education & Training
Conferences and Training
The ultimate goal is for the breast imaging fellows to assume the role of primary imager with the faculty person as a supervisor. The breast imaging division has a strong interest in fellow and resident education and clinical research is encouraged.
Fellows are actively involved in the interpretation of examinations, performance of procedures and consultation with referring physicians. There is one weekly multidisciplinary tumor board conference attended by the fellows and a faculty member. Other conferences include the monthly radiology-pathology conference, monthly journal club and weekly resident conferences.
As a breast imaging fellow, dedicated research time is negotiable, and there is access to Case Center for Imaging Research (CCIR), which is a joint venture between Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine and UH Cleveland Medical Center. There is funding available for educational meetings/conferences.
On-call weekend responsibilities exist and vary yearly depending on the needs of the department.
