Abdominal Imaging

The Penn Abdominal Imaging Fellowship was established in 1978 with one fellow, and now has grown to accommodate up to 9 fellows each year. The fellowship program, which provides an extremely well-rounded experience in clinical, educational and research endeavors, is Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accredited. Fellows who graduate from this program are respected nationwide and go on to have successful careers in both academic and private practices.

On behalf of the nation's first school of medicine (founded by Benjamin Franklin, 1765) and one of the nation's top ranked radiology department in NIH funding, we invite you to consider continuing your radiology training at the University of Pennsylvania.

Program Overview

The abdominal imaging fellowship is a one-year course of training consisting of thirteen four-week blocks, including 5 on MRI (including MR experience in MSK and Cardiovascular Imaging), 3 on Ultrasound, 3 on Abdominal CT, 1 on GI/GU where the fellows can concentrate on CT Urography and Virtual Colonoscopy, 1 on PET CT, as well as the opportunity for elective time.

Each section combines a broad array of didactic teaching with high volume clinical learning opportunities. Our goal is to train productive, confident body imagers, teaching them to become skilled both with established techniques as well as with cutting edge imaging protocols.
