Cardiology Advanced Imaging Fellowship
The Cardiology Advanced Imaging fellowship is a one-year training program offered by The University of Washington.
Our program accepts one fellow per year. Applicants who have completed general cardiology fellowship training are welcome to apply.
The major purpose of this fellowship training is to prepare individuals for careers in academic medicine. It is anticipated that at the end of their training, these highly qualified and skilled individuals will be able to launch on a productive research and clinical career. It is expected that fellows will achieve level III certification in echocardiography and either be eligible to become directors of
academic echocardiography laboratories or to work as multimodality imagers and researchers in academic medical centers.
The curriculum is tailored to the background of the applicant, but opportunities will provide for advanced training in Transthoracic
echocardiography, Transesophageal echocardiography, Dobutamine and Exercise Echocardiography, Computed tomography, Magnetic resonance imaging, Nuclear SPECT and PET imaging.
Fellows will be expected to participate in research and educational initiatives during their training.
