About UWSMPH Radiology Fellowships
Thank you for your interest in radiology fellowships at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
The Department of Radiology offers an accredited one-year fellowship in Vascular and Interventional Radiology; one-year non-accredited fellowships in Abdominal/Body Imaging, Breast Imaging, Thoracic Imaging, Clinical MRI, Musculoskeletal Imaging and Intervention, and PET-CT/Molecular Imaging; a one-year accredited Neuroradiology fellowship with the option for a second, non-accredited year; and, in partnership with the UW School of Business, a new Combined MRI/MBA fellowship.
All our fellowships share a common goal: to provide the necessary training to develop the best subspecialized radiologists. The faculty who train our fellows are nationally and internationally recognized authorities who truly enjoy teaching residents and fellows. Our equipment is state-of-the-art in all areas and includes: two Endocare cryoablation machines, one Covidien radiofrequency ablation switching controller machine, and one brand new cutting edge Neuwave microwave machine, all FDA approved for, and utilized for both clinical and experimental use; six onsite GE ultrasound units, all of which are 3D/4D capable and three of which have the latest in fusion and navigation software, three Philips ultrasound units designated for portable use, and three ultrasound units at offsite clinics; two 64-slice VCT scanners, two 16-slice Lightspeed, and one 16-slice Lightspeed wide-bore scanner equipped with CT-flouroscopy onsite, and two offsite 8-slice Lightspeed CT scanners; four state-of-the-art body interventional fluoroscopy suites, one of which is coupled to a 16-slice Lightspeed CT scanner, one biplane neurointerventional fluoroscopy suite, and two multipurpose fluoroscopy suites utilized primarily for musculoskeletal interventions; and three 3T MRI scanners and five 1.5T MRI scanners, including a large-bore surgical/interventional magnet. Breast Radiology equipment can be reviewed on the Breast Imaging section page.
We provide ample opportunities and resources for research, including access to the Wisconsin Institute for Medical Research (WIMR), a unique multispecialty collaborative facility with laboratories for developing and producing contrast agents and isotopes (including a cyclotron); image guided ablation and radiation facilities; a variety of other research laboratories including an animal surgery center and elastography and radiofrequency laboratories; pre-clinical scanners including micro CT, micro PET/CT, 64-channel SQUID system, two angiography units, and a 4.7 T small bore MRI system; and clinical scanners including 64-slice dual energy CT, 1.5 T and 3 T MRI, PET/CT, and 192-channel and 64-channel ultrasound. Formal and informal opportunities to teach our excellent residents and medical students abound. Fellows can engage in easily accessed moonlighting and "daylighting" options for additional income.
Our fellows are part of the UW Radiology team and contribute to the collegial, congenial atmosphere we treasure. As a bonus, Madison is a thriving, energetic community with endless outlets for our energy.
Our Neuroradiology and Interventional Radiology Fellowships participate in the NRMP match process and adhere to those guidelines.
