The OHSU Body Imaging Fellowship predominately focuses on MR, US, CT, fluoroscopy, and procedures. This fellowship is perfect for radiologists considering either an academic or private practice career, and the program may be tailored to the fellow’s goals. OHSU is home to a robust transplant program, including liver, kidney, and pancreas, a level 1 trauma center, and the Knight Cancer Institute, allowing our trainees experience in interpreting challenging body imaging. Regular conference participation gives fellows a better understanding of radiology’s clinical impact and exposure to the most complex cases. Research requirements are tailored to the fellow’s interests. OHSU is in Portland, OR, one of the more eclectic and exciting cities with much to offer. The Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places in the United States with easy access to skiing, hiking, camping, kite-boarding, surfing, etc.
