The Johns Hopkins Department of Radiology is currently accepting applications for a fully integrated Cardiothoracic Imaging fellowship position at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for the academic year of 2022-2023.
Our mission at Johns Hopkins is to provide an outstanding educational experience for fellows who will become future leaders in their subspecialty. This one-year fellowship is offered under the guidance of internally renowned cardiothoracic imaging experts, Dr. Stefan Zimmerman and Dr. Cheng Ting Lin. The selected fellow will receive benefits including paid vacation, health insurance and educational reimbursements. Dedicated academic time is given to support research, attendance at subspecialty annual meetings, and other scholarly activities.
Primary teaching will occur in one-on-one sessions throughout the clinical day with attendings from our dedicated cardiothoracic imaging team of 7 exerts to learn chest CT, cardiac CTA, and cardiac MRI.
Fellows will rotate through The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, both of which provide unique and complementary educational opportunities. Fellows will also interpret studies from four high-volume freestanding imaging centers. In addition to CT and MRI imaging, interested fellows will rotate through nuclear medicine, acquiring the skills for stress SPECT performance, and the interventional radiology service, learning how to perform image guided chest biopsies.
In addition to rotating with the cardiothoracic imaging team, the fellow will also benefit from the multidisciplinary collaboration that is such a strength of the Johns Hopkins system. Fellows will attend and gain sufficient knowledge to staff several multidisciplinary conferences, including thoracic tumor board, interstitial lung disease, congenital cardiac surgery, and arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. These conferences will be a great opportunity for fellows to learn how cardiothoracic imaging fits within the context of the greater patient care team, and will learn how to tailor imaging reports to the needs of the ordering practitioners.
Overall, this fellowship will provide a comprehensive cardiac and pulmonary experience to prepare fellows with the knowledge and experience to practice thoracic imaging at a subspecialized level.
