Why We’re Unique
Our non-ACGME accredited fellowship program is highly flexible, and can be customized based on the goals of the individual fellow. For example, the fellow seeking to maximize their exposure to body MRI can be given additional rotations in MRI. In addition, fellows may rotate in areas outside of abdominal imaging. Popular rotations include chest imaging, nuclear medicine and musculoskeletal imaging.
The fellow’s call obligations are fairly minimal. Each fellow is expected to take one 12-hour weekend call shift (7am-7pm) per month. There is no overnight or after hours call expectation.
A major benefit of our abdominal imaging fellowship is the possibility for outstanding, highly qualified international medical graduates to perform 4 consecutive fellowships at Boston University Medical Center. The interested fellow that performed at a high level will be evaluated during their initial fellowship year to determine if they merit subsequent fellowship(s). After completing 4 fellowships at BMC, an IMG fellow will then be eligible to sit for the American Board of Radiology examinations and subsequently to pursue staff radiologist positions.
