Fellowship Programs

Advanced Fellowship in Cardiovascular MRI

The Division of Cardiovascular Medicine at Stanford University seeks fellows for research and clinical training in cardiovascular MRI. Ideally, applicants will have training in or knowledge of cardiovascular disease, as well as initial experience with cardiovascular imaging. They should also be willing to dedicate one to two years toward this advanced fellowship. The cardiovascular MRI program is directed by Dr. Michael McConnell, with a particular interest in atherosclerosis/vascular imaging. Dr. Philip Yang oversees the MRI research in myocardial and ischemic heart disease imaging. Both are attending physicians on the Clinical Cardiothoracic MRI Service (joint with Radiology) and in the Stanford echo lab.

The Advanced Techniques for Cancer Imaging & Dectection Program

This NCI-funded program provides MD and PhD research fellows with training in cancer-related imaging research. This two-year program, funded by the National Institutes of Health, supports research in magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy using 1.5T, 3.0T, and 7T whole-body magnets; advanced CT imaging; computational modeling; visualization and image reconstruction; molecular imaging; and nanotechnology. Our Program allows basic scientists in medical imaging (PhDs) and clinical scientists (MDs post residency) to collaborate in an unparalleled environment that combines medical imaging sciences, clinical sciences, a strong cancer focus, and an institutional commitment to training academic radiologists and basic scientists in imaging science.

Cardiovascular Medicine Training Program

The primary goal of the Stanford Cardiovascular Diseases Postdoctoral Fellowship Program is to train cardiovascular medicine specialists for careers in academic cardiology. Thus, the Program has a strong emphasis on balancing clinical training with investigative training. It is a three-year program composed of two years of clinical training and one year of investigative training.

The Stanford Molecular Imaging Scholars (SMIS) Program

The SMIS Program is a diverse training program bringing together more than thirteen Departments, predominantly from the Stanford Schools of Medicine and Engineering, in order to train the next generation of interdisciplinary leaders in molecular imaging. Oncologic molecular imaging is a rapidly growing area within molecular imaging and combines the disciplines of chemistry, cell/molecular biology, molecular pharmacology, physics, bioengineering, imaging sciences, and clinical medicine to advance cancer research, diagnosis, and management. The goals of SMIS are to train postdoctoral fellows through a diverse group of over 40 basic science and clinical faculty mentors representing 8 program areas, incorporating formal courses in molecular imaging, molecular pharmacology, cancer biology, cancer immunology, virology, and gene therapy, with a clinical component including hematology/oncology rounds.

Nuclear Medicine Fellowship Program

This clinical fellowship focuses on all aspects of clinical PET/CT imaging as well as clinical research projects that evaluate emerging Molecular Imaging technologies related to PET. Features include intensive training in the interpretation of FDG PET/CT, the formulations of imaging protocols, and the daily management of the PET/CT scanner. Training from both Radiology and Nuclear Medicine Faculty allow for a unique learning experience not available in most programs. The fellowship lasts one year and is renewable at the end of each academic year.
