Abdominal Imaging and GU Intervention

Sites:

Vancouver General Hospital & UBC Hospital

Overview

The University of British Columbia’s Abdominal Imaging and GU Intervention Fellowship has four (4) fully funded positions available for this one-year fellowship starting July 1st to June 30th each year. Located predominantly at the Vancouver General Hospital site, this Fellowship offers substantial clinical exposure and provides encouragement and support for clinical and basic scientific research with a weekly half-day of protected time for research activities.

Funding for presenting / attending conferences and academic pursuits is available. Fellows are encouraged to submit original research at UBC’s Radiology Research Day in mid-June, a yearly tradition for over 30 years.

A 1-year rotation in the Abdominal Imaging and GU Intervention Fellowship includes: diagnostic and interventional ultrasound, body CT with intervention, GU radiology and intervention, and body MRI. In addition, there is a CT Colonography program based at the UBC Hospital site. There is a large volume and wide variety of clinical cases as VGH is a regional tertiary centre for renal and hepatic transplantation, pancreaticobiliary surgery, complex urological surgery and is also a level 1 trauma centre.

Teaching and on-call commitments are modest. There are multiple clinico-radiological meetings throughout the week. The Abdominal Fellows are expected to coordinate and present at resident teaching rounds approximately four times per month which rotate between Ultrasound, CT, MRI and GU. Each fellow may be required to present once at the weekly Radiology Grand Rounds. There is a cohesive team of abdominal radiologists that work closely with the fellows to provide comprehensive exposure and teaching in body imaging and intervention. Upon completion, fellows will be well-trained in high level abdominal diagnostic imaging as well as gain a breadth of multimodality abdominal interventional skills.
