About Ohio State's Thoracic Imaging Fellowship

The Thoracic Imaging Fellowship is a one-year non-accredited program. The fellow is challenged to grow in medical knowledge and patient care skills by progressive increases in responsibility for the operations of the section. The fellow will participate in clinical case interpretation, education of residents and medical students on the rotation, and evaluation of the residents. The fellow is expected to actively participate in PQI with the faculty of the Thoracic Radiology section. A research project is required.

The thoracic radiology section currently has eight well-trained faculty members from programs such as UC San Diego, University of Pennsylvania, The Cleveland Clinic, The Ohio State University and Indiana University. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center provides a wealth of content for the thoracic radiology fellow, including outstanding programs in pulmonary and critical care medicine, thoracic oncology (surgical and medical), lung cancer screening and lung transplantation. The section requires fellow participation with faculty members in the Pulmonary Medicine ILD Conference and Thoracic Tumor Board.

Upon completion of training, fellows will have:
  • Advanced knowledge and patient care skills in all aspects of thoracic radiology
  • An understanding of physical principles of CR, DR and CT, including radiobiology 
  • Experience in resident and medical student training
  • Functional experience as a chest radiologist interpreting cases independently
