What Makes Us Unique
Our faculty members are dedicated professionals, with many at the top of their profession. And, it’s probably no coincidence that approximately 70% have ties to URMC by either obtaining their medical degree or completing their internship, residency or fellowship here.
The Department of Imaging Sciences enjoys a warm and collegial relationship with other departments throughout the University of Rochester Medical Center. Our fellows benefit by interacting closely with residents, fellows, and attending physicians from these programs at many interdisciplinary conferences.
The University of Rochester Medical Center is a level I trauma center, tertiary referral center, and a transplant center. This means that fellows will see a wide variety of cases not seen in most other fellowship programs.
Within the requirements of the program, fellow training can be modified to accommodate individualized needs and strengths, as well as hone learning to support a fellow’s specific professional interest.
The technology base of the department is “state of the art” with the latest CT, MR and information systems technology such as PACS and web distribution of images. Training programs are designed to enable fellows to acquire and demonstrate the knowledge, skills, and judgment necessary for competence in the specialty of their choice, and this is primarily achieved by involvement in clinical case material under direct supervision and guidance of the faculty. More formal teaching supplements this educational process by providing lectures, demonstrations and conferences as well as electronic teaching aids.
