Abdominal Imaging Fellowship
Gain practical experience
Specialize in abdominal imaging with our one-year fellowship program. This training program, which features both clinical and academic components, begins with an orientation period in July and August. During this time, you'll work under graded supervision, making a significant contribution to the clinical work of the department. Throughout the remainder of the fellowship, you'll participate in a research project leading to presentation and publication.
How does it work?
The academic program commences in September. During the program, you'll be expected to contribute to resident teaching, both at the workstation and in formal rounds.
You'll also participate in the weekly Grand Rounds, as well as the weekly abdominal imaging rounds. Depending on rotation, you'll also participate in interdisciplinary rounds with various clinical teams.
During your fellowship, you'll practice abdominal computed tomography (CT), ultrasound and abdominal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
This fellowship is based at the Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre, which is made up of the Halifax Infirmary and the Victoria General Hospital in Halifax.
The Halifax Infirmary not only holds the province's level three trauma centre, it's also the site of many acute clinical services, including:
- orthopedic surgery
- cardiac surgery
- vascular surgery
The Victoria General is the site of the Nova Scotia Cancer Centre, the Nova Scotia transplant service and multiple in-patient services, including:
- thoracic surgery
- hepatobiliary surgery
- colorectal surgery
