Overview – Diagnostic Radiology

The department of Radiology offers post-residency fellowships in various specialties of diagnostic imaging for a one-year or two-year time period. Applicants may wish to study in more than one subspecialty area by dividing the year into two or three segments. Rotations for less than six months are generally discouraged (except for cross-sectional body imaging), although exceptions may be made in special circumstances.

These fellowships are designed to provide individuals an opportunity for specialized training and academic development. The fellow will actively participate in all functions of the selected division, and will assume significant responsibility for its daily operation under the supervision of a full-time faculty member. The fellowship will emphasize current state-of-the-art practices and newer imaging techniques within the selected area of sub-specialization. Opportunities to instruct radiology residents and/or perform basic or clinical research in the selected area will be provided.

The department is responsible for diagnostic imaging at the University's Medical Center, which includes nearly 1000 hospital beds in the main, children's and women's hospitals and cardiovascular center and a large outpatient facility. The range of clinical material available is reflected in the diagnostic output of approximately over 600,000 examinations yearly. Inasmuch as the University of Michigan Hospitals is a large tertiary referral center, a very high percentage of cases studied in the radiology department have significant pathology, and the variety of clinical material is outstanding.

NRMP/Radiology Fellowship Match

Three subspecialties will participate in the National Resident Matching Program fellowship match each year. If you are interested in this fellowship, please contact:

Divisions not participating in NRMP Fellowship Match

The UM Radiology Fellowships intend to comply with the SCARD timeline for fellowship interviews and offers in 2020 for the 2022-2023 academic year. Internal candidates, international candidates, military candidates, and spouses are excluded from the embargo date timeline.

This is a major change and we hope that it achieves the laudable goals of improving the process for our future fellows and colleagues. Its success will depend on open communication and transparency—we want to hear from our applicants! In particular, applicants who are caught in the transition between programs on the SCARD timeline and those with individual timelines should not hesitate to contact us.
