Radiology Fellowship Programs

The Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Radiology and Imaging Sciences offers 13 fellowship programs, which provide advanced subspecialty education and clinical training for graduates of diagnostic radiology residency programs. These training programs build on knowledge acquired during residency and prepare fellows to function as experts in an area of subspecialization.

By training in the largest medical enterprise within Indiana, which serves as a referral center for the entire state, IU School of Medicine radiology fellows are exposed to a wide range of imaging and pathology cases in a collegial work environment. This, combined with a vast array of leading-edge technology, world renowned radiologists, and referring physicians as well as interdepartmental/multidisciplinary conferences allow for fellows to mature their clinical skillset and transition to autonomous sub-specialists. At the completion fellowship training, fellows are ready for independent practice in either academic or private practice settings.
