Graduate medical education in radiology at Mayo Clinic

Page Content


The Abdominal Radiology Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, provides superb subspecialty radiology training while you work closely with experts in the imaging and interventional aspects of abdominal imaging.

The program teaches you the skills and knowledge necessary for a successful career in the academic or private practice of radiology with special emphasis on diseases of the gastrointestinal (GI) and genitourinary (GU) systems. You receive exposure to subspecialty imaging modalities and procedures that cannot be mastered in a radiology residency.

The goals and objectives of the fellowship include:

  • Hands-on experience with a large group of patients whose diagnosis and treatment requires advanced abdominal imaging and interventional techniques which are currently being developed and refined
  • Clinical instruction by fellowship-trained radiologists, many of whom are recognized experts in their fields
  • Experience with state-of-the-art MRI, CT and ultrasound equipment
  • Intensive training and experience with the most cutting-edge developments, including the application and interpretation of MRI at 3.0 T (GE Discovery MR750, MR750w with GEM coil) and 1.5 T (GE Discovery MR450w with GEM coil and Signa), photon counting CT, dual source and dual energy CT (Siemens Definition Flash), low radiation dose CT techniques, MR elastography, post-processing, and 3-D imaging and advanced image-guided interventions, which are currently being developed and evaluated by our team
  • Experience in a modern hospital facility that uses filmless imaging and electronic medical records, with transition to a GE Picture Archive Communications System (PACS)
  • Skillfully perform CT and ultrasound-guided biopsies and abscess drainages
  • Close interaction with outstanding medical, surgical, and pathology colleagues, with active participation in the management of complicated diagnostic problems and interventional procedures
  • Consulting as a subspecialist and recommending additional studies as appropriate
  • Outstanding clinical and basic research opportunities
