The one-year Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, provides an exceptional clinical and academic experience to prepare you for subspecialty private or academic practice in cardiothoracic radiology.

Through exposure to a diverse high-volume practice, personalized supervision and mentorship by experts in the divisions of Cardiovascular Radiology and Thoracic Radiology, and access to state-of-the-art imaging equipment, you become highly proficient in all facets of cardiothoracic radiology. Both divisions actively participate in several multidisciplinary conferences with subspecialty clinical and pathology colleagues, further contributing to a rich learning experience.

The fellowship includes training in chest radiography, computed tomography (CT), fluoroscopy, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), as well as dedicated training in cardiovascular imaging, including: cardiac CT, CT angiography, cardiac MRI and MR angiography. Experience in image-guided thoracic interventions including CT-guided biopsies, pleural drainage procedures, and CT-guided ablations can be arranged.

The fellowship program is flexible and can be tailored to meet your unique needs and interests.

Program history

This combined Cardiothoracic Imaging Fellowship began in 2017 at Mayo Clinic's campus in Rochester, Minnesota. Our existing thoracic imaging fellowship, which started in 1995, and cardiac imaging fellowship, which began in 2002, merged to create the fellowship. We anticipate that two trainees will complete this program annually.
