Job Details

We're saving lives, building careers, and reimagining healthcare. We can't wait to grow alongside you.

The Tufts Medical Center Department of Radiology is pleased to offer an Emergency and Trauma Radiology (ETR) Fellowship for academic year 2024-2025 (2 spots) and 2025-2026 (2 spots). This program is not ACGME accredited and we accept fellows outside any matching process.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
This is a one-year fellowship designed for radiologists wishing to receive advanced training in emergency radiology with a focus in neuroradiology. This training program may be suitable for those considering a career in Emergency Radiology, private practice/community radiology, and Teleradiology. Fellows are exposed to Emergency and Trauma Radiology at a Level 1 Trauma Academic Medical Center in the heart of the city of Boston. Primary focus of clinical work involves interpretation of the imaging of acutely ill and traumatized patients presenting to Tufts Medical Center (TMC) Emergency Department.

At TMC, all reading rooms have recently undergone major renovation and provide a modern and attractive working environment for ETR fellows.

ETR Fellows serve as key members of the care team and facilitate timely communication with Emergency Medicine, Trauma Surgery, Neurology and Neurosurgery, Orthopedics, Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery teams.

ETR Fellows will be supervised by dedicated Neuroradiology, Body, and MSK Attending Radiologists, depending on their rotations, during normal business hours (8 am to 5 pm). After 5 pm, imaging services are covered by our dedicated remote nighthawk radiologists with Day Float and Night Float residents until 2 am. After 2 am, all imaging services are covered by the Night Float resident with Teleradiology Attending coverage. There is no mandatory after-hours duty for ETR fellows, i.e. they are only required to work from 8 am to 5 pm on week days. There are no mandatory evening shifts, weekend shifts, or overnight shifts.

CLINICAL ROTATIONS

6-month Emergency Radiology (acute neuro, body and MSK pathology and trauma)

6-month Neuroradiology (acute inpatient and outpatient CNS pathology)
For those trainees who already have, or plan to acquire, Massachusetts Full Physician License by the start date of July 1st (or during the fellowship), they can participate in a voluntary Moonlighting within TMC Radiology to earn extra income by covering weekend calls (Saturday and Sunday, 8 am to 5 pm) as an attending (i.e. signing off reports).

Academic time of up to half-a-day per week may be granted to those who would like to be involved in research and/or quality improvement projects. All ETR fellows may attend resident teaching sessions when their schedule allows. Fellows' clinical performance will be evaluated and reviewed by the Program Director and Assistant Program Director on a regular basis, with formal feedback sessions at least every 6 months. Involvement in research and/or quality improvement projects are encouraged but not required. ETR fellows have several opportunities to participate in teaching activities for Tufts University medical students and TMC radiology residents.

CAREER OPTIONS AFTER FELLOWSHIP

Qualified fellows are strongly considered to transition into attending roles at the conclusion of fellowship. Hiring options include a private practice position for those who wish to transition into community radiology, mix of both community and academic radiology, and an academic position at TMC. For those who wish to move onto Teleradiology practice anywhere in the world, our program offers an excellent well-rounded training including all aspects of emergency, trauma, and acute imaging.
