Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging Rotation (one month minimum)
The Yale Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging rotation is an addition to the Core Clinical Curriculum for all Cardiovascular Medicine trainees. Its purpose is to introduce the fellow to the background, basics and applications of advanced cardiovascular imaging techniques including cardiovascular computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (CMR).
The rotation comprises 4 weeks during 1st or 2nd year of Cardiology Training. The fellows are expected to be available daily for assistance with imaging consultation with referring physicians, assistance in study scheduling, live image acquisition and study reporting. The Yale Advanced Cardiovascular Imaging service is staffed by a collaborative effort from faculty in both the Departments of Radiology and Cardiology. Cardiology fellows are expected to interact and work with trainees from other Departments such as Radiology residents or Nuclear Medicine residents.
