Education & Training

Diagnostic Imaging offers six specialized fellowship programs. Fellows are provided 20% academic time and also actively participate in multidisciplinary tumor board conferences. 

Body Imaging: 

Provides training in cross-sectional oncologic imaging, including CT, MRI, PET and ultrasound.

Breast Imaging: 

Clinical experience in screening and diagnostic mammography, breast MRI, breast ultrasound, breast pathology and interventional procedures. Applications for this fellowship are accepted beginning in July of each year.

Musculoskeletal Radiology:

The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center,  Memorial Hermann Hospital and St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital accepts two individuals for a one-year fellowship that offers extensive clinical and academic research experience in an integrated program.

Neuroradiology / Head & Neck:

This educational program is for the second-year neuroradiology fellow interested in a dedicated year at MD Anderson for a comprehensive educational and research program of imaging for brain, spine, and head and neck tumors, including advanced imaging techniques.

Thoracic Oncologic Imaging

One individual per year is chosen for a one-year fellowship with extensive clinical experience in thoracic radiography, CT, MRI, and PET/CT, as well as an optional month of CT and US guided biopsies. 

Vascular & Interventional Radiology: 

A one-year program with rotations through three Texas Medical Center hospitals. Trainees gain experience in several interventional applications, including angioplasty/stent, arteriograms, drainages, uterine artery embolization, chemoembolization, radiofrequency ablation, biopsies and brachytherapy.

Additional fellowship program information may be found on MD Anderson's Graduate Medical Education site.


Physician-Scientist Advanced Scholar Program

The Physician-Scientist Advanced Scholar training program in Oncologic Imaging at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center pairs enthusiastic and talented young physician-scientists with established faculty mentors for an intensive two to three year experience specifically designed to promote innovative and transformative research in the field of oncologic imaging and therapy. The research experience is customized to match the interest and expertise of the applicant. At the end of the program, these physician-scientists are well poised to compete for NIH Grants and Funding such as K01s (Mentored Research Scientist Development Award) and K99s (Pathway to Independence Award) as they enter into an Assistant Professor position.
