Gill Heart Institute Cardiovascular Imaging International Education and Research Fellowship

About the Fellowship

The purpose of our fellowship program, presently in its third year of administration, is to prepare international medical graduates for future academic careers in the interdisciplinary field of cardiovascular imagine. The fellowship is unfunded and in order to acquire a visa, learners will have to demonstrate they have the resources to support themselves independently for the duration of the fellowship.

The curriculum of the fellowship is tailored to the learner but generally includes instruction in such topics as the ethics of human subject research, imaging physics, image processing with an emphasis on volume visualization, academic writing, cardiovascular anatomy and pathology, experimental design, public speaking, and the art of instruction.

Each fellow is assigned one or more mentors who direct the fellow’s research efforts and career development.

Fellow responsibilities include such activities as drafting academic communications (eg. manuscripts, institutional review board proposals, and grant proposals), image post processing and 3D printing, supervising data collection by medical students and undergraduates, providing weekly lectures to undergraduates and high school students, coordinating clinical trials, and serving as an instructor for regional workshops focused on cardiovascular imaging post processing.
