The Advanced Imaging (AI) Fellowship is a program of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). This fellowship is designed as a one or two year program. The goal of the fellowship is to train leaders in the field of advanced imaging, in particular advanced echocardiography. The program is based on clinical excellence and innovative research in the field. The physician in this program will receive clinical, didactic, and research training during this fellowship.

Scope of training

The scope of clinical training includes all areas pertaining to the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of transthoracic, transesophageal and stress echocardiography. An emphasis will be placed on advanced echocardiography including interventional echocardiography, strain and 3D measurements, physiology and hemodynamic knowledge and interactions with basic science. The fellow will be expected to reach Level III echo training at the end of his/her fellowship. A strong research education is integral to the fellowship and the fellow will be mentored in designing, accomplishing, and presenting a research study. A time component to receive training in cardiac MRI or CT can be incorporated in the fellowship.
