AIRP Abdominal Fellowship Training Program with a focus on Genitourinary Radiology


The AIRP Abdominal Fellowship Training Program is designed to provide additional training for radiologists who have completed their diagnostic radiology residency training.  It is ideally suited for radiologists with interests in academic radiology and medical education.

The primary goal of the fellowship is to aid residents and fellows in their endeavors to achieve excellence in the technologically advancing specialty of radiology, by employing radiologic-pathologic correlation in the identification of disease.

A secondary goal is for the fellow to learn from the current healthcare environment and encourage interest in academic radiology.


Applicants must meet the following criteria:

  • The applicant must have completed Medical School Education and obtained the degree of Doctor of Medicine.
  • The applicant must have completed or be enrolled in a U.S.-based and Accredited Diagnostic Radiology Residency training program.
  • Strong interest in pursuing an academic career and a research background
  • The applicant must be a U.S. Citizen (but not a dual citizen). This requirement is in place to ensure that accepted fellowship applicant(s) will be able work clinically at one of our main clinical sites, which is located at a Military Hospital (Walter Reed).
  • The Ideal AIRP Abdominal Fellow has a robust clinical and research background, and intends to pursue a career as an academic radiologist; yet, by no means does this suggest that any other type of candidate will not be considered.

Educational Opportunities/Duties

  •  Attendance at the AIRP Abdominal Categorical Course
  • Attendance at the ACR Education Center Courses on Body and Pelvic MRI and Prostate MRI
  • Access to the AIRP Case Database containing thousands of path-proven examples of common and uncommon radiologic-pathologic correlation cases
  • Supervised clinical work at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (WRNMMC) with a focus on abdominal and pelvic MRI
  • Participation in weekly Rad-Path case conferences
  • Abundant research and writing opportunities
  • Undergraduate and graduate medical education teaching opportunities
  • Fulfill HIPPA requirements by reviewing and attesting to knowledge and protocols while on-site

Clinical Training Offered

The Abdominal fellowship at the ACR Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP) includes a combination of abdominal and pelvic imaging as well as the unique perspective of learning that the imaging appearance of disease is based on the underlying pathology. Clinical work is performed at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD (3 days per week).

Clinical work focuses on MR interpretation, but the fellow will have the opportunity to interpret radiographs, CT and ultrasound exams as well. The fellow will participate in multiple interdisciplinary conferences, including gynecologic-oncology tumor board and urology conference. Finally, over 300 GU cases are submitted to the AIRP and are reviewed annually with the fellow. These cases are reviewed with our pathology colleagues at 1-2 conferences per week.

Fellows are expected to perform scholarly work and present their work at a national meeting (e.g. SAR, RSNA, and/or ARRS). Overall, the AIRP fellowship provides a well-rounded experience allowing transition to either private practice or academics with a unique exposure to the pathologic basis of abdominal disease.

Certificate of Completion

The fellowship is 1 year in length starting on July 1 – June 30. Graduating fellows will receive a certificate of completion stating “AIRP Fellow completed one year of training specializing in Abdominal Imaging.”
