Fellowship in Informatics

The Informatics Fellowship provides a radiology resident or early-career professional with hands-on experience in the field of informatics, including one-on-one mentoring and informatics projects. The fellow will be introduced to initiatives of the Data Science Institute®, ACR AI-LAB, and other ACR Informatics projects. Below is an outline of the 2022-2023 fellowship schedule.

  • September 2022 (2-3 days): The fellowship will begin with a virtual visit with ACR staff. During this period, the fellow will meet with a variety of teams and ACR experts and be immersed in discussions on informatics and hands-on learning projects.
  • October 22-23 (2 days): The fellow will attend the ACR 2022 Imaging Informatics Summit.
  • Spring 2023 (1 week): Next, the fellow will continue to gain experience by spending a week at a participating pilot site learning about ACR AI-LAB, including day-to-day implementation in a clinical setting. Additional time will be allotted for didactic lectures, one-on-one mentoring, and independent study.

At the close of the fellowship, the fellow will write and submit an informatics white paper with direct mentoring from Drs. Tessa Cook and Adam Prater.

The time of the fellowship sessions will be arranged with the fellow and their supervisors to accommodate their training and work schedules. The fellow will receive half of the $500 stipend when they arrive, and the remainder after the completion of their white paper. The fellow’s travel and living expenses during the program will be paid by the ACR.
