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 2023-2024 fellowship schedule.

  • August 2024 (2 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.
  • September 19-21 (3 days): The fellow will attend the ACR 2024 Quality and Safety + Informatics Conference in Washington, DC. 
  • Spring 2025 (1 week): Next, the fellow will continue to gain experience by spending a week at a participating pilot site learning about informatics 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 a $500 stipend at the completion of their white paper. The fellow’s travel and living expenses during the program will be paid by the ACR.

How to Apply

The fellowship is available to fourth-year residents (R4/PGY5) and early-career professionals up to three years out of residency at the start of the fellowship. The program will connect fellows with the larger imaging informatics community and is intended for residents and early-career radiologists who have a demonstrable interest in imaging informatics but have not had significant exposure to the field at their home institutions or current organizations. All applicants are required to submit the following materials:

  • Online application form
  • Current curriculum vitae
  • Letter of recommendation

Applications for the 2024 cohort have closed. Candidates will be notified by email of the committee’s decision by early May. 

*Note: All applicants must be eligible for ACR Membership. Find information on membership categories and eligibility here.
