Fellowship in Informatics

The application window for the 2020-2021 Fellowship will be February 1 – March 31, 2020.

This fellowship is designed to provide a radiology resident or early professional an immersive experience with the initiatives of the Data Science Institute, Connect, and DART teams. The fellowship is a three-part program that is available to 4th year residents and anyone up to 3 years out of their residency. The selected candidate will participate in the following sessions:

  • 1 Week (Fall 2020): The fellowship will begin with the fellow visiting ACR’s Reston office. During this 1 week period, they will meet with a variety of teams to be immersed in the ongoing meetings and projects.
  • 1 Week (Spring 2021): In the spring, the fellow will spend 1 week at Emory University learning about ACR's AI-LAB and how the initiative is implemented in a clinical setting on a day-to-day basis. Additional time will be allotted for didactic lectures, one-on-one mentoring, and independent study.
  • 2-3 Days at ACR Annual Meeting (Spring 2021): To conclude the program, the fellow will be invited to ACR’s Annual Meeting in May.

In conjunction with the three in-person sessions listed above, the fellow will be required to produce an Informatics white paper to be submitted to a journal, with direct mentoring from Drs. Tessa Cook and Adam Prater, as well as their mentor from Emory University.

The time of the fellowship sessions will be arranged with the fellow and their supervisors to accommodate their training/work schedule. 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.
