In addition to the daily teaching performed while interpreting examinations, performing procedures and providing consultation to clinicians, daily educational conferences are provided for the radiology resident.
The Molecular Imaging fellow is welcome to participate in as many of these conferences as they would like. The fellow is only required to attend those lectures that are applicable to Molecular Imaging, such as Nuclear Medicine and PET lectures.
Most of these conferences are taught by faculty, but radiology fellows and upper-level residents occasionally provide instruction.
All fellows are excused daily from their clinical responsibilities from noon to 1 p.m. to participate in the daily noon conference – a valuable form of radiology.
Fellows participate in a multitude of oncology multidisciplinary conferences where input from multiple subspecialties determines the optimal course of therapies for the patient.
These include bone and soft tissue tumors, breast tumors, chest tumors, gastrointestinal tumors, head and neck oncology, and molecular oncology.
The fellow will attend the Molecular Oncology conference every month and will occasionally rotate through the other tumor conferences.
Both the annual Baldwin Lectureship series and the annual Sears Seminar lecture series bring in nationally acclaimed radiologists as guest speakers. The fellows are encouraged to attend these lectures.
