Fellowship Program

Welcome to the Medical Imaging, Fellowship Program

Dr. Mini Pakkal - Program Director



Welcome to the University of Toronto Department of Medical Imaging Fellowship Program. The affiliated hospitals of the University of Toronto form one of the largest teaching facilities in the world, with over 200 clinical and research faculty. They serve as an ideal setting for advanced subspecialty training in Medical Imaging. The program has national and international stature both clinically and in research, and attracts fellows from around the world.

Over one hundred funded fellowship positions, each at least one year long, are offered by the department’s eight divisions, although numbers vary slightly from year to year. Funded fellowships of less than one year’s duration are not available.

Research is an integral component of the clinical fellowship program. Protected research time is provided to all fellows. Fellows will be closely supervised and advised by one of the staff radiologists to ensure successful completion of a research project. Before completing the fellowship, all University of Toronto Medical Imaging fellows are required to produce at least one first author research paper per year of fellowship. A University of Toronto fellowship certificate will not be provided if this requirement is not met. Statistical support services are provided by the department or by the affiliated hospitals. Most of our fellows are successful at having their research projects accepted for presentation at major radiologic meetings, and published in prestigious journals.

I encourage you to apply for one of our fellowship positions.
