Molecular Imaging (Clinical/Research)

Supervisor: Patrick Veit-Haibach

Joint Department of Medical Imaging
Mount Sinai Hospital, University Health Network & Women’s College Hospital

This one year clinical-research fellowship is offered at the Joint Department of Medical Imaging (UHN, MSH & WCH).  The fellowship provides experience in molecular imaging research, particularly in the field of oncology. The fellow will work with research staff to gain an understanding of appropriate research methodologies, data collection and analysis. Fellows will also engage in collaborative meetings with other research groups. Furthermore, they will be encouraged to generate original research ideas and develop proposals for external funding of research activities. 

In addition to research related activities, in order to get a broader understanding of the role of imaging in oncology, fellows will be encouraged to participate in multidisciplinary tumor boards and will also take part in review of clinical oncology CT and MR cases (allocated clinical time: approximately 25%).  The clinical scope of work can be tailored to the qualifications and needs of the trainee.

UHN is equipped with 2 PET/CT scanners and one research PET/MR scanner (with an adjacent Cyclotron), with numerous industry and local researcher trials (over 30 different trials in the past 2 years, with >250 research cases each year) at the Joint Department of Medical Imaging alone. This infrastructure and volume of research presents an outstanding opportunity for research training at JDMI.
