Fellowship Program

Fellowship Overview

The American College of Radiology (ACR) is a forward-thinking professional medical society, representing nearly 40,000 radiologists, radiation oncologists and medical physicists. Founded in 1923, ACR is a world leader in radiology economic and clinical research and a primary driver of health care’s evolution to value-based care.

The mission of the American Institute for Radiologic Pathology (AIRP), sponsored by the ACR, is to deliver unequalled training to radiology residents, fellows, and practicing radiologists from around the world. The four-week Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course is designed to aid residents and fellows in their endeavors to achieve excellence in the technologically advancing specialty of radiology, by employing radiologic-pathologic correlation in the identification of disease. The course fulfills training requirements for more than 310 radiology residency programs. The Radiologic Pathology Correlation Course is a comprehensive review of radiologic imaging with pathologic correlation providing more than 150 hours of didactic instruction and case seminars.
The AIRP Fellow positions are designed to provide additional experience for radiologists who have completed their training and an interest in academic radiology is encouraged. Educational, clinical and research activities are emphasized here at the AIRP.

The AIRP fellow has the opportunity to review numerous correlated cases submitted to the AIRP by residents attending the Radiologic Pathology Courses. The study of the pathologic basis of abnormal radiologic images is enhanced through review of case material, didactic lectures, and intramural conferences in the AIRP. The length of AIRP fellow is one year. Once completed by AIRP Fellows, the AIRP will award a certificate of completion stating “AIRP Fellow completed one year of training specializing in Musculoskeletal imaging”.
