Diagnostic Radiology Fellowship

Body Imaging Fellowship

Denver Health is proud to offer a one-year comprehensive body imaging fellowship. Our mission is to provide an excellent and supportive educational experience for our fellows, covering all aspects of body imaging. All radiology attendings hold academic appointments at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and are actively involved in teaching students, residents and fellows. We offer the full spectrum of state-of-the-art imaging at our seven-story Outpatient Medical Center and in our 550-bed hospital which includes a Level One Trauma Center. Both facilities are located on the main campus in the heart of downtown Denver, Colorado. Graduating fellows will receive the necessary training and resources to excel in either academic or private practice settings following completion of the program.
