CMRS FELLOWS

CARDIAC MRI FELLOWSHIPS

One trainee position is offered each year (commencement February) in Cardiovascular MR. The trainee will be involved in scanning of simple and complex congenital and acquired heart disease.

 

It is anticipated that the trainees will complete more than 300 scans in a 12 -18 month period and would be eligible for Level II/III accreditation (satisfying the AHA/ACC guidelines). The program has options to further advanced training at UK sites in which CMRS is in collaboration with.  Please enquire at raj.puranik@cmrs.org.au
