We are accepting applications for 2024-25 fellowship class.

We will start accepting applications for 2025-26 class on November 1, 2023.

Program Director:
Simran Sekhon, M.D.

Number of Fellowship Positions: 3 per year
Duration of Fellowship: 1 year


This fellowship offers training in Abdominal & Pelvic MRI (4 months), Non-vascular interventional procedures (4 months), and 3 months are allowed for electives. Vacation and educational leave account for the last month.


The goal of the Advanced Abdominal Imaging Fellowship is to provide high quality clinical education and prepare fellows for a high-end community or academic practice. All fellows graduating from the program in recent years have been recruited into top level highly compensated positions in California, the Pacific Northwest, and the Southwest region.

This is only one of very few fellowships in the country that offers comprehensive training in abdominal interventional procedures, including biopsy, fluid aspiration, catheter drainages, and ablations, working alongside extremely skilled faculty. Fellows also get exposed to higher end Abdominal CT exams including CT Colonography, Enterography, Urography, and CT Angiograms during their core rotations. Electives can be pursued in Musculoskeletal MRI, Breast Imaging, High Risk Obstetric Ultrasound, or Cardiothoracic Imaging (which includes lung biopsies, and thoracic drainages). Alternatively, elective time can be used for pursuing a research project with one of several faculty actively engaged in clinical research.

On-Call Duties:

Weekend call in Abdominal Imaging Division.

Fellows also have the opportunity for picking up additional general radiology shifts in the evenings and over the weekends which are compensated competitively at market rates. The University of California is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employer.
