The UVA Medical Center ranks in the top 100 hospitals in the country according to US News and World Report, and it is recognized as one of the 'best benchmark hospitals.' The UVa Health System is located in Charlottesville, a beautiful and highly desirable location of the Mid-Atlantic region, two hours' drive from Washington D.C., with the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west.

Thoracic imaging will be configured to provide experience in conventional radiography, CT and MRI of the chest, with focus in pulmonary, mediastinal and pleural pathology. Extensive experience will be gained in thoracic image-guided procedures, under US and CT guidance.
The Cardiothoracic Instructor will actively participate in multi-disciplinary conferences with Cardiology, Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, Pulmonology, and Pathology; as well as in daily teaching activities through interactions with residents, medical students and clinical faculty. The clinical instructor will be encouraged to participate in research projects during the fellowship.
