The fellow actively participates in the performance and interpretation of studies, as well as in consultations with clinical staff. Fellows attend and participate in various multidisciplinary clinical conferences. They are also encouraged to participate with the faculty in clinical research projects. On-call responsibilities at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center are shared by radiology residents, fellows (in parallel), and an overnight faculty radiologist. Fellows are on call about once every 17 days.
Subsidized housing in the area is available.
