Abdominal Imaging Fellowship

Kaleigh Burke, M.D.

Class of 2020

"I chose Duke for its high volume, the diversity and complexity of pathology, and the opportunity to learn from experts in abdominal radiology in order to better prepared for sub-specialized private practice. My favorite part of the fellowship was the collegiality amongst residents, fellows, and attendings, which made it fun to go to work each day."

WHAT AN ABDOMINAL FELLOW CAN EXPECT

The faculty of the Duke Radiology Division of Abdominal Imaging strives to provide a fellowship environment conducive to trainee growth in both clinical and academic excellence. At the completion of the 12 month experience, fellows can expect to be well-positioned to join a subspecialized private practice or confidently accept an academic faculty appointment. Opportunities exist within the fellowship experience for all aspects of abdominal imaging including CT, abdominopelvic MRI, ultrasound (including vascular and first trimester OB ultrasound), and percutaneous interventional procedures (biopsy and drainage). In addition, fellows receive exposure to traditional GI and GU radiology.

DUKE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER (DUMC)

Located on the edge of the Duke University West (main) campus, DUMC encompasses a 957 bed tertiary care hospital (Duke North and Duke Medicine Pavilion) as well as outpatient clinics (Duke South and Duke Cancer Center). Although the overarching Duke University Health System also includes many free-standing clinics throughout the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area, the Department of Radiology is primarily housed within Duke North Hospital and provides radiology services for the entire Duke University Health System.

The Duke Department of Radiology provides approximately 450,000 examinations and over 20,000 interventional procedures annually. A level 1 trauma center, the DUMC Emergency Department is contiguous with the Radiology Department located on the first floor of Duke North Hospital. Abdominal Radiology Fellows may expect to encounter a broad range of pathologies through assignments in trauma service and at the Duke Cancer Center: one of the largest comprehensive cancer treatment facilities in the country. Cancer care at Duke includes specializations in hepatobiliary/pancreatic neoplasms, colorectal neoplasms, melanomas, breast cancers, neuroendocrine tumors, sarcomas, and lung cancers. The Duke Abdominal Radiology Division also supports a busy abdominal transplant service in the performance of liver, kidney, pancreatic, small bowel, and combined organ transplants.

Duke Radiology’s Division of Abdominal Imaging has close ties to an outstanding group of oncologic, urologic, and general surgeons in addition to excellent working relationships with each of the divisions within the Department of Medicine. There are particularly close collaborations with the hepatobiliary, pancreatic, colorectal, and endocrine/thyroid multidisciplinary working groups, and regular tumor boards in which our division plays a central role. These tumor boards are facilitated by faculty from all divisions, and provide outstanding educational experiences.
