Visiting Fellowships

Program Description

The Visiting Fellowship programs managed through the department of radiology are designed to provide a flexible and individualized learning experience. Although there is no direct patient contact, visiting fellows have the opportunity to participate in film interpretation, observe procedures and techniques as well as attend regularly scheduled case reviews and interdisciplinary conferences. Enrollment in the Visiting Fellowship program is limited and application in advance of the desired fellowship period is required. See individual program descriptions for tuition specific to that Fellowship. CME credit is available for Visiting Fellowships.

The Sidney Kimmel Medical College is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

Sidney Kimmel Medical College at Thomas Jefferson University designates this live activity for a maximum of 150 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™.  Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

How to Apply for a Visiting Fellowship

To determine if space is available in a visiting fellowship at the time that you prefer, please email us at with "Visiting Fellowship" in the subject line and provide the following information in the body of the email message:

  1. Your name, city, country, profession, affiliation/where you work, phone number where we may contact you and your preferred email address.  Alternatively you can attach a copy of your curriculum vitae.
  2. Which fellowship do you wish to apply for.
  3. The desired start and end dates for the visiting fellowship or the general time period and duration (i.e. “summer next year” and “3 weeks”).
  4. Provide a brief statement of your learning objectives – that is, what you want to accomplish during the visiting fellowship.
  5. Provide an indication if you will need low-cost dormitory housing during your stay. For more information on the Martin Building which is our on-campus dormitory visit web page  Overview of Martin Building and for information on costs visit pages Martin Rates and Martin Short-Term Accommodation Rates.  Visiting Fellows qualify for the "Student Rates" shown in the housing rates table.
  6. If you are NOT a USA citizen, describe your visa status.  Do you already have a visa for the United States that will cover the period for which you have requested the visiting fellowship?  If yes, provide the details (type of visa, valid from/to,  multi-entry or single entry). 

We will contact the division director(s) for approval of the proposed visiting fellowship and desired dates and, if you request housing in the Martin Building, will determine if space is available on the desired dates.   If everything is favorable, we will notify you that the visiting fellowship has been tentatively approved and that you may proceed with the full application.  We will send you all required forms at that time. 

On receipt of your application and the nonrefundable $100 processing fee we will finalize the visiting fellowship and reserve the agreed-upon dates.  At that point we will initiate processing of your visa if required.

Cancellation Policy

If you must cancel, please notify us immediately. Any payment that has been made prior to your arrival will be refunded, less an administrative fee of $100, upon receipt of written notification.  After the start of your Visiting Fellowship, no refunds will be made.  If you have any questions, please call the Ultrasound Education Office at 215-955-8533.
