About the Programs
In addition to our residency program, Washington State University is proud to offer imaging internship/fellowship opportunities. Positions exist for both large and small animal imaging. Our personnel and equipment are outlined on the residency page, with descriptions of all modalities (digital radiography, computed radiography, fluoroscopy, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging.
Small Animal Imaging Internship
The small animal imaging position is a one-year internship, focusing on acquisition of radiographs primarily. During the program responsibilities will evolve from primary positioning to independent quality assurance and limited report writing. As the year progresses introduction to ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography image acquisition will be available. Interns will be expected to attend rounds and will be able to attend resident classes as time permits, including known case conference sessions.
Large Animal Imaging Internship
Our large animal internship program will primarily involve the acquisition of radiographic studies with an emphasis on proper positioning. Over time the intern will be expected to develop independent quality assurance procedures and have developed an initial impression of cases prior to intervention from residents and faculty. As the year progresses there will be opportunity to develop skills in the acquisition of NM, MRI and CT images. As with the small animal internship position, our large animal interns are expected to attend daily rounds, and will be able to attend resident classes and known case conference sessions when time permits.
