About the Pediatric Radiology Fellowship

Our one-year, ACGME / AOA approved Pediatric Radiology Fellowship provides broad experience in all aspects of pediatric radiology. With nearly a quarter million imaging studies performed per year, our program offers extensive exposure to the broad discipline of pediatric radiology in hospital and outpatient settings, including: general radiography, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, ultrasound, fluoroscopy, body CT and MRI (including fetal and cardiac MRI,) as well as pediatric vascular and interventional radiology.

Eligible candidates should have completed a residency in diagnostic radiology and be board-certified or board-eligible. The program presently accepts three funded fellows per year with a fourth position for fellows providing external funding.

Upon successful completion of the program, fellows meet training requirements for Pediatric Radiology certification by the American Board of Radiology.

We are currently accepting applications for two 2018-2019 fellowship positions.
