The Pediatric Radiology Fellowship at Nationwide Children’s Hospital provides broad experience in all aspects of pediatric radiology.
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 currently have openings in the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Pediatric Radiology fellowship for the 2018-2019 academic year. This includes an open position for diagnostic pediatric radiology, as well as second year sub specialty fellowships in Pediatric Cardiac Imaging and Pediatric Neuroradiology.
What You Need to Know
Our program supports a well-established, state-of-the art pediatric interventional radiology program. We offer an additional pediatric interventional radiology fellowship year for those interested.
With a large staff of board certified pediatric radiologists, the fellows enjoy face-to-face teaching on a daily basis. With daily morning and noon conferences, core curriculum case conferences, and numerous interdisciplinary conferences offered each week, the fellows’ exposure to the broad range of pediatric pathology is assured.
Diverse opportunities exist for participation in clinical, laboratory bench, educational and health systems research in pediatric radiology and integrated clinical fields. Nationwide Children’s Hospital, The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and the Children’s Radiological Institute are recipients of both internal and external grant funding for clinical and laboratory bench research projects. Generous research funding is available for the interested fellow.
