Pediatric Radiology Fellowship

Three, one-year fellowships in Pediatric Radiology are offered through UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children’s Medical Center. Accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), the program is centered at Children's, a private, not-for-profit, tertiary-care pediatric hospital and Level I trauma center that is the primary pediatric teaching hospital for UT Southwestern.

Training/Responsibilities

Fellows gain extensive exposure to state-of-the-art techniques in pediatric radiology and will come to understand the complexities of team management of these patients. The fellow is responsible for planning, monitoring, and interpreting examinations. The fellows will be actively involved in performing fluoroscopic and basic pediatric interventional procedures.

There is a close working relationship between the pediatric radiology department and other clinical departments of the hospital. A Pediatric Radiology fellow at UT Southwestern:

  • Serves as a formal or informal clinical consultant to these various clinical services throughout the year
  • Serves as a consultant to, and teacher of, radiology residents who rotate on the pediatric radiology service

Conferences

Radiology resident teaching conferences are held twice daily throughout the year and include both didactic lectures and case-based presentations. Fellows are welcome to attend these conferences as service duties allow. Fellows will present conferences in this forum as well as more informal monthly resident cases conferences. A core curriculum in Pediatric Radiology will be offered through weekly didactic lectures by the faculty.

Radiology Grand Rounds are held monthly with prestigious visiting and local professors, offering the opportunity to meet and learn from leading national authorities on a wide variety of topics.

Informative multidisciplinary clinical conferences in combination with pediatrics, pediatric surgery, pathology, and the various clinical subspecialties are available.

Research

Intellectual vibrancy and technological innovation are core values of the Department, which are developed through research and collaborative efforts of the clinical faculty and Department Ph.Ds.

Fellows have ready access to the UT Southwestern Medical School Library only five minutes away, and most journals can be accessed online from Children's Medical Center. Texts are also available for signout and review.

A Pediatric Radiology fellow at UT Southwestern:
