Pediatric Interventional Radiology

Why UT Southwestern

Approved by the Texas Medical Board (TMB), our Pediatric Interventional Radiology Fellowship program is centered at Children’s Health℠ Children's Medical Center Dallas, a private, nonprofit, tertiary-care pediatric hospital and Level I trauma center that is the primary pediatric teaching hospital for UT Southwestern. Fellows gain extensive exposure to all aspects of pediatric interventional radiology, from pre-procedure consultation and clinic, to the technical components of the procedures themselves, to inpatient and outpatient follow up care. The case mix ranges from venous access, biopsy and drainage to management of complex vascular anomalies, transplant intervention, interventional oncology and musculoskeletal intervention.  All of this with an eye toward the unique needs of children.

Our Mission

We educate fellows in a Texas Medical Board-certified residency program in Pediatric Interventional Radiology. Trainees have a variety of pre-fellowship experience, ranging from small community to larger academic residency programs. Fellows typically have completed a residency or fellowship in Adult Interventional Radiology or a fellowship in Pediatric Radiology.

Program Aims

  • Produce Pediatric Interventional Radiologists who will be successful, whether in private practice or an academic setting.
  • Impart a core set of concepts and abilities to trainees through a standardized curriculum of lectures, case conferences, multidisciplinary conferences, as well as work experience.​
  • Introduce the concept of quality in Pediatric Interventional Radiology though involvement in a performance improvement project, quality committee participation, and involvement in the Peer Learning process.​
  • Participate in a research project and attend a national meeting with a focus in Pediatric Interventional Radiology. Additionally, fellows gain an improved ability to critically evaluate scientific literature in Pediatric Interventional Radiology.​
