Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Program

  • About our Pediatric Radiology fellowships

    The Department of Pediatric Radiology of The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is accredited for 10 positions in an ACGME-approved Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Training Program. The program is designed as a one- or two-year training experience. Our goal is to develop well-trained pediatric radiologists to deliver excellent clinical radiology care, to research and teach with confidence, and who have a desire to serve and improve the discipline. The program faculty includes board-certified pediatric radiologists, neuroradiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and interventional radiologists.

    The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia is a 535-bed pediatric hospital with a large outpatient facility, associated with the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. The patient population we serve is large and diverse, extending from routine emergency cases seen in our active emergency room to complicated tertiary care cases involving oncology, cardiology, urology, pulmonology, gastroenterology, neonatology, endocrinology, neurology and surgical subspecialties of orthopedics, neurosurgery, fetal surgery, cardiothoracic and otolaryngology (ENT).

    We offer three fellowship tracks. Visit the individual fellowship page to learn more about each track and how to apply:

  • Teaching and research

    We offer opportunities for both clinical and basic research. Our department has cutting-edge technology in all the imaging modalities, and many research initiatives. Experienced clinical researchers, physicists and research assistants within the Department of Pediatric Radiology are available to work with the fellow. There are exciting research possibilities with 3T MR imaging, 64-detector CT scanning, PET/CT imaging, SPECT CT and magnetoencephalography. Our department works in close collaboration with several other teams in the University of Pennsylvania system, and we can benefit from their outstanding research programs. We also have a state-of-the-art transitional research building with animal research support for all radiology modalities.

    The fellow is expected to work on at least one research project, which will be submitted as an abstract to a major Radiology meeting such as the RSNA or the SPR and is to be submitted for publication during or the year after the fellowship is completed. We will provide ample teaching support for this academic experience so that it is rewarding and fun.

  • About the department

    Our Diagnostic Radiology Department performs over 230,000 cases a year including all imaging modalities. At present, there are 29 full-time radiologists, emeritus professor, with full-time subspecialty staff in general pediatric radiology (with subspecialty interests in musculoskeletal, thoracic, and abdominal and cardiovascular imaging), neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, and interventional radiology. We also have an active research team with seven Ph.D. scientists, three post doc fellows and nine research assistants in the areas of magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy, PET, magnetoencephalography (MEG) and scintigraphy.

    All of our imaging modalities are reviewed on PACS (iSite with Vendor Neutral Archive). We also have an imaging center at King of Prussia, which includes plain films, fluoroscopy, CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine and Ultrasound. Our Pediatric Diagnostic Imaging Center at Virtua Voorhees serves South Jersey. Additional radiography services are provided at our satellites (Bucks County, Exton, Voorhees, and Atlantic County).
