The first year fellows progress through all major modalities including plain radiography, fluoroscopy, cross sectional body imaging including computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound (US), neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology and cardiovascular imaging (CVI) under full-time staff supervision. During these rotations, the fellow sees extensive pediatric pathology and develops clinical skills for evaluating sick children and effectively interacting with patients, parents and referring physicians. Daily work schedules and emergency call allows the fellow to gain experience in performing procedures under staff supervision.
The Radiology fellow attends teaching conferences twice/three times a day on most days. Additional conferences include monthly interdepartmental clinical correlation conferences in Gastroenterology, Neuroradiology and ENT, and Urology, as well as Quality Improvement, General Physics, Academic lectures, and bi-weekly (Monday and Tuesday) Teaching File conferences at which time the fellow is responsible for submitting at least 3 or 4 cases per week. The fellow will actively participate in weekly conferences. Journal Club allows an opportunity for each fellow to submit selected articles for review and present them to the staff and other trainees. The fellow will also have progressive teaching responsibilities involving residents and medical students.
Elective and research time is provided.
For those electing a second year, there is opportunity for in depth concentrated study in subspecialty areas or in clinical or applied basic science research. Clinical skills can be further refined during time allocated to clinical imaging, resident supervision and pursuit of academic endeavors.
