Interventional Radiology Fellowship

About the IR Fellowship

CHOP's Interventional Radiology Suite CHOP's Interventional Radiology Suite The Interventional Radiology (IR) Fellowship at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) is designed to be a one-year training program to produce a well-trained interventional pediatric radiologist who works at a high level in the clinical, research, and teaching arenas.

CHOP has one of the largest pediatric IR services in the country, performing over 3,000 cases a year. The fellowship experience provides excellent training to enter into a subspecialized pediatric IR practice, with exposure to a broad range of procedures and pathologies. In addition to standard IR procedures, fellows gain experience in technically complex pediatric interventions, including primary enteral access, cryoablation and RF ablation, embolization, angioplasty, cerebral angiography and interventions, TIPS creation, and the treatment of complex vascular anomalies. 

The IR fellow is expected to participate in all procedures under the supervision of a CHOP staff member, engage in patient care on the IR consult service, and participate in an outpatient IR clinic. The fellow will also participate in multidisciplinary conferences, journal club, and peer learning conferences.

There are several didactic opportunities that are tailored to fellow education, including weekly IR teaching conferences at CHOP and HUP, surgical case conference, tumor board and vascular anomalies program.

The fellow will be expected to participate in a research project and present at at least one major academic meeting during the year.
