Our pediatric radiology fellowship program offers broad clinical experience in pediatric radiology and many research opportunities within Harvard Medical School. Excellent clinical care and superb, relevant teaching are two goals of our department.

Fellows work with our 40 Board-certified faculty members in our state-of-the-art facilities on the second floor of the main hospital building. The curriculum for the first year of the fellowship includes: 

  • Fluoroscopy
  • Ultrasound
  • Chest/Cardiovascular Imaging (CT/MRI/CR)
  • Abdominal/Oncologic Imaging (CT/MRI/CR)
  • Musculoskeletal Imaging (CT/MRI/CR)
  • Fetal/Neonatal Imaging (CR/US/MRI)
  • Cardiac MRI
  • Nuclear Medicine/PET
  • Neuroradiology (CT/MR/IR)
  • Interventional Radiology

The first year of fellowship is fully accredited by the ACGME for up to 10 fellows. A second year of fellowship consisting of focused subspecialty training and/or research is available to qualified fellows who have completed the first year of pediatric radiology fellowship at Children’s Hospital. The salary is as a PGY-6 for the first year and junior faculty level for the second.

Fellows have the chance to participate in and lead weekly departmental and interdepartmental conferences, and there is a daily teaching conference each morning and many afternoons. Opportunities for clinical and basic research in all the subspecialties are available, encouraged and supported. During rotations through the reading room, fellows are typically scheduled for a half-day to a full day of research time.

Sarah D. Bixby, MD is the fellowship program director.

Day of Your Interview

show_more_start

Welcome! We look forward to meeting you.

Candidates for the Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Program usually arrive at Logan International Airport the evening prior to their visit.

Take a taxi or a shuttle service to the Inn at Longwood Medical, where there will be a reservation in your name. (Children’s Hospital Boston pays the room charge and tax for a one-night stay.) The hotel is within a block of the hospital.

The next morning, you will begin your visit by attending the morning conference in the Wittenborg conference room (Main 2) at 7:30. During the course of the day, you will have half-hour interviews with faculty who serve on the Fellowship Selection Committee and eat lunch with the current fellows.

Your day will be finished by 4:00 p.m., leaving you ample time to return to the airport for an evening flight.

For more information, please contact Jane Choura, coordinator of the Pediatric Radiology Fellowship Program.

If you are a candidate for a fellowship in nuclear medicine, interventional radiology, or neuroradiology, your visit will be arranged through those programs.
