We have a very active ACGME certified fellowship program encompassing subspecialty training in diagnostic pediatric radiology.

The fellowship is designed for individuals considering both academic and private practice careers. We understand that many individuals have not yet made up their mind regarding career plans and use the fellowship to make a final determination regarding academics versus private practice. The individual should realize that our fellowships are structured to provide the opportunity for an academic career and, therefore, some emphasis is placed upon research activities (both clinical and laboratory), publication, presentations, and teaching at both medical student and resident levels. Fellows will receive training in plain film interpretation, all aspects of fluoroscopy, computed tomography, ultrasound, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine imaging, and standard techniques for imaging-guided biopsies and abscess drainages.

OVERVIEW

Pediatric Radiology section is housed in the McGovern-Davidson Children’s Health Center. Over 70,000 diagnostic examinations are performed on pediatric patients every year. Duke University is a level 1 trauma center, and over 7,000 radiographic examinations are performed in the emergency department yearly. We have a close working relationship with the pediatric surgical subspecialties including general and transplant surgery, neurosurgery, orthopedic surgery, cardiothoracic surgery, urology and otolaryngology. Duke University is a world leader in pediatric bone marrow transplantation, and fellows will be exposed to a spectrum of imaging of bone marrow candidates, from the evaluation of patients prior to transplantation to the complications associated with transplantation and immunocompromise. The fellowship is fully ACGME accredited.

FACULTY:

The pediatric radiology faculty is fully subspecialty board certified (CAQ), with individuals participating in research, writing and in pediatric radiology education and health policy on a nationwide level. For more complete details on the faculty, please see Physicians page.
