The Department of Pediatric Radiology at Emory University offers an ACGME-approved fellowship program which is one year in duration and comprehensive in scope consisting of twelve one-month rotations including fluoroscopy, ultrasound, body MRI, musculoskeletal imaging, fetal MRI, neuroradiology, nuclear medicine, interventional radiology and cardiac MRI. The purpose of the fellowship is to train qualified radiologists to be highly competent in all aspects of pediatric radiology in order to serve the children in their communities, be it in an academic or private practice setting. The fellow is closely supervised by the faculty which consists of 11 Board certified pediatric radiologists with MOC qualifications as well as 3 neuroradiologists and a pediatric radiologist/ interventionalist. Conferences include a weekly Surgery/Radiology conference, a weekly didactic Surgery conference and monthly interdepartmental conferences with Surgery/Pathology, Neurosurgery, Gastroenterology, Oncology, Orthopedics and Rheumatology.
All aspects of training take place at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston which is a free-standing 270 bed hospital across from the Emory campus.
