Pediatric Radiology

UVA Pediatric Radiologist speaks with a young patient on an exam table

The Pediatric Radiology Fellowship at the University of Virginia/UVA Children’s is the only ACGME-approved Pediatric Radiology Fellowship in the Commonwealth of Virginia and aims to provide comprehensive clinical training in all modalities that pertain to infants, children and adolescents.

The program is structured to ensure that fellows gain competency in the performance and analysis of all imaging studies in the pediatric patient population. Fellows will develop the diagnostic and technical skills to enable them to work with referring physicians and clinical teams to provide timely and appropriate pediatric imaging and image interpretation. The fellow will develop skills to talk to pediatric patients at an age-appropriate level in a caring and respectful manner with an emphasis on family-centered care. The fellow will gain additional experience in teaching residents and medical students in pediatric imaging as well as research opportunities. Finally, the fellow will develop his/her knowledge of radiation safety and the use of the lowest dose possible to achieve appropriate imaging results in our vulnerable population.

The University of Virginia is committed to equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. To fulfill this commitment, the University administers its programs, procedures and practices without regard to age, color, disability, marital status, national or ethnic origin, political affiliation, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, veteran status, and family medical or genetic information and operates both affirmative action and equal opportunity programs, consistent with resolutions of the Board of Visitors and with federal and state requirements, including the Governor’s Executive Order Number One (2014).
