Radiology Education and Training


Children's Hospital is the pediatric training site for Diagnostic Radiology residents from Vanderbilt University and the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. We also offer an accredited fellowship in Pediatric Radiology. We educate Vanderbilt medical students, as well as residents in Pediatrics and various pediatric subspecialties throughout the hospital, who desire added exposure to diagnostic imaging. Technologists and sonographers from local certification programs also receive their pediatric training in our department.

Pediatric Radiology Fellowship

An intensive one-year, ACGME-accredited program in Pediatric Radiology is available to qualified radiologists seeking subspecialty training. Candidates for the fellowship should be certified by the American Board of Radiology or be in the examination process by the July 1 start date. The program incorporates all clinical aspects of pediatric imaging including ultrasound, CT, fluoroscopy, MRI, Nuclear Medicine, and Neuroradiology. Specific training in cardiac imaging is also available. There are many opportunities for research and teaching.

The goal of the fellowship program fits within the three-fold mission of Vanderbilt University Medical Center: patient care, education, and research. Clinical rotations enable the fellow to gain a broad base of knowledge, develop technical skills, and establish decision-making and consultation skills. The overriding concern is patient care, both directly through imaging and special procedures and indirectly as consultant. The program provides research opportunities ranging from the basic science laboratory to high-tech imaging and clinical observations and outcomes.

Pediatric Radiology is located entirely within Children's Hospital. Our Department of Diagnostic Imaging operates two CT scanners, two MRI scanners (1.5T and 3T), a nuclear medicine facility, two fluoroscopes, three ultrasound rooms, two digital radiography (DR) rooms and two portable DR machines. There are two Pediatric Interventional Radiology suites: a biplane in the OR and a single plane in the main imaging department. We also have a dedicated classroom, large reading room, and consultation room.

A formal application is required, including letters of recommendation from faculty at the applicant's residency program. Please send all documents, including a completed application, CV, personal statement, transcripts, and three letters of recommendation to:
